ASICS x F / CE. Popular trail running shoes are jazzed up with Gore-Tex and innovative colors!

2 years ago

The other day, the latest collaboration item with Helinox, was announced by F / CE, and soon after news of another hot collaboration has arrived!

This time, a surprising collaboration with the global team of shoe maker ASICS, has lead to the development of some Gore-Tex outdoor shoes.

GEL-Fujitrabuco 9 G-TX ¥18700

This is a collaboration model based on the philosophy of FCE combined into the trail running model of shoes from ASICS. The military-like earth color scheme with the shades of orange arranged everywhere gives it a unique and appealing look. Even though it is a trail running shoe it gives the impression of being compatible with street style.

Of course, there are plenty of highlights in terms of functionality. GORE-TEX is used for the upper to cope with bad weather, and the upper midfoot is equipped with a “PU midfoot support panel”. It helps to keep the foot supported across a wide range of surfaces.

In addition, a half monosock structure that integrates the tongue and the upper inside the shoe is adopted. This helps to improve the fit and prevents foreign objects such as pebbles from entering.

The outer sole is fully equipped with ASICS GRIP, which demonstrates high grip capabilities even in slippery conditions such as on wet rocks to help support comfortable trail running.

The lightweight FLYTE FOAM midsole provides cushioning and stability that is sufficient for long races of 100km or 100 miles or more.

From the GORE-TEX upper to ASICS’ original outsole, and the half-monosock structure with a rich fit, these trail running shoes leave nothing out. The stylish design provided by F/CE makes this a pair of trail shoes you will want to wear not only outdoors but also out on the town.

The release is set for some time during May. We hope to see people wearing them and attending festivals this year!
