Naruto Collaborates with ASICS for New GEL-NYC Sneakers
Since its creation in 1999, Naruto has become one of the most popular Japanese manga and anime series in contemporary culture. Over the years, Naruto has not only continued in the form of anime, but it has also made its mark in popular culture through collaborations with various brands. The latest collaboration is between Naruto and ASICS, resulting in a brand new release of the ASICS GEL-NYC sneakers.
The GEL-NYC silhouette, known for its performance and style, now takes on a unique Naruto-inspired theme. The design draws inspiration from Naruto’s Sage Mode, incorporating recognizable elements from the show. The sneakers feature a lace lock with Naruto’s scroll, a nod to Western imagery in the form of a scratch, a dubrae adorned with the Leaf Village logo, and Naruto Uzumaki’s logo on the tongue.
Sleek and Versatile Look
The predominant color of the shoes is black, creating a sleek and versatile look. However, Naruto’s signature orange shade and fuschia accents add vibrant pops of color, paying homage to the character’s iconic appearance. The ASICS side logo is presented in white, providing a contrasting touch. Each pair of sneakers comes in a special edition box, adding to the overall exclusivity of the collaboration.
