This long awaited 2018 collaboration between ASICS TIGER and FOOTPATROL transports you back to the early 90’s, delving deep into the world of Japanese Anime, 2D effects and intense fight sequences.
Originally launched in 1991, this new chapter of the GELSAGA story was brought back to life after the FOOTPATROL team explored the GELSAGA archives. It was discovered that the OG GELSAGA 1 was inspired by an Anime Mecha character. This reference is visible through elements including the Titanium Grey and Iridium Blue colourways, as well as exclusive gift packs.
The 2018 version is well and truly a modern reinterpretation of the classic GELSAGA. Including a compression moulded EVA mid-sole with hidden GEL patch for added comfort, as well as a breathable upper mesh inspired by ASICS’ renowned Japanese racing shoes. Premium design touches include suede overlays, Tiger Stripes in a high gloss enamel finish and a terry cloth sock-liner. The iconic FOOTPATROL gas mask logo is embossed on the lace loop and the original ’91 product code – TJG-487 - is printed on the lace tips in a subtle and understated nod to its predecessor.
