ASICS is pleased to announce the launch of the Awake NY x ASICS GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER 21, collaboration inspired by the vibrancy of Miami. For Awake NY Founder and Creative Director Angelo Baque, Miami has always served as an oasis – a quick flight from New York City, the beach backdrop consistently offered Baque solace from the grind of the concrete jungle.
The GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER 21 shoe combines archived aesthetics with performance capability. Inspired by the heritage of the GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER, this hybrid version preserves the MONO-SOCK™ design from the 90s running shoe and also incorporates the same tooling from 2014’s GEL-KAYANO® 21 shoe, featuring GEL® technology cushioning in the heel and forefoot to evolve the retro runner with performance functionality.
The design of the Awake NY x ASICS GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER 21 was inspired by the vibrancy of Miami. The sneakers teal colourway is a direct nod to the lively hues seen in Miami architecture, while the grey/silver colourway serves as a neutral option for everyday wear.
The Awake NY x ASICS GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER 21 releases this Friday, 10th of December via ASICS.COM, Above The Clouds and Highs and Lows. Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter to keep up to date. For other ASICS features, click HERE.
