Last month, ASICS and Danish women's sneaker outlet Naked teamed up on a women’s exclusive capsule comprising two sneakers and a five-piece apparel and accessory collection. The brands say they were looking to express strength and persistence through the collab. Here, Highsnobiety takes a detailed look at the whole pack.
Both sneakers have a white/peacoat colorway with silver details to give the silhouettes a touch of eye-catching class. The GEL-Kayano 25’s upper is made of mesh and features co-branding on the tongue and sock liner, while the GEL-Kayano Trainer is made of mesh, suede, and leather, with co-branding on the heel, tongue, and sock liner.
The two ASICS models sit at different ends of a continuum. The GEL-Kayano Trainer is the OG and represents the past, while the GEL-Kayano 25 represents the present and how far the model has come.
The initial Naked-exclusive release date of September 21 was followed by a wider release on September 28 at select sneaker boutiques worldwide and ASICS direct. The GEL-Kayano Trainer retails for $140, while the GEL-Kayano 25 costs $180.
