A Closer Look at the Vivienne Westwood x ASICS GEL-Kayano 26 PackRelease: 28 September 2020
Earlier this month, we got our first-ever look at the black pair in the next Vivienne Westwood x ASICS collaboration! Using the GEL-Kayano 26 silhouette, the duo had completely transformed the running silhouette into a highly conceptual crep by adding a fishnet shroud over the entire upper! Of all the collaborations the English punk designer has done with ASICS, this may have to be the most experimental.
Now, two colourways of the design have emerged. The first is the sleek black-on-black that we recently got a peek at. It features contrasting silver hits along the midsole to accentuate the FlyteFoam branding that cushions the foot. The second pair arrives in mostly-white, with splashes of cream throughout to add some depth. Both renditions rock that avant-garde shroud that covers the whole front portion of the upper, with a toggle system helping to keep it secure. They also both have the classic Vivienne Westwood Orb logo behind the iconic ASICS heel counter. From what we can see, there are no laces present.
Both the black and white pairs of the Vivienne Westwood x ASICS GEL-Kayano 26 pack will be releasing at select retailers like Sneakersnstuff and Naked on September 28.
