Total black, as a style, is a commitment. To incorporate any color whatsoever is a delicate task. A heavy hand will take the look out of the realm of all-black and ruin the effect. Tokyo’s Atmos have wisely chosen an accent color that doesn’t need an overbearing presence to make a major impression, metallic gold.

The leather/suede/mesh upper keeps the gold confined to subtle accents: behind the signature Asics tiger stripes, on the heel tab, and the textual branding. The shoe’s speckled midsole makes use of the gold more prominently. The overall effect of the shoe is a gold interior, hidden behind a shell of jet.

Atmos actually used this colorway, to widespread acclaim, on a Gel Lyte III, in 2011. Apparently, it actually is a good idea to stock up on gold.
