8 best asics gel kayano 5 kicks buy ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 GmbH sneakers
SlamJam Socialism

Since ASICS re-released its 1999 GEL-KAYANO 5 last November, there’s been no shortage of dope takes on the iconic silhouette. In fact, there have been so many inspired takes on it that keeping track and choosing the right pair has become increasingly difficult.

The resounding success of the reimagined, Toshikazu Kayano-designed GEL-KAYANO is due, in part, to the integration of its visible technology and function as a superior running shoe. ASICS has retained the KAYANO 5’s status as a beloved option for runners and sneakerheads alike by remaining true to its original design. The sneakers feature a mesh upper with synthetic leather and suede overlays, embroidered branding at the heel and visible GEL technology.

And if you’re late to the party, fear not, as Italian retailer, Slam Jam Socialism, has a well-stocked selection of ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 silhouettes for you to chose from, curated by our very own commerce content curator, Rhianna Matthews.

Since we first spotted them on the Paris Fashion Week FW19 runway, GmbH’s take on the silhouette has helped cement the design as a key contender for summer. In addition to this, there are a selection of mainline picks if you wanted to keep things a little more low-key.

So, without further ado, scroll through our favorite ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 sneakers available to buy right now below.
