Often the best things are born from a collision of two encircling worlds, and this is exactly the case for the unlikely collaboration between Japanese sneaker stalwarts ASICS and British punk powerhouse Vivienne Westwood. Marking their second of 2021 and fifth overall, the brands have now launched their latest drop, and it’s as explosive and innovative as could be imagined.
Available in two colourways – white with flashes of fuchsia and muted blues, and an earthy ox brown with orange accents – the ASICS x VIVIENNE WESTWOOD GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE sneakers are playfully imbued with the signature Westwood DIY personality and leading ASICS functionality. So expect striking deconstructed elements, with bonded detailing, mesh overlay and Insta-buzzy hiking laces, amidst utilitarian ripstop fabric which is traditionally used by the military for its strength and durability.
We’ll take one in every colour, please.
The limited model ASICS X VIVIENNE WESTWOOD GEL-KAYANO™ 27 DE are available in 2 colour ways – lichen green/ ox brown and white/ lichen rock and will be available from limited global ASICS & Vivienne Westwood stores and online from 1st May 2021 priced at $240/ RMB1690/ £220/ €240.
