ASICS, the renowned sport performance brand, and fashion-forward Australian label, P.E Nation, delightfully announce the latest step in their thriving partnership — a dynamic, court-inspired, head-to-toe collection. This much-anticipated release follows the remarkable success of the first two ASICS x P.E Nation collections.

With over 20 unique pieces, the latest collection harmoniously fuses ASICS’ sportstyle heritage with P.E Nation’s signature retro sport lens. The goal is simple yet ambitious: to deliver functional, stylish designs that serve as the ultimate all-day uniform for any on and off court moment.

The capsule collection features a wide array of items — from skorts, leggings, and zip jackets to sports bras and cycle shorts. Each piece encapsulates the iconic sportstyle essence of both ASICS and P.E Nation, designed to cater to the urban everyday athlete’s wardrobe needs. However, the true showstopper of the collection is the updated ASICS EX89™ MT sneaker, available in two captivating colourways, Black/Glacier Grey; and Pearled Ivory/Burro.

The ASICS EX89™ MT x P.E NATION sneaker is a perfect blend of classic basketball and tennis motifs, updated with textured mesh underlays, double laces, and oversized translucent ASICS stripes. It is crafted to navigate everyday scenarios with a distinct sport-meets-street feel. The sneaker’s design incorporates the heritage elements of the GEL-EXTREME basketball shoe from 1989 with modern FF BLAST™ technology, ensuring comfort and style in any setting.

“We’re excited to unveil our third collaboration with ASICS,” said Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning, Co-Founders of P.E Nation. “The collection is a complete capsule designed for both on and off the court, enhanced with vibrant colour details that pop, creating a dynamic sport style transition from the court to the city streets.”

The collection will be available for purchase online and instore via ASICS flagship stores, ASICS online, P.E Nation, and selected retailers from the 10th August 2023. Ahead of the official release, ASICS and P.E. Nation invite customers for an exclusive first look at their collection at the P.E. Nation flagship store in Sydney on the morning of the 10th August. Attendees will have a chance to win over 200 prizes, including the new sneakers, gift vouchers worth up to $1000, visors, socks, drink bottles, and more.

Both ASICS and P.E Nation promise that this collection, inspired by the past and engineered for the future, offers the perfect blend of performance, style and future sensibility.
