The collaboration is distinctive to NEEDLES and ASICS, arriving in a striking black and purple color combination. The color scheme is often seen on NEEDLES’ tracksuits and the shoe gives a nod to the Japanese apparel brand with the all-black upper and vibrant purple accents. The shoe is constructed out of canvas for the upper and tumbled leather overlays. NEEDLES’ purple highlights the rubber outsole while the shoe features black GEL-NYC midsoles that are known for its added support and comfort.
