The Asics Gel XXL II Hi was designed for top level competitive players seeking lightweight and added cushioning in a hightop basketball shoe. Features include a synthetic nubuck or full grain leather upper with ballistic mesh, padded ankle collar and adjustable ankle strap, solid rubber outsole in a quarter capsule with a compression molded EVA midsole, Gel cushioning and visible Hex Gel cushion in the refract with P-Gel cushion in the forefoot for shock absorption. Collectors with big feet will be happy to know they were available up to size 18. Overall they looked like they originally started off as a wrestling shoe and ultimately evolved into a basketball shoe. Thats not necessarily bad depending on who you ask but something that worth adding to your Asics collection. Check them out below!
