Concepts and Asics are already releasing the Concepts x Asics Gel Respector Coca this weekend, but they have another surprise release for us that was just unveiled today.
Also utilizing the Asics Gel Respector as the silhouette of choice, the Concepts x Asics Gel Respector Black Widow comes in a black and red makeup with black suede taking over the majority of the upper and red detailing on the tongue, heel, and outsole. The name Black Widow is another reference to Miami’s drug/crime image. Griselda Blanco, also known as the Black Widow, was Miami’s queenpin and an instrumental role player in the city’s cocaine trade during the 1970’s and 80’s.
The unique thing about this pair is that it’s limited to only 250 pairs and is exclusive to Miami. The location of the release has not yet been revealed, but if you live in or plan on being in Miami this weekend we suggest you follow @cncpts for any and all updates.
A black and red Asics sneaker made out of suede? It’s hard not to like this pair. I love the exclusivity and surprise release of this pair, but I don’t like that I won’t be able to get a pair because I live on the other side of the country.
