Add Some Architectural Flair To Your Collection With Asphaltgold X ASICS
A city in a sneaker.
German sneaker store asphaltgold puts its home city into a sneaker with a special-edition ASICS collab. The GEL-DS Trainer channels Mathildenhöhe's famous architecture, with the lateral side looking more like a pink bridge over a gingerbread land than a sportswear logo. No? Just us?
Using high-quality materials, the sneaker has a luxurious aesthetic, and features asphaltgold's branding on the taping of the tongue as well as the flag towards the back and the insole. The exclusive release will also come in a special-edition box, complete with two sets of laces in 'Rose Taupe' and 'Evening Sand,' in addition to the standard branded ones. Sophisticated.
The release is set to be slightly unconventional. If you'd like to get your hands on a pair, you must first purchase a 10€ ticket from asphaltgold's ACG store on March 16 which will act as both a reservation for your size and a downpayment on the pair. The tickets also grant access to the release event the following night in the Designhouse Darmstadt where you will be required to pay the remaining 140€ cash.
