The ASICS Tiger GEL-1090™ running shoe debuted in 2003 and features a reimagined modern lens, while retaining its signature design details. Initially drawing inspiration from the sleek lines of a motorcycle, this shoe is meant to emphasize the idea of speed. Reissued with a simplified upper, this retro runner preserves its influential features, like the tiger claw marks on the toe overlays and heel counter. Similar to the motion of a waving checkered flag, sweeping lines appear along the midsole, while the heel is layered with GEL® cushioning to increase comfort. Reimagining the heritage of the GT-1000™ series, the GEL-1090™ sneaker returns with its original performance running aesthetic, while revamping its functionality with improved comfort and cushioning.
- Rearfoot GEL® cushioning dissipates impact in every step.
- Attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition.
