Asics dug into its archive in 2018 to revive the GEL-Kayano 5 OG, and for 2019 the Japanese imprint gives the beloved classic a sleek update, dubbed the 5.1.

The streamlined update features a sock-like construction, in contrast to the silhouette’s signature chunkiness. With reduced collar padding, a simplified sole unit and a modern design throughout, the 5.1 stands as a homage to the classic for those looking for something more low-profile.

A mixture of leather and synthetic overlays paired with 3M accents and an exposed red GEL unit stays true to the OG, whereas the mesh-knit across the side and along the tongue and vamp provides the Kayano 5.1 with a clean construction. Priced at $120 USD, you can pick up the updated Asics GEL-Kayano 5.1 at Asics in-store and online, and at select retailers worldwide.

In other footwear news, Virgil Abloh teased the new Off-White™ 3.0 “Off-Court Lows”.
