Kiko Kostadinov's association with Asics has consistently blurred the lines between high fashion and performance wear. The partnership has given sneakerheads and fashion enthusiasts a slew of coveted releases. While Kostadinov's influence on Asics' SportStyle line is evident, the inception of the premium Novalis sub-label has captured the imagination of many. With the spotlight now on the Novalis line, the upcoming Gel-Teremoa silhouette is set to be a game-changer.
The Kiko Kostadinov x Asics Novalis Gel-Teremoa Pack showcases design finesse in its two launch colorways: Black Grey and Brown Mustard. Each sneaker combines luxurious leather with durable mesh. The leather panels on the midfoot, set in accent colors, enhance the aesthetics and cleverly integrate the iconic Asics Tiger Stripe. A duo-tone approach on the collar, vamp, and tongue offers visual depth. Unique Asics Novalis typography lands on the tongue and collar, while the classic Asics logo graces the insole. The sneaker's foundation is a robust foam midsole equipped with TPU reinforcements in the heel. The signature Gel cushioning and an intriguing cutout near the heel add to the comfort factor. Completing the design is a wavy rubber outsole, ensuring durability and grip.
The Kiko Kostadinov x Asics Novalis Gel-Teremoa Pack will release October 2023 through Asics and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price has yet to be announced.
