ASICS Tiger continues their good start of 2017 with this incredible Gel Kayano Knit MT Pack, which is available now for purchase at selected retailers in the states and should be hitting sneaker stores overseas on January 21st.
The Gel Kayano receives a material makeover for 2017. ASICS Tiger has joined the Knit family, with their latest edition of the Gel Kayano, which are dropping in a full white and a black white colorway.
Both pairs of the pack feature a knitted pattern troughout the upper of the Gel Kayano, on top a thick white midsole with the usual ASICS branding. A stitched branding is also visible above the laces on the tongue.
There’s no further information on a worldwide release of this pack, but they should be arriving very soon at selected ASICS Tiger retailers all over the globe and of course it won’t be the last thing we’ll see of this dope silhouette this year…
Personally, I’ve always been a big fan of the Knit material and I really think it looks quite good on the Gel Kayano, but in my opinion ASICS has joined a little bit too late the party. Nike has been using the same material on the Flyknit Racer and Trainer the last couple of years and Adidas has taken over the market with their Primeknit NMD’s.
Even tough, I hope to see some interesting projects on this silhouette this year. The Gel Kayano itself, isn’t one of my favorite silhouettes, but I gotta admit, that the Knit upper makes them look indeed very nice on feet.
I’m even more exicted to see the upcoming Gel Kayano Trainer, which will come in a different colorways in the course of the year, but also crafted with knit.
Stay tuned for any updates regarding this very nice pack and silhouette, that I’m looking forward to have on feet and make some shots off. The ASICS Gel Kayano Knit MT is now available for purchase at the US retailer Sneaker Politics and priced at 150$ each.
The pack will be also available for the european customers from January 21st.
