It appears a collaboration between Asics and photographer Renell Medran‘s Ice Studios label is on the horizon. The baby blue shoe made its debut as worn by an A$AP Ferg in an exchange with The People’s Gallery, an Instagram and TikTok feed that includes on-the-street interviews with stylish individuals who break down their outfits. In the clip Ferg noted the pair he was wearing was unreleased.
Launched in 2021, Ice Studios has been embraced by New York’s cool creative class with limited edition capsules including baby tees, cargo skirts, beanies and sequin bikinis.
Last year, it was announced Angelo Baque had formed the Asics Collective, a group of creatives including Medrano plus Denim Tears founder and Supreme creative director Tremaine Emory, Procell co-founder Jessica Gonsalves and BornxRaised founder Spanto.
Each member of the group will collaborate with Asics on items planned for delivery in 2021 and 2022. The effort thus far has produced a GEL-Kayano 14 shoe by Baque and a GEL MC Plus sneaker designed by Emory. As well, Gonsalves has teased images of an Asics shoe on her Instagram feed.
