The GEL-1130 is a celebration of ASICS innovative technology fused with the HAL STUDIOS ‘Design Thinking’ approach. A harmonious balance between the two brands allows the collaborative partnership to redefine the lines between performance and leisure. Inspired by the natural world, the chosen palette reflects natural hues found on trails of our home planet. Wide-open, breathable mesh underlays contrasted against faux leather paneling and brown hairy suede deliver a highly wearable walking shoe for day-to-day use.

‘Maximal Minimalism’

On the GEL-1130, HAL STUDIOS  has taken a ‘maximal minimalism’ approach to the design by stripping back the usual characteristics and aesthetics of a traditional sports shoe. Instead, we have chosen to accentuate the retro-futuristic form and shape of the archival running silhouette through the pairing of contrasting textures and tones.
Branding is kept to a minimum with subtle transparent TPU tags on the heel of each sneaker — the left shoe bearing the words “HAL” and the right “STUDIOS”. The ASICS spiral logo has been embroidered on the lateral hairy suede tiger stripes.

Made For Walking

The ASICS GEL-1130, first released in 2008 has preserved its TRUSSTIC support system to provide underfoot stability. The resin TRUSSTIC is used in the middle piece of the sole, this structure gives the shoe stability by preventing them from twisting during movement. ASICS iconic GEL technology cushioning in the heel unit absorbs shock to offer easy-wearing comfort - core to the sneakers' original identity.
