During this season of heightened patriotism, ASICS has revealed the limited edition GEL-Blur 33 2.0 Flag Collection, featuring a USA-themed shoe decked out in a complete red, white and blue colorway. In addition to the USA-themed shoe, the collection also includes Canadian and Brazilian make-ups. Inspired by country flags, the shoes feature unique mismatched designs. For the American version, the right shoe sports red-striped fabric, while the left shoe has white stars.
The U.S.A. version was recently debuted by ASICS athletes Lolo Jones, Bryan Clay, Ryan and Sarah Hall and Deena Kastor, amongst others, at the U.S. Track & Field Trials in Eugene, Oregon.
“The shoe is a fun and vibrant way to display patriotic spirit,” says ASICS Senior Product Manager, Tom Garza. “Each model uniquely represents its respective country – the United States shoe features stars and stripes, the Canada shoe has maple leaves and the Brazil shoe has bright and bold colors representative of the exotic country.”
These ASICS running shoes feature the brand’s all-new, modified MONO-SOCK contruction with stretch mesh for slipper-like comfort. ComforDry Sockliner is made from anti-bacterial material that not only reduces odor and moisture, but also provides additional cushioning. Personalized Heel Fit (or P.H.F.) creates a custom feel. A supportive external cage wraps the midfoot providing a secure and comfortable fit, ready for the road. Tooling includes the award winning GEL-Blur33 midsole and outsole and rearfoot GEL Cushioning System for shock absorption.
