The new distinctive design mixes formal and casual styles, specifically the criss-cross uppers of sandals, which have been inspired by the chappal, a traditional footwear style originating in India and popular in other South Asian countries, such as Pakistan.

Apart from the unconventional intersecting vegan leather uppers, the hybrid work shoe has an entire rubber lining and Asics’ signature GEL sole, designed to reduce impact and increase stability during movement.
