The release of the Gel Teserakt is an embodiment of what the brand already represents within its ready-to-wear: strong, with a play on perceptions. Unlike previous drops, the designers have focused on restyling the dimensions of the Asics runner by keeping the upper minimal with the Gel technology tooling.
The utilization of a playful tri-tonal color scheme draws attention directly to the sole of the shoe while simultaneously using the men’s wear counterpart, Gel-Kiril’s Flytefoam propel midsole. These silhouettes will come in gunmetal and gold which will be available in select retailers on Oct. 24.

It’s also clear Williams didn’t wipe the product slate clean. His first look is accessorized by a new version of Givenchy’s hit Antigona bag, with elongated straps and a more streamlined élan. It was first introduced a decade ago.
A key ringleader of the luxury streetwear scene, Williams joined Givenchy last June and became the French house’s seventh couturier. At the time, the designer vowed that Givenchy’s new
