Asics’ Gel Kayano 5 runner is back in force. After making a grand return to the brand’s arsenal this year, the sleek runner has taken on numerous collaborative projects, including a colorful Summertime look courtesy of Ronnie Fieg releasing soon.
Asics’ hot streak of impressive collaborations continues this month, as fans are still getting their hands on projects from the likes of Awake NY and Reigning Champ. However, this week feels a little special, as Ronnie Fieg announced his return to the brand to deliver his unique take on the retro Gel Kayano 5, Asics Tiger’s current hottest old school runner.
First reintroduced earlier this Summer, this is the Asics Gel Kayano 5 first reappearance since its original debut back in 1999. Since then, the vintage runner has become somewhat of a cult hit, thanks to its chunky yet sleek look and a wide variety of materials involved. So far this year, the Kayano 5 has made its round amongst Asics’ numerous collaborative partners, though this weeks announcement was something special. Soon, Ronnie Fieg will be releasing his own take on the retro runner.
Teased via a beautiful picture of the shoes buried in the sand, the latest Gel Kayano 5 project does not disappoint. Playing off of Spring and Summer colors, the shoe’s many layers are prominently covered in white, with shades of yellow, red and a blue-green hue mixed in throughout. Given Ronnie’s involvement with the process, we are likely to see these release alongside a sea of matching apparel, possibly as a part of Kith’s Monday program.
Ronnie Fieg’s latest collaboration with Asics, the colorful Gel Kayano 5, has not yet been announced for release, though we can expect them to arrive at Kith stores shortly. Ronnie’s take on the iconic Asics Tiger silhouette will likely retail somewhere in the $140 range.
