For ASICS and its footwear department, much of the chips have gone into further adding to its collaborative portfolio for these early months of the year. Following partnerships with the likes of Ballaholic, Andersson Bell and COMME des GARÇONS SHIRT, the sportswear brand is now reconvening with the Vivienne Westwood team to cook up a three-pronged GEL-Kayano 27 LTX collection.

The design is a departure from the British punk/new wave sensibilities seen on the two parties’ last GEL-Kayano 26 capsule, and instead proffers up a much more sleek and futuristic theme. Its profile is established with a mid-like stature, and is highlighted by the semi-translucent TPU shell that is inspired by Vivienne Westwood‘s archival latex stockings. This layer is furnished with co-branded notations that are slapped on the lateral ankle, an ASICS embellishment that rests near the top of the throat, and contrasting design lines that see their way to the toe tips, down the heel and throat and around the ankle. Additionally, a zipper is positioned on the lateral wall to fasten the aforementioned TPU fabric, and the tiger stripes peek out from the inner bootie.

Down below, these fashion-forward kicks are bolstered with FLYTEFOAM cushioning to provide a cloud-like feel with every step.

Three colorways including a “Vapor/Black”, “Citrus/Black” and “Black/Black” are available now through Vivienne Westwood and ASICS for $240 USD each.

Elsewhere in the footwear world, ASICS recently unveiled its new GEL-Venture 180 sneaker.
