Footpatrol x ASICS Tiger Gel Kayano “Storm”.

by Henrik Buzzi

Following the success of Footpatrol’s first Gel Kayano collaboration with ASICS Tiger in 2014, Footpatrol is back again for Spring '15 with another rendition of the Gel Kayano Trainer entitled the 'Storm'. First released in 1993 the ASICS Tiger Gel Kayano Trainer, named for its designer was seen as a shoe that started one of the most successful lines in the history of running shoes. Unlike Footpatrol first Gel Kayano Trainer they wanted to make the Storm stand out, taking our inspiration from vintage outdoor rain jackets which were seen in bright and bold colour schemes.  Keeping the same aesthetics as their first Gel Kayano with using premium & luxurious materials, Footpatrol wanted to keep the technical features of the sneaker and use the durable water resistant suede as the underlays. The Footpatrol x ASICS Tiger Gel Kayano “Storm” is due to release at Footpatrol on Saturday 11th April.
