Asics is known for a lot of things, basketball sneakers is not one of them. Although they have created basketball models in the past, their bread and butter is definitely runner/performance models.

Looking to switch things up a bit, Asics is taking inspiration from their archives and will release this new basketball shoe said to be an upgraded version of the Asics Fabre Point Getter (1983). Here’s a first look at the Asics Gel PTG MT.

The Asics Gel PTG MT opts to keep the original Fabre Point Getter design. The mid-cut model comes with a leather upper paired up with suede details and a perforated toe box. Additional features include the woven Asics tongue label, fuzeGel heel wedge (midsole), an OrthoLite innersole and a rubber outsole. Albeit it’s an upgraded version of the Fabre Point Getter, the Asics Gel PTG MT still very much has a vintage look to it. No U.S. release date yet, but expect them to drop sometime this month.
