Models like the GEL-LYTE III or GEL-SAGA usually take the cake when it comes to the most popular ASICS sneakers. But every now and then, the Japanese athletic brand unleashes another silhouette from their vast archives that gains the hearts of sneakerheads. With the release of the ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 OG in late 2018, we saw an event like that yet again.
Launched in 1993, the GEL-KAYANO line features 25 different models by now. The shoes are go-to choices for runners and fully commit to their performance origin. But then again, performance sneakers made their way into the sneaker rotations of tastemakers around the globe by now. And of course the GEL-KAYANO is no exception here.
The release of several classic OG colorways could have already been enough to gain serious momentum for the KAYANO 5 and its 360 upgrade. But in addition, we saw joint projects with style trailblazers like Ronnie Fieg, Vivienne Westwood or Berlin fashion label GmbH just to name a few. Store collabs with the likes of Sneakerwolf and HBX then complete the picture. We browsed through IG for a couple of on-foot shots that show the GEL-KAYANO 5 in its versatile beauty. Check out some of our favorite pics below.
