RELEASE DATE: 2018.11.01

The GEL-DELVA™, the third stage in ASICS’ collaboration with Kiko Kostadinov, launches November 7th for Autumn Winter 2018. Building on the previous two iterations, Kiko continues to re-interpret the relationship between high-end performance and design, crafting a distinct new model as well as integrating ready-to-wear.

Debuted during Kiko Kostadinov’s AW18 show in London, the GEL-DELVA™ fuses the GEL-FUJI TRABUCO™ 7 upper, with GEL-KAYANO™ 24 heel tooling, featuring a unique mesh that cages the ASICS stripes. The sole incorporates ASICS’s FLYTEFOAM™ technology, paired with Dynamic DUOMAX™ material, providing firm and adaptive cushioning. Impact Guidance System (I.G.S™) rounds off the technical element of the sneaker, promoting natural movement working in tandem with the wearer.

Reflected in the runway collection, the GEL-DELVA™ colours come in Cement Black, Rosewood Brown and Pine Green. Alongside this, Kiko has also developed ready-to-wear in the form of skin-tight baselayers, creating long sleeve tops and tights. Bulgarian ceramics continue to inform the aesthetic of the collaboration, illustrated through graphic strands stretching across the chest and thighs.
