ASICS goes as far East as Malaysia to serve up dinner, where the brand cooks up their newest GEL-Kayano 5. With help from retailer Hundred% and SneakerLAH, Malaysia’s largest sneaker event, the ASICS brand aims to unite the globe using elements of a national meal that unites the country.
The ASICS GEL-Kayano 5 “Nasi Lemak” decorates the sneaker as inspired by the traditional food dish of Malaysia. A majority of the sneaker’s base consists of yellow, as inspired by the meal’s use of eggs, and red to illustrate the color of chilis used. Moreover, an off-white represents the meal’s rice base. Green-branded hits throughout garnish the kicks to portray vegetation within the meal itself while a gum bottom creates the connection from sneaker to other ingredients of nuts and anchovies. And limited to only 500 pairs releasing, the sneakers will connect those around the world retailing for $143.
Check out images below of ASICS’ newest GEL-Kayano 5 “Nasi Lemak” and be sure to grab a serving of your own when the kicks drop October 5th exclusively at SneakerLAH 2019.
