Vegan leather for ASICS by GmbH GEL-CHAPPAL™

‘The fourth collaboration between ASICS and GmbH, is perhaps the most progressive evolution of their ongoing project.

At the core of Berlin-based fashion brand GmbH, is storytelling through the technology of garment making, mixed with their rich personal heritage as children of immigrants in Europe. The GEL-CHAPPALD™ is taking GmbH’s vision of juxtaposing history and modernity to its purest form. The upper has a crisscross of overlaying vegan leather straps, inspired by a Peshwari chappal, a traditional sandal from Pakistan, while the sole retains all the function and comfort of ASICS unsurpassed GEL technology. 
The result is neither a formal shoe, nor a sneaker in the conventional sense. 
It comes in two colourways: burgundy and black.

For its launch GmbH worked with Indian artist Sam Madhu on creating a digital animation with music by Indonesian duo Gabber Modus Operandi, bringing to life GmbH’s global community at the apex of heritage and futurism.’
