P.E Nation cofounders Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning have been expanding their presence across the fitness, fashion and lifestyle spaces with their unique yet universal street-style focus. From design collaborations to the opening of their first brick-and-mortar store in Australia, P.E Nation continues to upscale its global presence, this time with a new sneaker collaboration with Asics — a capsule that encapsulates the styles of both powerhouses.
A vibrant reimagining of the GEL-1130 will be available in two colorways: the cream and black style consists of neutral cream, off-white and tan, layered with P.E Nation’s signature pops of fluorescent yellow and pink with an additional decorative lace and rivet rigging (a retro gorp core design detail), updated with a hiking element to the functional running shoe.
The second style, the cream and “paper bag” colorway, will be exclusively available only via P.E Nation and Asics’ e-commerce sites with a minimal black and off-white color palette, infuses elements of wide mesh, layered with smoke-cloud PU and an extended raw cut tongue, and finished off with a pull-tab at the back.
With a retail price of $140, the retro running sneaker will be available for purchase on July 25 exclusively at pe-nation.com first for two weeks, following on Asics’ e-commerce site on August.
