It appears that Asics has finally decided to give the beloved Asics Gel Kayano a brand new look as it has joined the EVO line. if you’re not familiar with the EVO line, it’s revamping a classic running shoe and giving it more of a modern age look and feel.
The Asics Gel Kayano EVO ditches the original materials in favor of a sleeker looking one-piece mesh upper that comes equipped with synthetic Asics stripe branding on the side panels. The tonal grey upper is then offset by implementing hits of neon lime seen on the bootie/tongue. Arriving not at select retailers, let us know if you like this revamped version of the Asics Gel Kayano Trainer.
Many people who consider themselves purist, are probably not going to like this “fusion” of the classic Asics Gel Kayano. I on the other hand, am all for change as long as it’s for the better and the original aesthetics of the shoe remain, which is this case, it does.
