The all new, limited edition GEL-KENUN SHINKAI. Inspired by the clouds above and sea below.
Mita Sneakers - one of the most renowned sneaker shops in Tokyo and designer of sought after collaborations - has joining forces for the first time with ASICS performance to bring you the special edition GEL-KENUN SHINKAI.
The GEL-KENUN SHINKAI is inspired by two Japanese words: Kenun, meaning Cirrus - the highest cloud in the sky - and Shinkai, meaning deep sea. The trainer takes design cues from the mighty Megalodon shark and features “Deep Sea Attack” gradation colour, which captures the anticipation of a gigantic creature lurking in the depth, poising for the attack. A sharkskin design mesh upper, dark blue sublimated print and pale white midsole emulate the sleek, streamlined curves of its body.
Complete with a shark bitten ASICS stripe design trademark, reflective heel tape, glow-in-the-dark sprayed midsole and blue Pad GEL technology, the GEL-KENUN SHINKAI transfers the power, speed and good looks of the Megalodon to your fitness performance.
With our GEL technology for rear-foot cushioning and a streamlined upper, your new go-to kicks are as good to your feet as they are for your image.

ASICS GEL Technology for rear foot cushioning
Solyte® Midsole Material
A lighter weight midsole compound than ASICS' standard EVA and SpEVA®. Also features enhanced cushioning and durability.
Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.)
ASICS® design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
Rearfoot GEL® Cushioning System
Attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance.
A new one-layer engineered mesh minimises rubbing between the foot and the upper to create a super snug, glove-like fitting experience. A unique combination of closed and open weave patterns optimises flexibility and breathability.
EVA sockliner moulded to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
The use of seamless materials reduces the potential for irritation and friction caused by traditional stitches and seams.
Solid Rubber outsole
Provides enhanced durability and traction.
