Asics is digging into the vault to bring back a classic for 2016. Descending from the Asics GT line is this Asics GT-Cool Xpress that first appeared back in 1994.
This OG colorway that you see above is set to return in this year and features a white suede upper with purple detailing on the outsole, leather side panels and heel. Adding another punch of color are lime accents on the heel, eyelets, by the toe, and on the outsole. If the tongue on this GT-Cool Xpress looks familiar that’s because it’s the same one that’s used on popular Gel Lyte 5. Finishing off this retro runner are a white midsole and visible Gel windows on the heel.
What are your thoughts on the return of this retro silhouette from Asics? Will you be picking up a pair in 2016?
I’m not sure if it’s the colorway or the materials on this pair, but this sneaker should have remained in the 90’s. Maybe if Asics gives it an upgrade with a new colorway and materials it’ll look better but for the time being I’m not really feeling it.
