ASICS SportStyle has been killing the game with their new silhouettes designed with Kiko Kostadinov Studio. Since the start of their partnership in late 2022, the brand has introduced a handful of retro-futuristic styles including the HN2-S PROTOBLAST, UB3-S GEL-NIMBUS 9, and HS3-S GEL-NANDI SP V. As a follow-up to the UB3-S, ASICS and Kiko Kostadinov Studio now present the UB5-S GEL-NIMBUS 9.

The UB5-S GEL-NIMBUS 9 makes its debut in two colorways: Black/Gunmetal and Glacier Grey/Soothing Sea. The design draws inspiration from the concept of outdoor exploration, revamping the OG GEL-NIMBUS 9 with influences found in nature. The color palettes are influenced by elements from scenic landscapes and encounters with the sea.

Technical details include a segmented midsole with GEL technology on both the heel and forefoot for increased shock absorption, elongated tongue loops, and mesh uppers with embossed reinforcement and lenticular heel paneling.

The ASICS UB5-S GEL-NIMBUS 9 launches on August 19th on ASICS.com and at select retailers. Check out the pair below.
