Reigning Champ x Asics Gel Kayano 5 OG "Kyoto Edition"

by Henrik Buzzi


Introducing the latest collaboration between Reigning Champ and ASICS that combines decades of manufacturing experience with the latest in running technology to achieve a new, global standard in modern athletic wear. Spanning multiple continents, the collaborative project fuses run and travel, drawing inspiration from Kyoto, Vancouver, Paris and, finally, Tokyo in the run-up to the 2020 Olympic Games.

The Reigning Champ x ASICS Kyoto Edition is the first of four releases and offers a considered collection designed with purpose and built without compromise. Steeped in tradition and craftsmanship, the culture-rich city of Kyoto, Japan provides the backdrop for tried-and-true performance products alongside a collection of everyday athletic wear. The design cues from this inaugural release have been informed by textile patterns and the weathered, wooden patina found throughout Kyoto. Releasing June 15 at selected retailers.
