GEL-KAYANO 5 OG
Legendary for comfort with classic 90's aesthetic.
A striking lifestyle runner, the REIGNING CHAMP X ASICS GEL-KAYANO 5 OG shoe combines the retro look from its original 90s predecessor with tried-and-true ASICS technology. The GEL-KAYANO 5 OG silhouette’s sturdy midsole adds to the shoe’s chunky aesthetic, while GEL® technology, visible on the heel, optimises comfort and support. Nova Orange accents pay homage to Kyoto’s city streets, in addition to a co-branded footbed featuring the Japanese city’s coordinates.
This hybrid release from Reigning Champ and ASICS features tried-and-true performance wear alongside everyday lifestyle designs. Highlights include a lightweight running jacket, engineered tops and bottoms, and an elevated tracksuit—informed by Japanese elements, like traditional textile patterns and the weathered, wooden patina, found in Kyoto.
The Kyoto release also features the retro-inspired ASICSTIGER GEL-KAYANO 5 OG—a runner’s lifestyle shoe—and the innovative ASICS GEL-KAYANO 25 performance running shoe. Each style contains the latest in ASICS running technology with considered designs and custom colourways that pay homage to Kyoto’s traditional roots. View the ASICS collection here.
Steeped in tradition and craftsmanship, Kyoto provides an inspirational backdrop for this inaugural delivery. The colour palette pulls from the rich patina of traditional wooden temples and palaces, and showcases the various neutral tones achieved through the aging process of such structures. Highlighted by a small yet impactful hit of orange, the overall colour scheme pays homage to Kyoto’s traditional and urban characteristics.
