Since 2015, Foot Locker and PENSOLE have collaborated to develop the next generation of footwear designers by fostering innovation and creativity in the classroom.

This weekend Asics will unveil the brand new “Fresh Up” GEL-180 model – a collaboration between Asics, Foot Locker and the PENSOLE Footwear Design Academy.

The design was created at PENSOLE during the Foot Locker “Fueling the Future of Footwear” Master Class. Members Brady Corum, an American footwear designer, and Vince Lebon, an Australian color and materials designer, drew inspiration from hip-hop culture’s inherent nature of creativity and innovation, to feature textures and colors from microphones, turntables, graffiti and more. 

With limited pairs produced, the Asics “Fresh Up” GEL-180 shoe will be available this Saturday, Feruary. 24, exclusively at select Foot Locker locations around the world.
