Asics are known for a lot of things, their shoes are super supportive, comfortable, durable and high quality. All of these qualities are important factors in a great running shoe. However, the one issue with Asics is that they all look awful. Their latest collaboration with Canadian streetwear company, Reigning Champ has changed this.
Reigning Champ has built a reputation making the best sweats known to man; they perfectly combine quality and clean, classy silhouettes with a street edge. The collaboration between the two has resulted in this, the Gel-Cumulus 21 G-TX, a sneaker that combines the comfort, stability and quality of Asics and the cool aesthetics of Reigning Champ.
Whilst a seemingly strange collaboration the result is quite possibly the perfect workout sneaker. Whilst it isn’t all that cheap at $235, the fact that these could be the greatest Asics of all time, if the not greatest running shoes of all time, makes them worthy of your hard earned money. Act fast though, they’ve sold out almost everywhere and it’s easy to see why.
