The HAL STUDIOS x ASICS Gel-1130 MK II 'Forest' is a sneaker that draws inspiration from Japan's lush forests and the Shinto shrines found within them.
The sneaker features an earthy color palette with a mixture of shaggy suede, leather, and mesh paneling that mimics the forest's terrestrial tones. The hunter-orange accents pay homage to the appearance of the Shinto shrines. The retro runner’s tooling is remixed for the streets, featuring GEL™ technology in the heel for a comfortable feel underfoot. The sneaker is the second collaborative project between HAL Studios and ASICS and is a tribute to Japan's rich green landscapes. The sneaker is available in a green, brown, black, white, and orange colorway and is a sneaker of the year contender.
