ASICS x Brain Dead GEL-Nimbus 9: A Techno-Futuristic Sneaker Collaboration

If there ever was a shoe that embodied the essence of techno-futurism, it would be the ASICS x Brain Dead GEL-Nimbus 9. The collaborative sneaker from the boundary-pushing fashion label, Brain Dead, presents a flashy runner that is sure to make a statement with every wear.


The upper of the sneaker is dressed down in a medley of punchy pinks and maroon, complemented by fluorescent orange on the heel counter and toe-box. The red-dominant pastiche is balanced out by hits of mint and olive on the midsole and outsole. The shoe is further highlighted by the Brain Dead and ASICS co-branding on the rubber tongue label and heel, as well as obsidian rope laces.


Recently, Brain Dead has appeared in a number of collaborations, from Florence Tétier to Cecilie Bahnsen. However, their iteration of the GEL-Nimbus 9 stands out amongst the pack for its uncompromising approach to color. Keep an eye out for more information regarding the price and release date, which will be revealed in the coming weeks.
