ASICS joins forces with European outerwear brand KASSL to create 30 pairs of the GEL-1090. The KASSL Editions x ASICS GEL-1090 will be raffled off by END Clothing with all proceeds being donated to the mental health charity, Mind.
“We are so grateful to ASICS for their support through the Crafts for Mind activity,” said Emma Ihsan, Head of Corporate Partnerships at Mind. “We believe that the sport sector has an important role to play in emphasizing the link between physical activity and good mental health. The funds and awareness generated through this activity will enable us to continue to provide advice, information and support so that no-one has to face a mental health problem alone.”
Besides the fact that these ASICS GEL-1090s support a good cause, these sneakers are special as they come dressed in a unique protective covering. You’ll definitely be ready for Springtime showers as the puckered protective sheath covers the toebox that has a breathable mesh underneath. The rubber sheath is handcrafted and has a dripping effect that runs onto the midsole. This sneaker is offered in two colorways, with inverting shades of green and white. END Clothing notes that these sneakers are considered art pieces and that they should be worn at your own risk.
The raffle for the KASSL Editions x ASICS GEL-1090 is open now and ends on January 28, 2022. The price is set at $259. To enter, visit the END Clothing online raffle. For more ASICS releases and updates on all your favorite sneakers, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
