Earlier this week I got the chance to trial run the brand new re-released ASICS Skycourt‘s before they dropped online and in stores and after having worn them in I can tell you first-hand these comfy rides are ones you must have! Not only are they the perfect get around shoe, because of their comfort and ease of wear, but their minimal aesthetic make them the perfect staple for any wardrobe and with this new re-release of there cult classic icon fans, new and old, of the brand are sure to delight in what will be a must have item! The revamped archive is filled with modern technology and while draws it’s inspiration from the original piece the new items are not only tech smart, but 2021 smart!
Borrowing design influence from the indoor court offerings of the 80s and 90s this shoe was invented to be the perfect accessory to any man or woman’s day. Incorporating sports tech and street tech the shoe’s versatility and ease was what made it a revolutionary icon and while that hasn’t changed the brands new technology and innovation, such as that of enlisting the upper aesthetic from the GEL-ALTITUDE volleyball shoe and the leather construction being complemented with retro brand appropriate stripes and featuring an updated midsole design that incorporates the same cupsole tooling as there JAPAN S sneaker the nostalgic nod to an era revisited in modern fashion is the perfect way to cap this new must-have off.
If you’re yet to see the new ASICS Skycourt then look no further! Take a look below at my day with the brand or head online or in-store now to see the full range for yourself, and do yourself a favour and get yourself a little bit of heritage and see just why this incredible brand is at the top of the must-have shoe list…
