Who would have thought that a drawing that Toshikazu Kayano did on a dinner napkin back in 1992 would transpire into the Asics GEL-Kayano Trainer in 1993? Back then it was considered the “cutting-edge” runner sneaker of the time. More than 10 years later the runner returns to regain that title. This time around, Asics is hooking up this classic runner with a modern colorway. Dubbed as the “Grape”, the shoe is constructed in leather, mesh and plastic in White, Black, Purple and Teal.
This sneaker is available now at select Asics retailers including Politics.
