ASICS Bring Back the GEL-Kayano 5
ASICS are set to follow up their 'Trico' collaboration with mita sneakers by welcoming back an old design from the archives: the GEL-Kayano 5. Returning in celebration of the original silhouette's 20-year anniversary, the 1998 design — the fifth entry in the cross-training line originally designed by Toshikazu Kayano — retains its OG look and couples the likes of DUOMAX tech with a lightweight mesh and leather upper. Like the OG, these come in blue and white with 3M reflectivity to go with black/yellow accents throughout.
The 20-year-old design is set to return to retailers like ,Caliroots on November 17.
