This week’s ‘Trainer of the Week’ is the Asics Gel Saga 90’s Waterproof Suede Pack in Soft Grey. The 90’s Waterproof iteration of the Gel Saga is a seasonal update on the classic running style that is more widely utilised as a lifestyle silhouette since it’s re-emergence to retailers in 2011. The 90’s Waterproof construction combines the performance functionality of a Winter shoe with a Spring inspired palette for a fresh looking style that protects against the elements for the inevitably cold start to the year.
The Asics Gel Saga was originally produced in 1990 as a performance runner, immediately gaining popularity; becoming one of the most popular running styles available during the early 90s through its simple design, EVA midsole and signature Asics Gel cushioning. The iconic runner pioneered running technology and gained critical acclaim in both Japanese and American markets. After several years in the Asics archives the Gel Saga re-appeared on shelves in 2011 as a lifestyle offering.
The Asics Gel Saga 90’s Waterproof Suede Pack features a soft grey waterproof synthetic suede upper with waterproof suede overlays around the toe-box, heel, quarters and eye-stay for added durability at stress points and tonal leather sidewall branding. Pops of pastel violet and mint accent the upper; appearing on the top eyelet, suede tongue panel, laces, heel panel and textile mesh collar. Subtle flashes of white shadowing the leather sidewall branding, embroidered tongue and heel branding emphasise the 90s inspired pastel accents. Underfoot features a clean white midsole set off against the vibrants pops of pastel hues, which features gel cushioning for comfort and impact protection, with pastel pops on the grippy rubber outsole adding to the 90’s inspired palette.
The Asics Gel Saga 90’s Waterproof Suede Pack in Soft Grey is now available online and in-store RRP £91.95 in limited quantities. To avoid disappointment and cold, wet feet over the up-coming cold months, grab yourself a pair sooner rather than later.
