UPDATE: The highly-anticipated Sneakerwolf x ASICSTIGER GEL-KAYANO ‘Anarchy In The Edo Period’ has received an official re-release date of April 5. The Japanese-inspired pair will retail for £130 GBP (approx. $170 USD) online at asicstiger.com.
Inspired by punk subcultures, the GEL-Kayano features a white and purple mesh and leather upper combined with a standout flame graphic, translucent Ascis caging and subtle red hits nodding to the fiery pair. The shoe launches alongside a Sneakerwolf hotel event and exhibition titled “Tokyo Daigakui,” celebrating Japanese heritage, aesthetics and street culture, as well as a Hiroaki Shimono-designed capsule collection. The capsule collection features an array of heritage Japanese graphics, from tigers to Kanji and artwork inspired by “Fights and Fires are the Flowers of Edo.”
The “Tokyo Daigakui” exhibition is running from March 2 – 9 at Hotel Koe, Shibuya-ku.
