ASICS UB1-S GEL-KAYANO 14
ASICS and Kiko Kostadinov announce a new multi-season partnerships.
Kiko Kostadinov and ASICS began their relationship with the release of the GEL-BURZ 1 in the spring of 2018, the first designer-ledcollaboration in the 70-year history of the ASICS brand.
This partnership will now evolve into a multi-yearinitiative that will see the Kiko Kostadinov team working in tandem with ASICS designers, advising and curating on a new line within ASICS SportStyle – with his first release, The UB1-S GEL-KAYANO 14.
The late 2000s aesthetic of the UBS-1 GEL-KAYANO® 14 sneaker explores the concept of ""Retro Futurism"" and its duality between archived fashion silhouettes and Japanese workwear. We kept the original GEL-KAYANO® 14 running shoe aesthetic intact on the upper but modified its materials with synthetic leather overlays and elongated pull tabs on the tongue. Built with GEL® technology cushioning and a TRUSSTIC™ support unit, this shoe's tooling preserves its traditional shape while evolving its functionality for today.
