Both ASICS and Vivienne Westwood share a long brand history of design and championed uniqueness - with quality, craftsmanship and innovation at their core. This shared history and distinction to transcend the ordinary brought about this timely collaboration.
The ASICS x VIVIENNE WESTWOOD footwear collection launches at HANON August 17th.
The GEL-DS TRAINER OG™ shoe is based on the colour palette of the iconic Vivienne Westwood multi-coloured orb logo. Mesh material in pops of primary colours sit against black suede with 3M reflective tiger stripes – giving a graphical look to the architecture of the trainer. As an added detail, the François Boucher painting with the Daphnis & Chloe, 1743, is printed on the insole of the sneaker.
Each sneaker in the collection features the Vivienne Westwood multi - coloured orb logo bonded to a reflective strip on the back of the shoe and the Westwood CHAOS quota stitched to the side of the trainer.

Referencing this period, the HyperGEL-LYTE sneaker is designed with the romantic rococo painting Daphnis & Chloe by the 18th-century French artist Francois Boucher, printed on the body of the sneaker. The painting is housed at one of Vivienne’s favourite art galleries in London, The Wallace Collection. The overall celadon colour appropriately restores the rich colours of the 18th-century oil painting, whilst the pewter shoelaces, bright orange tiger stripe, delicate embellishment of shoe buckle and the colourful orb logo on the shoe heel bring a modernist graphic look to the sneaker.
The hybrid material mixes the rebound response of TPU beads with cushioning properties of GEL™ technology, giving the wearer a truly unique look and an amazingly comfortable fit.
