If there ever was a techno-futuristic sorbet of a shoe, it would likely be the ASICS x Brain Dead GEL-Nimbus 9. Always ones to push boundaries, Brain Dead bypasses any semblance of a neutral kick to present a flashy runner that will make a statement with every wear.
Colorful and chaotic, the sneaker is dressed down in a medley of punchy pinks and maroon across the upper, along with fluorescent orange along the heel counter and toe-box. Balancing out the red-dominant pastiche are hits of mint and olive on the midsole and outsole. Additional highlights include the Brain Dead and ASICS co-branding on the rubber tongue label and heel, as well as obsidian rope laces.
Appearing in a number of collaborations as of late, from Florence Tétier to Cecilie Bahnsen, Brain Dead’s iteration of the GEL-Nimbus 9 stands out amongst the pack for its uncompromising approach to color. Keep your eyes peeled as more information regarding the price and release date are revealed in the coming weeks.
