Release Date: sneakerwolf x Asics Gel Kayano Trainer


Japanese artist sneakerwolf teams up with Asics to release a special iteration of the Asics Gel Kayano Trainer alongside pieces of apparel inspired by the Edo period in Japanese history.

The Edo period is a period between 1603 and 1868, when Japan was under the rule of the Tokugawa shogunate. The shogunate forbid ordinary people to experience luxury in any way. This included wearing glossy materials and certain colors. The Japanese artist takes inspiration from that “luxury banning order” to create a sneaker that goes against the rule of the shogunate, using noble purple, red, and gold colors throughout the shoe. The shoe itself represents the spirit of “anarchy in the Edo period.”

Details on the shoe include the Black neoprene base with Purple, Red, and Yellow flame graphics. White leather overlays and Black laces are also in play. Below you will find a White sole with hits of Purple and Red to match the aesthetics of the upper.

The sneakerwolf x Asics Gel Kayano Trainer drop at sneakerwolf’s own online store on March 14th but a wider release will take place on March 16th. Retailing for 16,000 YEN (apprximately $145), find them in-store at mita sneakers and Kickslab.
