Model: GEL-Kayano 14
Editor’s Notes: These may look like another pair of regular white and silver ASICS GEL-Kayano's, but they're not — it's actually a JJJJound collab.
After dropping BAPE STAs, Danner boots, New Balance 990v3 kicks (with another on the way), and Reebok Club C sneakers, the Montreal-based studio is ready to tackle its first collab with ASICS by making the most ASICS-y ASICS sneakers.
I say that because JJJJound's ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 in the white/silver/cream color scheme reminds me of the model's previous White/Silver/Red colorway, with JJJJound simply replacing the red GEL midsole with its own creamy spin.
There's also a silver/black colorway in the offering mix for JJJJound's first ASICS drop, with both options following the brand's signature clean-cut and simplistic design ethos.
Speaking of JJJJound's noise-free vibe, the collaborative sneakers offer an extremely quiet branding from JJJJound's end, with the studio's logo stamping the heel and insoles in a way that if you blinked, you'd miss them.
Honestly, if you took away JJJJound's logo, we'd have another general release white/silver ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 on our hands. But, at the same time, you can't expect much from the subtle flex mavens at JJJJound.
Whether you see the JJJJound x ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 as lazy or fire, you can count on the collaborative sneakers flying off digital shelves during its reported July release.
