ASICS Links Up With Brain Dead For GEL-Nimbus 9

An eye-catching take on the sporty aesthetic.


[Update 18 Jan 2023] With a scheduled release date of 24 January, an additional “Green/Purple” colorway is also set to arrive alongside the “Rio Red/Almost Apricot”. Check out the official images of the second pair on the top slider above as we await for the official release.


Going strong on collaborations for the past years, sports enthusiasts’ favorite ASICS has offered a versatile catalogue of releases with Awake NY, SHUSHU/TONG and more through reinterpretation of classic silhouettes. This time, invited to the family of partners come Los-Angeles-based label Brain Dead for their latest take on the GEL-Nimbus 9.

Reflecting the creative output of the latter, the ASICS x Brain Dead GEL-Nimbus 9 is seen outfitted in a striking red mesh base, overlayed with pink panels on the sides. As orange hits the toe-cap and heel counters, olive wraps the midsoles before pink finishes the mudguard on the bottom. Keeping details minimal on the pair, the duo’s identity is only found on the shoe tongue and expectedly, the insoles.

No additional details are known at the moment, but expect the ASICS x Brain Dead GEL-Nimbus 9 to arrive in the coming months via ASICS, Brain Dead and selected retailers. In the meantime, stay tuned here as we will bring the latest updates to come.
