From its start as a partnership between TypoGraphics and PES, Japanese label Optimysik has been turning out interesting collaboration designs since its establishment in 2005, including this most recent one with ASICS. Based on the ASICS Procourt, a classic basketball hi-top. The ASICS x Optimystik – Procourt Exclusive feature a quilted patent leather vamp. Overlays and accents, in turquoise, white and pink, were “pearlized” first, then “antiqued” to give an overall vintage effect. The cracked pearlized portion also give the sneaker an unique iridescence hue. Similar effect appears on the sole also, which is constructed out translucent rubber, again in turquoise colorway, and embedded with hundreds of metallic glitters. A fluorescent yellow insole with imprinted details of a classic boombox, along with ASICS insignia.
The ASICS x Optimystik Procourt Exclusive will be available for sale in Japan near the Christmas shopping season. However, online store eproze is currently taking pre-release reservation for them.
