For the first time outside of Japan: Asics Gel-Lique

Lately Asics has been rummaging through their old models like they did with the GEL Respector, but now it’s the Lique’s turn, a forgotten running model from the 90s that was only sold in Japan. Full of evocative curves, the oblique shape of the front gave it the name of Asics Gel-Lique (from oblique). The name coincidentally matches the Latin genitive, liquid, which literally means “of liquid” or “watery”, as well as “serene”. Coincidence or not, the name is fitting and is even more so for the recently launched Asics Gel-Lique model, which comes in the intense navy blue color “Indian Ink”.

The base of the upper is made of breathable mesh and on top of it, what stands out the most are the overlaid curves with the brand’s prototypical shapes in suede.
