Calling all basketball fans! If you love watching basketball as much as us, then you probably love playing the sport just as much as well. And with sports, comes sneakers; And with sneakers, comes ASICS.
Inspired by the GEL-EXTREME basketball shoe from 1989, Asics introduces the New ASICS SPORTSTYLE EX89™ Sneaker for everyone and anyone who loves the orange ball sport. Coming with its low-top silhouette and traditional leather construction, paired with three different team-centric colour palettes, this shoe is not only made to feel good when you shoot hoops, but it’s made to look good, too!
Basketball fans all know the importance of jumping shots during a heated match, and ASICS has made it so that the New EX89 Sneakers reflect that on the court as well. Designed with a sculpted heel shape and FF BLAST™ cushioning system, the sneakers absorbs impact when you jump or rebound.
This makes jumping shots all the more comfortable and achievable during a friendly match with your friends. And for non-athletic folks, this makes the shoes more lightweight; perfect for an everyday lifestyle.
Not a fan of basketball? Well, ASICS has also launched their new Teh Tarik-inspired ASICS GEL-LYTE™ III – made for the average Malaysian, based off one of our most iconic drinks!
Following the success of the GEL-Kayano™ 5 OG “Nasi Lemak” in 2019 and GEL-LYTE™ III “Kuala Lumpur Twin Towers” in 2020, ASICS has once again joined forces with Malaysian streetwear store HUNDRED% together with SneakerLAH to make the next iconic Malaysian sneakers – and this time, it’s tea!
Drawing inspiration from the national drink, the GEL-LYTE™ III “Teh Tarik” sneakers resembles teh tarik in more ways than one. Most notably, its “Teh Tarik” colourway comes with a bold caramel suede to resemble the beloved local pulled milk tea drink, while the red heel tab at the back is meant to replicate the red plastic strings used to tie up a bag of bungkus teh tarik.
So, if whether you’re looking to hit the court with some friends or if you just want to chill at a local mamak, ASICS has sneakers made for any and all occasions. The ASICS GEL-LYTE™ III “Teh Tarik” retails for RM 699 at HOME Concept Store while the New ASICS SPORTSTYLE EX89™ retails at RM429 at ASICS Online and any ASICS stores in blue and green colourways.
