ASICS X UP THERE GT-II
Color : Metroporis / Piedmont Grey
New ideas blossom through a collaborative partnership between us and ASICS. Our transpacific partnership is expressed through floral emblems, inspiring a unique version of the ASICS GT-II sneaker.
As the official flower of Hyogo Prefecture, Japanese Chrysanthemum represents ASICS, whilst Pink Heath is emblematic of Up There’s home in Victoria, Australia. This botanical union is symbolic of a partnership bridging oceans and language barriers, galvanised through a decade of working together.
As representations of home and environment, both flowers are expressed pictorially and through a distinct colourway. A crochet mesh is stained with the tones of Pink Heath, colours bleeding and blending into one another. Each tongue depicts both Japanese Chrysanthemum and Pink Heat with intricate embroidery on alternate shoes.
