The ASICS Tiger x Patta GEL-MAI trainer puts a playful spin on the late 90’s trail model.
The GEL-MAI was first introduced in the late 90’s marking the next generation of GEL trainer technology. As running heritage runs very deep with all ASICS models, the GEL-MAI was a trail running trainer, designed for the dirt and terrain of ‘Off road’ running. Trail silhouettes are known for their sturdier looks, with the GEL-MAI offering the supreme cushioning and comfort for its wearers and would be’ trailblazers.
Now back in OG form and re-released earlier in the year, the GEL-MAI has already seen collab’s with the likes of Slam Jam and Bodega, now turning its attention to the city of Amsterdam with the Patta team. With fuzeGEL technology this latest iteration sees Patta putting their personal touches to the late 90’s model for everyday street use and wear. Featuring an asymmetrical lacing system with updated knitted uppers in rose gold and brown nubuck overlays. Other features include 3M reflective detailing and the Patta script logo woven into the knitted uppers.
The ASICS Tiger x Patta GEL-MAI will be launching this coming Saturday 14th October 2017 from their Amsterdam and London flagship stores and patta.nl on Monday 16th October 2017. You can also check out Patta’s recent collaboration T-Shirt with Stüssy.
