ASICS and Brain Dead first teamed up in 2021 with the TRABUCO MAX™ ‘Chaos Slime’. Both brands continue their successful partnership building two new GEL-NIMBUS® 9 footwear models. The sneakers originally released in 2007, the GEL-NIMBUS® 9 sneakers was built for runners seeking supportive cushioning on the road.
In this early 2000s era of ASICS performance footwear, the development team shifted towards a more segmented midsole design. With GEL® technology inserts in the heel and forefoot, this tooling helped create better cushioning and a more stable landing.
Both ASICS x Brain Dead designs remain true to the original release of the GEL-NIMBUS® 9, and will be launched in two divergent colourways accentuated by bold contrasts and colour blocking; Rio Red and Night Shade. The industrial look harks back to the turn of the millennium aesthetic and styling.
The Brain Dead x ASICS GEL-NIMBUS® 9 capsule collection will retail for $280 AUD and are now available at wearebraindead.com, ASICS.com and select retailers. Make sure you sign up to our news letter. For other ASICS features, click HERE and for sneaker features, click HERE.
