Asics Gel Kayano
The Asics Gel Kayano shoes are designed for long-distance runners. The elasticity and support of the sole helps prevent chafing and pain. These running shoes are ideal for running both on the treadmill and on the road. They are created with an ultra-lightweight mesh upper material that makes these running shoes lightweight and breathable.

In 2008 the Asics Gel Kayano 14 running silhouette was first launched and was a big hit with the running community due to its innovative technology and comfort. Despite this, the shoe was discontinued as soon as another Asics model was launched as a replacement.
In addition these shoes were the first model in the KAYANO series designed by a different creator than Roshukazu Kayano, instead it was Hidenori Yamashita to design the iconic silhouette.
In 2020 Asics re-released the Gel-Kayano 14 with the nostalgic trainer trend following the 2000's aesthetic with a midsole with GEL cushioning technology while maintaining the capabilities of the original model.
This model reached the peak of its popularity with Kiko Kostadinov's collaboration with Asics to launch the Gel-Kayano 14 who has become a permanent advisor to the silhouette. In addition to this collaboration there are others with Vivienne Westwood, JJJJound, Ice Studios and Field Trip Recordings, Zack Bia's record label.
