Metallic Leather Running Shoes

ASICS & atmos Give the GEL-Inst.360 Sneaker a Captivating Makeover

— November 7, 2018 — Fashion
Fashion label atmos works in partnership with ASICS once again -- this time the duo uses the GEL-Inst.360 sneaker as the foundation. The new piece retains the footwear model's functional element whilst giving it a tonal makeover with hues that are bound to gravitate attention. Notably, this iteration marks the duo's third GEL-Inst.360 collaboration this year, with previous colorways of black and pastels.

The latest GEL-Inst.360 sneaker is complete in metallic silver throughout the uppers in mesh materials and reflective accents across the lacing system, heel area, and toe box in leather. The same silver leather material completes the shoe's branding accent on the medial side. For contrasting accents, the sneaker is complete with a bright 'University Red' tone on the sole unit and the GEL-Inst.360 branding detail. 'Marine Blue' marks ASICS' branding over the lateral area to round the entire piece out.
