UB1-S GEL - KAYANO 14 - Classic Red / Asics Blue
ASICS SportStyle reimagines the GEL-KAYANOTM14 model as a lifestyle shoe, which was first released in 2008 as a running shoe. The GEL-KAYANOTM14 model represented a special moment within ASICS’ history in 2008, as the first silhouette in the series to be designed by someone other than its creator Toshikazu Kayano.
Instead of Kayano, Hidenori Yamashita stepped in to design the GEL-KAYANOTM14 model. Yamashita explains how the design language was focused around the idea of ‘Flash’ – “The word I chose as inspiration for the GEL- KAYANO 14 is the idea of “Flash”, “Flash” for me references the burst of action where the runner lands at the heel and pushes away at the toes. Whether it’s the colour, the lines, the materials,
the silhouette or the texture – all aspects of the GEL-KAYANOTM14 are designed with that idea of “flash” in mind.” The re-introduced model sports the same nostalgic, 2000’s aesthetic that paved the way for the collection on its initial release
12 years ago. The midsole tooling with GELTM technology cushioning is mirrored to the re-imagined model, keeping the original model’s performance capabilities for the wearers. At the same time, material and fit improvements are made on the upper,
while retaining its layered synthetic leather and mesh construction from 2008.
