Brands: GmbH x ASICS
Model: GEL-Kayano 5
Key Features: An imposing midsole with GEL cushioning, mesh and synthetic uppers, and reflective accents.
Release Date: 16 November
Buy: ASICS Tiger
Editor’s Notes: Sportswear has always been a big part of GmbH's MO, evidenced by the label's Paris Fashion Week catwalk show in which models were spotted in an old-school ASICS running silhouette.
A bit of digging shows that the sneaker is essentially a carbon copy of a fifth-generation ASICS GEL-Kayano, which was released way back in 1999. Arriving in a white/royal blue colorway with additional gray and gold accents, the model syncs well with the current "dadcore" trend and can be placed alongside other comeback creps such as the Nike Air Monarch and New Balance 990. Peep the original below.
Details regarding a potential collaboration between the two brands are currently thin on the ground. Stay posted for further information as it breaks.
