The fourth joint project from the ASICS Collective features Jessica Gonsalves, co-founder of the NYC-based vintage shop Procell. Gonsalves, the one and only team member to choose the GEL-Nimbus 9, is taking advantage of the chance to commemorate her familial heritage and explore her inherited love of sailing.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with such an iconic brand like ASICS,” said Jessica Gonsalves. “This shoe represents the vision and inspiration I hoped to share when I learned I would be designing my first shoe collaboration.”
The Jessica Gonsalves x ASICS GEL-Nimbus 9 conceals its opulence under a straightforward and incredibly understated color scheme, tapping into the overall concepts of hidden, buried wealth. The pair imitates these diverse treasures, most notably pearls, with its off-white color scheme and transparent overlays. Co-branding completes the look by writing the name of the maker down the left sockliner in blue.
The GEL-Nimbus 9 by Jessica Gonsalves, which uses recycled materials in part, will debut at Procell on October 22. Moreover, on October 28, a broader, international launch will take place that will include ASICS.com and a few shops.
