ASICS UB5-S Gel-Nimbus 9 Black/Gunmetal
The UB5-S GEL-NIMBUS™ 9 sneaker was created by the Kiko Kostadinov Studio. They were inspired to update the heritage trainer's technical details with a series of archived trail shoe features.?
Elements from the GEL-TRAIL ATTACK shoe's line detailing are met with lace-like mesh underlays on the upper. Meanwhile, the sneaker's colouration references the look of galaxy matter that coincides with the design's futuristic influences. ?
The segmented midsole's GEL™ technology inserts in the heel and forefoot are designed to increase shock absorption. This makes the shoe more adaptable in different surroundings.
Mid-2000s aesthetics are represented through the upper’s layered mesh and synthetic leather panelling. Designed with original materials and accent details. At least 20% of the shoe’s main upper material is made in part with recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions. GEL™ technology inserts are placed in the heel and forefoot for advanced cushioning.
