ASICS is turning back the clock with the reintroduction of the Asics GT-2160 – a classic design from 2011 that has been revamped for modern lifestyle purposes. While ASICS is consistently at the forefront of running technology, it also recognizes the timeless appeal of revisiting iconic designs.

Originally conceived as a more budget-friendly alternative to the GEL-Kayano 14, the GT-2160 has been reimagined to blend retro aesthetics with contemporary style seamlessly. The silhouette maintains ASICS’ trademark design elements, including mesh base layers, silver accents, and a robust, function-first sole unit. The color palette remains rooted in tradition, with classic silver, white, and black, evoking a sense of the brand’s heritage.

What sets the latest GT-2160 apart is the infusion of subtle golden flair throughout the upper, adding a touch of modern sophistication to the retro running model. This harmonious blend of classic and contemporary design elements is a testament to ASICS’ commitment to evolution while preserving its rich legacy.

Underfoot, the visible GEL-cushioning and performance components maintain a simple grayscale finish, offering a tasteful contrast to the golden accents above. This thoughtful balance ensures that the GT-2160 caters to both the nostalgia of long-time ASICS enthusiasts and the style preferences of a new generation.

Scheduled for release on December 8th, the GT-2160 will be available on asics.com at a price of $120.
