At ASICS, it seems there’s no such thing as sacred ground, a trait that oftentimes plays to their favor as they collaborate with imaginative and creative names the likes of Kiko Kostadinov, Vivienne Westwood, and soon Sean Wotherspoon. Though with much more on the horizon for their partnerships — and sadly a lot less from the Bulgarian golden boy come AW19 — it seems their inlines releases have not dropped the ball one bit, stilling planning alongside with their latest project, a surprising recreation to the beloved GEL-Kayano 5 form, putting to use the many notes their designers likely took. Colorful, chaotic, and ostensibly futuristic, the pair infuses this slight hiking influence, though sole units and suede constructions are still somewhat true to the lifestyle template from which it draws. These panels, which line the mudguards and whose various tones take slot at many an accent note, outfit atop a backdrop of white and black in sultry greens, mustard yellow, and ocean-esque blues. These make their way onto the lace unit as well, the feature most standout in its placement atop the rest of the silhouette as well as the rope laces that secure it down. Grab a detailed look at these her and find it hitting Asics.com and select retailers come January 1st.
