ASICS has teamed up with Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s animated sitcom Rick and Morty on a footwear project consisting of two colorways of the Court MZ.
The first colorway is themed after the shows titular characters, with Rick and Morty’s head placed on the lateral heels. For a sci-fi feel, the shoe features a blue crystal outsole and a metallic silver stripe on the side panels. Other details include neon green accents as a nod to the color of the portal guns used in the show and Rick Sanchez’s catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub” on the sockliner.
The second colorway features a Mr. Meeseeks theme. The character’s anguished face appears on the heel counters and little spikes popping out the sides as a nod to the quill-like hairs the character develops after being unable to complete their task for a long period of time. Purple suede caps the toe, while blue velvet is used for the eyelets and heel. A touch of orange plush is found on the heels as well, representing Mr. Meeseeks’ hair.
Both colorways of the Rick and Morty x ASICS Court MZ are slated to release on ASICS.com and at select ASICS retailers worldwide later this month. Check them out below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
