The SKYCOURT™ NEW STRONG™ sneaker borrows design influence from our indoor court offerings from the 80s and 90s. This version draws inspiration from springtime motifsâ€”the season to begin in Japan. This colorway symbolizes the refreshing hues of Japanâ€™s skies, mountains, and rivers that are dressed in harukasumi(spring mist).
Enlisting the upper aesthetic from the GEL-ALTITUDE™ volleyball shoe from 1990, the sneaker is also complemented with retro ASICS Stripes for a nostalgic nod that reference our past.
Featuring an updated midsole design that incorporates the same cupsole tooling as our JAPAN S™ sneaker, this silhouette has been reimagined with a minimalist aesthetic that speaks to our brandâ€™s heritage with a timeless design.
Upper is inspired by the GEL-ATTITUDE™ volleyball shoe
