ASICS x Mega Man


Fancy some old school 8-bi fun? Well ASICS has teamed up with CAPCOM, to create their Mega Man collection which consists of a sneaker and apparel.

The collaboration sneaker was designed based on the GEL-BND™ sneaker, a model that has evolved from a triathlon shoe which is visual similarity to Mega Man’s feet in the game. The upper material was selected to reproduce the textures of 8-bit graphics from classic video games, while the detail of the shoelace holder was taken from Mega Man’s buster. Even the shoe box is inspired original art from the game cartridge.

Also the collection, was designed with the aim to express the fusion of sports and gaming.  On one of the T-shirts, Mega Man is shown accelerating after getting ASICS shoes as a fictitious game item. Available now at selected ASICS stores and asics.com, and starts from MYR169.
