If you’re an Asics head you know how special the Gel Saga is. Now, the Japanese brand has give the classic a proper retro for 2018.
Originally released in 1990, the Asics Gel Saga features the brand’s tried and true Gel cushioning embedded within a lightweight EVA midsole. It flaunts classic late-80s styling like contrasting Asics tiger stripes and welcomed the ’90s with neon colorways and new technology.
This sneaker uses the standard build from its time; it’s constructed with suede and mesh, and there’s padding everywhere — tongue, collar, and heel. Reflective details hit the heel for visibility.
The 2018 Asics Gel Saga retro retails for $100 and has appeared in two colorways — White/Asics Blue and White/Orchid — at boutiques like Feature and Sneaker Politics. Expect more colorways as we get deeper into summer.
