Color name: Cool Grey / Pure Silver
In 1993, Asics celebrated the launch of the Gel Kayano series, christened with the name of its designer Toshikazu Kayano. This oriented to his own needs and thus designed a shoe that could be used both for jogging and indoor training. In 2020, Asics therefore already launched the 27th version!
With the Gel-Kayano 13, Toshikazu Kayano ended his work on the Gel-Kayano series and handed over the responsibility to new designers. Kayano couldn't imagine his shoes off the running track at the time, yet he's flattered that the retros of his running shoe line have now firmly established themselves in the lifestyle segment. Collaborations with sneaker stores and streetwear brands also enjoy great popularity.
Angelo Baque already collaborated with Asics with his own brand Awake NY. After two colorways on the GEL-Kayano 5 360 and a GEL-Preleus, it's now the turn of the GEL-Kayano Trainer 21. The upper is made of suede as well as a coarse mesh in various shades of gray - these harmonize perfectly on the runner. Color accents are set by 2 suede panels on the heel in red and blue. A tonal branding on the mudguard shows that this is the third collabo between Asics and Awake NY.

About Asics

Whoever thinks of high-quality running shoes in the 21st century usually automatically has the ASICS brand in mind. But ASICS has not just been around since yesterday.

Asics Sneakers – Performance and Quality

The history of the brand already begins in 1949. 31-year-old Salaryman Kihachiro Onitsuka was convinced that sports could make a positive contribution to the development of young people in his hometown of Kōbe. Based on this incentive, he founded the company ONITSUKA TIGER and began producing high-quality sneakers. 

Since 1977, the brand has borne the name ASICS. The name is an acronym and stands for the Latin proverb "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano" - in English: "A healthy mind in a healthy body". A proverb that still determines ASICS' company policy today. 

From the sports sector to streetwear

The development of the GEL damping system, which was launched in 1986 and still forms the basis for all new ASICS running shoes, has contributed significantly to the success of the brand. In the sneaker scene, the most popular models are the GEL-Lyte III and the GEL-Saga. Designer Ronnie Fieg and stores Patta Amsterdam and Atmos Tokyo also immortalized themselves on these two silhouettes. 

The GEL-Kayano first came out in 1993 and it perfectly reflects the style of the 90s & 2000s with its eye-catching details and chunky sole. Since its first release, the GEL-Kayano has undergone facelifts every year, so fans of the shoe can regularly look forward to new interpretations of the iconic silhouette. 

The work behind the new Kayano models takes place behind the doors of the ASICS headquarters in Kōbe, the home to one of the most advanced running research centers in the world.
