Priced at $110, the Ultra Marines will be available this Friday, June 3rd at 10am EST online at DavidZ.com as well as the David Z. flagship, first come first served (556 Broadway between Prince and Spring st. 212.431.5450). The sizes range from a men’s 5.0 to 13.0.

Everyone kept asking me what these shoes are made of, the reason these shoes were able to get so vibrant and plush is because they are mostly made of premium Pig-skin, high grade leathers I’ve been applying to most of my Asics creations. The Ultra Marine blue is Pig-skin and the Aqua stripes are made of premium nubuck. Suede just can’t capture vibrant colors the same way Pig does and I feel the texture of Pig-skin just feels richer. After wearing these Gels for the past two months the GT-II has quickly become one of my favorite trainers, extremely comfortable with no need to break in. I’m sure most of you will feel the same if you get your hands of them. Shots by Sean Munro
