Australia’s P.E. Nation athleisure brand may not be a household name stateside, but it’s using strategic partnerships – like a newly-surfaced ASICS GEL-1130 – to penetrate global audiences.
Marketed under its “Sportstyle” category, the GEL-cushioned silhouette from 2008 is reimagined through a lens of ultra-vibrancy as the unisex proposition indulges in a duo of neon yellow and pink shades. A much (much) more understated combination of “Cream” and “Paper Bag” hues make up the majority of the leather and mesh upper, as well as the sole unit, with profile ASICS logos opting for a near-golden brown. Despite featuring a number of eye-catching details, the co-branded running-sneaker-turned-lifestyle-staple is sure to catch gazes because of its non-standard additional lacing system. (Andersson Bell added similar updates to his GEL-1090 collaboration in March 2021.) Together, each aforementioned component works in-tandem to create one of the more experimental takes currently offered by one of the biggest players in the sneaker space, while also getting more eyes on P.E. Nation’s work.
