The Asics Gel-Terrain, the latest creation from Japanese athletic shoe powerhouse Asics, marks a significant step in blending the vintage charm of retro runners with cutting-edge technology.

Known for consistently delivering top-notch styles in retro running shoes, Asics has recently teased an exciting array of designs for the coming year. Among them is the Gel-Terrain, a trail-ready model that borrows heavily from the GEL-FUJITRABUCO™ series. However, this new variant has a more mainstream appeal than its predecessors. At first glance, the Gel-Terrain echoes Asics’ design ethos from the 2000s and also shows traces of the brand’s successful collaborations with Kiko Kostadinov, a designer known for his innovative approach to fashion.

The technical aspects of the Gel-Terrain are not to be overlooked. It features technical welds and no-sew elements that enhance its sleek look while improving its performance. The speed lacing system is not only a convenience feature, but also a nod to current fashion trends, particularly appealing to “gorpcore” style enthusiasts.

Underneath, the shoe inherits the FLYTEFOAM™ and GEL™ cushioning system from the Asics GT-2000 8, a budget-friendly runner that has garnered acclaim over the past decade. This integration of heritage and modern technology results in a shoe that stands out in the trail-inspired footwear segment. In addition, the Gel-Terrain will be available in a variety of colorways, showcasing the versatility of its technical design.

The Gel-Terrain is slated for an overseas release through asics.com in mid-January 2024 and will be priced around $150 USD.
