Located in Paris among other cities – Surface to Air is known for its passion and
dedication of bringing new and exciting ideas to the table. As a full time fashion
brand, creative & film studio, inspiration comes from all types of different media.
From the city of Kobe, Asics has been producing for the past 60 years originally
under the name Onitsuka Tiger, some of the finest running shoes, conceived with
athletes within a scientific approach.
Sharing the same values of quality, aesthetics and innovation; ASICS and Surface to Air
have teamed up to create a fresh interpretation of the classic Gel DS trainer 14.
Resulting from the Surface to Air style-savvy and the Asics technologic expertise,
the Gel DS trainer 14 is a sleek, lightweight structured sneaker that can be worn
for running or to stride along the streets. They are performance shoes for people
who have a sense of esthetic but most importantly who practice sport more than
talk about it. Inspired by radical lightening storms and the technical garments worn
on Olympic swimmers, the shoe design is striking by the attention to its’ detail: the
sneaker comes in an all black color way yet the different innovative materials used
on the upper add a subtle graphic effect. Reflective piping & the Surface to Air logo
are featured on the tongue, toe box and on a metal eyelet on the side-panels.
A canvas shoe bag that can be worn as a backpack as well as a complimentary
t-shirt are included with the pair of sneakers.
The model will be released in honor of the Marathon de Paris on April 10th 2011.
ASICS and Surface to Air are proud to present the Gel DS trainer 14.
