Street Bound In The ASICS GEL-NYC

Rooted in sports, ASICS is known for performance running silhouettes built for the track, the trails and the tarmac.

But with the focus of footwear shifting to city life, the GEL-NYC delivers the best of both worlds.


Originally dropping at JD last Summer, a year on and the trending trainer lands in two exclusive colourways!


When the Sun Hits

Made plans in town? Or need a go-to pair that stays fresh on your commute to and from the office? That’s where the GEL-NYC comes in. Channeling the bustling streets that urban settings bring – hence the name NYC – the design pairs together both the brand’s heritage and modern runners.


Now dropping in Grey and Cream colourways for men, these tonal shades are set for warmer months with a breathable mesh base on the upper.


Referencing the GEL-NIMBUS 3 and GEL-MC PLUS V shoes, the wavy panels pair stitched synthetic leather and suede fabrics on top of each other for extra durability.


Featuring a flexible tongue and a classic lace fastening for an easy, adaptive fit, they’re sat above a contrasting tooling system taken from the GEL-CUMULUS 16.


The performance-based design doesn’t stop there. A combo of lightweight foams and signature GEL technology inserts help to deliver next-level cushioning and shock-absorption to keep your ride super-smooth.



With a split rubber outsole that grips every step, both pairs are finished off with iconic ASCIS logo on the tongue and heel, while the Kobe coast inspired waves hit the sidewalls.


Made for Movement

How are you repping yours? From tees and shorts combos to cargos and lightweight jackets, they offer versatile style to match the weather.


Whether they’re in your everyday rotation or you’re saving them for weekend, go JD-exclusive this season with the latest ASICS GEL-NYC trainers right here.
