‘Pink Salt’ Seasons the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14Release: 23 April 2021
Despite releasing back in 2008, the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 design has aged rather well. Formerly a flagship of the ASICS running range, the recent ‘retro’ of the GEL-Kayano 14 now sits within the Sportstyle category, which was marked by the return of its OG colourways. This also means it now readily accepts casual-oriented palettes, such as this pretty pink number.
The GEL-Kayano has a healthy amount of GEL cushioning technology embedded throughout its foam midsole, visibly appearing in the heel and forefoot. This colourway doesn’t feature a contrast GEL colour but instead opts for tonal milky shades to match up to the creamy midsole. There's plenty of ‘Pink Salt’ sprinkled atop the uppers, which are rendered in very lifestyle-friendly suede. Remember, the GEL-Kayano 14 is no longer intended to be used as performance running shoe – though it could probably still be up to the job for less intensive jogs. Underneath these pink overlays is a very breathable cream-coloured mesh base, because ventilation is always important, no matter the situation. Finishing touches include complementary pink outsole sections and a matching shaded external arch bridge.
The ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 ‘Pink Salt’ is available now directly from ASICS and various retailers worldwide.
