Asics "ACTIBREEZE" 3D Printed Slides

Following the Adidas Adilette slides and the recent boom in mules and laceless footwear, ASICS has officially presented its new ACTIBREEZE 3D silhouette featuring a breathable 3D-printed honeycomb build. The debut iteration is found in black monochrome with rounded edges and undulating open mesh perforations.

Design accents include a diagonal groove that runs across the strap section alongside an ASICS mesh logo and a diamond-shaped matrix on the footbed. The pairs are said to slowly adapt to individual foot contours, featuring a soft, cushioned, and elastic wear feeling. ASICS debuted their 3D slippers in the athlete's village at the Tokyo Olympics and continued optimizing the pairs to aid athletes in post-competition and recovery. The open-grid structure allows heat dissipation and ventilation and is engineered to relieve muscle fatigue.

ACTIBREEZE 3D Sandals were released on the ASICS website and at select retailers for $80 USD.
