JJJJound — a design agency-turned-lifestyle brand — has earned respect from the streetwear and sneakers audience for its minimal-yet-elevated approach to producing quality products. Sneaker collaborations have swiftly become an area that the Montreal-based entity thrives in most, and after teasing a clean olive and black New Balance 990v3, it’s now shining a light on its upcoming GEL-KAYANO 14 capsule with ASICS.

This marks the first time that JJJJound has teamed up with the Japanese sportswear company, and together the duo has fashioned a duo of neutral-heavy colorways. There are certain similarities between the two such as the white mesh underlays and metallic silver overlays. Additionally, the lateral heels have been remixed with “JJJound” branding, only it’s written in the silhouette’s signature font. On the first pair, the tiger stripes are filled in with black and the midsole units are executed with a creamy exterior. Its release sibling takes a brighter approach and features bright white ASICS logos and midsoles. Insoles on each pair split between an ASICS hit on the left shoe and a JJJJound spell out on the right.

No release info has been announced by either party just yet, but you can likely expect these to hit the market in the coming months.

In other news, ASICS recently unveiled its METASPEED EDGE+ and METASPEED SKY+ models.
