ASICS X Vivienne Westwood GEL-KAYANO 26 - Black
The new ASICS X VIVIENNE WESTWOOD GEL-KAYANO™ 26 model is inspired by the original sack shoes first shown in the Westwood & (Malcolm) McLaren Autumn/Winter 1982- 83 Nostalgia of Mud collection - featuring the Buffalo Girls. The design has been given a futuristic and sporty spin - using a semi-transparent mesh cover, which simultaneously conceals and reveals the shoes underneath.
The precision-adjusted professional performance soles are retained, including full-length FLYTEFOAM™ Propel midsole combined with rearfoot GEL™ technology and FLYTEFOAM™ wedge, GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC™ system, forefoot twist GEL™ technology, and the I.G.S™ (Impact Guidance System) composed of DYNAMIC DUOMAX™ support system. The original double-layer engineering mesh upper is replaced by a complete piece of Ripstop anti-tear nylon, and the lace system is also simplified to an elastic webbing structure for easier wear. The pull and draw mesh covering the upper, while paying tribute to Westwood's iconic sack shoes, highlights the ASICS logo with mesh and straps delivering a sense of modern technology. Westwood’s signature Orb Saturn logo is embedded in the METACLUTCH™ external heel counter, a finishing touch in combination with heel reflective shields at rear.
Please note that the ASICS X Vivienne Westwood range is in US Men's Sizing.
