I got up to this morning to a very engaging picture of the Asics Gel Kayano Trainer Knit Reflective Pack on FB. The collection will include two separate pairs wrapped up in the slihouette of the classic Asics Gel Kayano.
The Kayano was originally introduced in 1993 by designer Toshikazu Kayano ( the shoes were named after him). Toshikazu was inspired by the stag beetle, synonymous with toughness and tenacity. The past 5 years have seen the emergence of the knit materials and most sneaker brands are revamping their classic models with this new technology, and the gel kayano won’t be an exception.

The shoes feature a silver and white color combination with 3M reflective details; they feature a stretchy knit upper with a sock like construction around the ankle ( somebody screams Adidas Ultra boost LOL). The entire sneakers is reinforced by a protective cage and hard plastic on the panels and heel. Asics branding is also intertwined with the panel overlays, and more logos can be spotted on the tongue. They are also equipped with the Gel midsole which delivers a plush like cushioning to the foot.

The silver and black colorway is definitely on my radar.
