After two successful collaboration projects with the SKYCOURT™ and GEL-1090™, Above The Clouds are at it again. ASICS Sportstyle and Above The Clouds announce their third collaboration; an evolution of the GT-2160™ sneaker.

Blurring the lines of performance, art, fashion and design; the Above The Clouds x ASICS GT-2160™ presents a juxtaposition of experimental materials which refine the existing silhouette, and break new grounds in product development, craft and design thinking.

Inspired by Japanese architecture and product design, the composition of the shoe mixes old and new and draws from the unyielding reliance of considered Japanese craftsmanship. Transparency as a grounding theme continues through the choice of a NEXKIN upper, constructed to allow the wearer choice in appearance whilst maintaining the technical design language of the GT-2000 series.


With function and design at the core of the collaboration, the Above The Clouds x ASICS GT-2160TM is constructed to be interesting yet pragmatic, where coloured details serve as compliments to metallic finishes which never compromise on comfort with the fusion of ASICS’ advanced technology.

The Above The Clouds x ASICS GT-2160™ will launch exclusively at Above The Clouds on Friday 6th of October and will be available globally on the 13th of October, 2023 from asics.com and selected ASICS stockists.
