UPDATE: This Porter x ASICS GEL-Kayano has seen a release throughout Asia, and now it's coming to Europe! Scottish retailer Hanon have just taken some excellent pics of what they have on hand to entice you to get them on-foot. They haven't dished out a solid release date for the colab just yet, but one won't be far away.
UPDATE: If you didn't get the chance to bag your own pair of the Porter x ASICS GEL-Kayano Trainers when they landed earlier this month, then we've got good news – March 11 will see a wider global release at select stockists. Hit up Invincible on the day to secure a pair for yourself.
Luggage lords of Japan, Yoshida & Company, have just revealed their first ever collaboration with ASICS. The GEL-Kayano Trainer has been built up in classic Porter colours. The base of the shoe – featuring an upper of nylon ‘Tanker’ fabric and suede – has been soaked in black, while hints of orange are used sparingly for the lining and accents. You can thread them with round laces and a toggle, like a drawstring bag, or keep it traditional with the alternative flat laces. Supported with a black heel cage and positioned atop a black midsole, this is one killer colab that you won’t want to miss.
