New Images! Field Trip x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14
News on this release was first published July 27, 2022.
Update July 29, 2022: Campaign imagery for the upcoming Field Trip x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 has surfaced! This colab will likely be a limited release, but stay tuned for upcoming details.
Zack Bia's Field Trip Records is mostly known as the home of Gen Z rappers like SSGKobe and Yeat, but now they're ready to make waves in the sneaker space by collaborating with ASICS on a special GEL-Kayano 14. Revealed by an Instagram Stories post from i-D's Alastair McKimm, the Field Trip Records x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 offers a crisp and clean look that opts for subtle branding, a la JJJJound's forthcoming GEL-Kayano 14 colab.
The toebox and forefoot are done up in white and silver, while the heel is dressed in black suede. The contrast between the dark, lifestyle-geared heel and the light, performance-reminicent forefoot is so stark that it's almost jarring, so the 'aged' midsoles provide a middle ground to its yin and yang. Special branding is kept to a minimum, with a red Field Trip Recordings hit debossed on the heel where a GEL-Kayano 14 logo would usually sit.
At the time of writing, we have yet to receive any official information on this release. It may be a friends-and-family style created specifically for those in the Field Trip orbit, or it could hit shelves later this year. Either way it goes, we'll be sure to keep you updated!
