The Extra Butter x ASICS GEL-Kayano 5 is a Fighter Jet
Release: 16 December 2020

Extra Butter are ending the year with a big bang, the New York–based label launching a ‘Tomcat’ capsule complete with Alpha Industries bombers, G-Shock watches and the highlight: a militarised ,ASICS GEL-Kayano 5.

Thematically orbiting fighter jets and military tech, the GEL-Kayano 5 is composed in a stealthy, militant Blue Steel colourway. Bolstering the tongue with extra padding and technical notations, the upper level of the silhouette is intended to reflect the aesthetic of a cockpit. The laces are also modified, creating the impression of tightly packed military gear. Built with ballistic nylon and leather, the silhouette’s extensive notations (‘Hold On’, ‘Jet Fuel Only’, and ‘Secure Prior to Flight’) throughout extend the militant vernacular.

The entire Extra Butter ‘Tomcat’ collection will debut on December 16. The GEL-Kayano 5 is priced at $190.
