Our new GEL-NYC™ sneaker sources inspiration from heritage and modern performance running styles. Its upper construction references the GEL-NIMBUS™ 3 shoe from the early 2000s and blends it with various embellishments from the GEL-MC PLUS™ V design. The tooling contrasts the upper’s retro influences by using the GEL-CUMULUS™ 16 shoe’s tooling system. Through a combination of lightweight foams and GEL™ technology inserts, this midsole formation helps create advanced underfoot comfort. Nothing feels better than moving in style.
Built as a proper mashup, the all-new GEL-NYC™ sneaker combines the most iconic elements of the ASICS archive to create something new with a vintage aesthetic. With the more technically driven GEL-CUMULUS™ 16 shoe as the base, we looked to balance the overall look with an early 2000s inspired upper making the GEL-NYC™ the perfect blend of style of functionality.
Using the GEL-NIMBUS™ 3 running shoe as the base inspiration for the GEL-NYC™ shoe, we also infused the upper with elements from the GEL-MC PLUS™ V model for added dimension with color and material options. GEL-CUMULUS™ 16 tooling provides great comfort with a rear/forefoot GEL™ technology set up and FLUIDRIDE technology. The lightweight SOLYTE™ material and high rebound SpEVA™ material work together to provide shock absorption and rebound with every step, providing all-day comfort for you to experience the sound mind, sound body connection in your everyday life.
