With a rich heritage stemming from Japanese roots, Asics has consistently delivered top-tier running shoes to athletes and enthusiasts alike. As the brand continues to innovate and diversify its portfolio, unexpected collaborations, like this season's team-up with Canadian musical sensation Charlotte Cardin, certainly grab attention. This collaboration gives a fresh spin to the EX89, a silhouette designed initially for basketball courts and now reimagined for urban terrains.
The Charlotte Cardin x Asics EX89 emanates elegance and is drenched in an all-neutral palette. The sneakers, crafted from sumptuous leather, adopt a low-profile stature, ensuring versatility in styling. Ensuring the wearer's comfort remains uncompromised, Asics' FF Blast technology is embedded within the insole and heel wedge. With each stride, the intricate detailing becomes evident. From the striking branding that graces the heel to the pronounced logo adorning the tongue, every element underscores the collaborative spirit of this release.
The Charlotte Cardin x Asics EX89 W will release September 30, 2023, through Asics and select retailers online and in-store. Available in women’s sizing, the retail price is set at $185.
