Each new ASICS silhouette is a culmination of the brand’s expertise and evolution of performance running shoes, reimagined as dynamic and distinctive models for a modern era. The all-new GEL-KAYANO™ 14 Suede is no different. Digging through the style’s expansive archives (there’s 28 models of this shoe), it’s evident that this version of the running model harkens back to its late 2000s aesthetic as a nod to the storied GEL-KAYANO™ series. This iteration finds a striking balance between eye-catching flashiness and a retro feel, while picking up a layered suede and mesh construction.
The high-performance runner from the ’00s doesn’t miss a beat, reinvented with a lifestyle essence and delivered in metallic silver colorway, opting for a more monochromatic color palette to allow for the materials to be the primary focus. The flares on the silver surfer-esque reflective material offer a rare moment of serendipity for imaginative design and real life elemental effects of utility. The result is a futuristic performance shoe that leaves little to be desired. Sleek and street-worthy, the latest silhouettes sport a re-engineered new upper with suede materials, a new fit and advanced technology to elevate the running techniques of the sneaker — all while giving it a versatile edge unlike ever before. It also features ASICS’ signature GEL™ technology, which brings out the mix of gray colors on the upper with tonal branded hits appearing on both the lateral heel and the tongue.
The all-new GEL-KAYANO™ 14 Suede is available now on the brand’s website.
