Asics has dropped a new hybrid trail runner with tactical vibes called the Gel Nandi HI Putty/Putty.
Asics is a Japanese owned brand that was actually founded way back in 1949. Since then the ASICS Group has been committed to nurturing the world’s youth through sports in order to contribute to society. The company’s vision is to “Create Quality Lifestyle through Intelligent Sport Technology” and their mission is to provide goods and services that promote healthy and fulfilling lifestyles throughout the world. Asics Sportstyle is a division of the brand that fuses together heritage and modern designs in surprising and unexpected ways. This is streetwear that’s designed to speak to your soul.
Based off the original Gel-Nandi running shoe from the 90s, this Gel Nandi HI in the ‘Putty/Putty’ colorway is formed with mesh paneling and layered suede overlays, while the integrated lacing system reinforces midfoot support. It’s got the appearance of a tactical boot, but this is actually a high top trail runner. Asics refers to it as a hybrid and we’re cool with that. We’re also pretty confident that these would be great for softball.
