Editor’s Notes: ASICS and Awake NY’s collaborative GEL-Kayano 5 360 is one of the most popular releases of the year thus far, bringing the silhouette to the forefront of ASICS’ lifestyle catalog. Now the Japanese running brand has teamed up with GORE to weatherproof the model and offer it up in two subtle colorways that would almost be more suitable to Spring than the Fall. With the weatherproofing, however, you’ll be able to rock them all year round.
Both colorways are now exclusively available at Sneakersnstuff and Notre, and will drop globally on October 26.
On this week’s episode of The Dropcast, we are joined by Treis Hill and Rob Cristofaro, partners-in-crime at Alife, who are on to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the New York City-based lifestyle, street, and skatewear brand.
