ASICS brings a collection of 8-bit pixel art with Japanese video game company, CAPCOM’s “Mega Man” game.
The ASICS x Mega Man collection stars the GEL-BND awashed in a two tone blue patent leather upper paying homage to Mega Man’s signature look. The ASICS branding is reworked in soft yellow featuring 8-bit style at its medial-side quarter to panels and throat as well as the “GEL” stamped on each heel. Additional detail is seen on the tongues where the left side reads “ASICS” in Japanese Katakana while the right remains at its traditional ASICS graphic. The collaborative sneaker finishes off with a thick blue midsole giving a nod to Mega Man’s chunky metal feet and accompanied by a special shoebox featuring the game’s original packaging artwork.
The collection also caters three graphic tees, a french terry hoodie and a bag featuring all complete with Mega Man branding and graphic prints that translates to “All Boss No Damage”.
The ASICS x Mega Man collection is now available at selected ASICS stores and ascis.com with price starting from RM169.
