Asics x Woei “Vintage Nylon”

We got a preview yesterday, now we have the chance to take a closer look at the upcoming collaboration by Woei.

Woei is having their 10th anniversary this year and took their chance to work with Asics. The shoes fabric is inspired by the 80’s. This reminds me a bit of the collaboration done by Colette in 2007 as they did a Gel Lyte III where the colorway is inspired by typical 90’s colors. So a well-chosen path by Woei.

The materials are, as the name of the sneaker is telling, focused on nylon. The toebox is really made in oldschool nylon material and other parts are made in suede. There are reflective applications, the Woei logo on the heeltab and a co-branding on the split tongue.

For me, this collaboration has everything to find its success. Combined with the apparel, in my opinion this has to be the Asics collaboration of the year.

The Vintage Nylon will be available at Woei on November 4th. There are 200 special boxes including the vintage sports jacket priced at 200€. If you want to cop the sneaker without jacket, they will be priced at 150€.
