Asics’ classic GEL-Kayano 14 runner has made a surprising reappearance in the brand’s lineup this year, shortly following a colorful update from recent Asics designer Kiko Kostadinov. Now, the GK-14 is back in new colorways this week.

The Asics GEL-Kayano 14 was first introduced in 2008, then simply the next stepping stone in a still ongoing line of GEL-Kayano running shoes. The franchise, originally conceived in the 1990s to further cushioning technology over long distances, had been a massive success for Asics thus far, and has continued to maintain its position as the leading performance sneaker from the Japanese brand until this day. Now, however, the GEL-Kayano 14 is more a retro artifact than a performance runner, a transition that Asics has been celebrating with new colorways of the classic shoe intended for lifestyle wear. This week, the GK-14 emerged in two new in-line colors, coating the silhouette in tonal shades of either “Mako Blue” or “Piedmont Grey”, both signature color schemes from the brand. 


Asics’ latest colorways of the retro GEL-Kayano 14 runner release of the GEL-Kayano 14 from 2008 has been scheduled to drop later this month, on December 14th, 2020. Launching in two colorways for each for both men and women, pairs will be available directly from Asics with a price tag of just $140.
