Model: GEL-Kayano 26
Key Features: Westwood’s latest ASICS project has a distinct custom feel to it, thanks to the adjustable netting added as a shroud over the knit upper. If you’re going for a run or are wearing shorts without pockets, the netting looks to make a reliable stash spot.
Editor’s Notes: After teaming up with ASICS on a trio of artwork-inspired sneakers, Vivienne Westwood has produced yet another eye-catching collaboration with the Japanese sportswear brand. This time, Westwood tones things down in terms of the color of her project, opting for a triple black GEL-Kayano 26, while adding what looks to be an adjustable netting to the clean upper. The netting gives the project a custom vibe and reminds slightly of Nicole Mclaughlin’s highly-popular conceptual creations.
The Vivienne Westwood x ASICS GEL-Kayano 26 will be released on September 28.
