The UB3-S GEL-NIMBUS® 9 sneaker was created by the Kiko Kostadinov Studio. Inspired by the concept of outdoor exploration, the team repurposed our heritage trainer with influences found in nature. Elements from scenic landscapes and encounters with the sea are translated onto the upper’s color palettes. Meanwhile, utility features like the elongated tongue loops add to the shoe’s rugged aesthetic. The segmented midsole’s GEL® technology inserts in the heel and forefoot are designed to increase shock absorption. This makes the shoe more adaptable for different surroundings.
