ASICSTIGER GEL KAYANO TRAINER
- June 25, 2019
With a theme of Anarchy in the Edo Period, the shoe tells the story of rebellion in 18th century Edo Period Japan. Edo Period commoners were not allowed to experience luxury.
Wearing showy, shiny materials or royal colors like purple, red, and gold was prohibited, while the Shogunate’s sumptuary laws prescribed that fabrics could be made only of cotton. The model’s design expresses rejection of these restrictions.
The fire graphic represents the fires evoked in the expression fires and fistfights are the flowers of Edo. The circle A written in sneakerwolf’s Kanji-Graphy script and artwork drawn with ASICS and used in displays at ASICSTIGER’s New York outlet adorn the surfaces of the shoe.
ASICSTIGER GEL-KAYANO TRAINER "ANARCHY IN THE EDO PERIOD" is now available at 24Kilates, Atmos, Beams, Carnival and SEEK Embassy
