The ASICS 'METARIDE AMU' sneaker has been created in collaboration with Japanese architect Kengo Kuma as a shoe design that takes an artistic approach to sports footwear. The sneaker features a series of fabric strips wrapped around the body of the shoe that draws a comparison to Yatara bamboo weaving techniques. This creates a somewhat chaotic look, but actually works to keep the foot securely in place and supported at all times during wear to make the sneakers ideal for demanding activities.
The ASICS 'METARIDE AMU' sneaker features a brown midsole that's made from Flytefoam, which makes use of cellulose nanofiber to put a focus on strength, durability and an eco-friendly design. This also helps to create a visual break in the aesthetic of the footwear to make it a modern option for athletes and the style-conscious.
