This ASICS GT-2160 Soars Above the Clouds

ASICS is keeping the GT-2160 momentum going, tapping Australian-based retailer Above the Clouds to give its newest model a spin.

In the best looks yet, the Above the Clouds’ GT-2160s are realized in emerald green, cream, and silver with blue accents. The oceanic palette tops the shoe’s signature synthetic upper, which also features surprise semitransparent paneling.

Cecilie Bahnsen explored a similar translucent concept with its GT-2160 collab, except the brand’s pairs went the Mary Jane route (the shoes, that is).

Besides some co-branding and traditional ASICS logo placements, that pretty much wraps up Above the Clouds’ ASICS collab — and that’s perfectly fine.

Above the Clouds tends to keep things on the simple side anyways, evident with its relatively-calm ASICS GEL-1090 and Skycourt collabs in the past.

The collaborative GT-2160s boast a tad more color compared to past team-ups, and we’re not complaining. It’s an A1 scheme, certainly another banger for the GT-2160 books.

Set to release on October 13, Above the Clouds’ ASICS GT-2160 will launch on the Australian retailer’s website via raffle (registrations close on October 6).

ASICS’ GT-2160 has quite the debut, having seen spins by DIME and Cecilie Bahnsen. Not to mention, it’s also got a few solid general releases and sought-after KITH-exclusive schemes under its lace so far.

Now, the silhouette reaches for star status by going, well, above the clouds.
