The ASICS archives are deep with buried treasure, and one of their rarer gems have just surfaced to the delight of many running aficionados.
The GEL SIGHT was originally created for the Japanese Olympic team in 1992 and the model never officially released outside of Japan. Now it finally makes its global return, true to its original form down to the smallest detail; from the custom toe pattern, to the “Build Up” midsole, to the visible window technology found underfoot on the outsole.
The OG “World Challenger” colorway referenced Japan’s Olympic aspirations, and now sets its sights on the retro runner competition as it makes its long awaited comeback in 2015.
The ASICS GEL-Sight OG “World Challenger” is now available both in-store and online at PackerShoes.com.
Retail is set at $170 USD.
