About the Collection

Inspired by the colorful hues seen throughout the architecture, coupled with the contrast of the blue waters of Miami Beach against the white sand have always been a welcome view for any New Yorker who’s used to seeing concrete day in and day out.

The GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER 21 shoe combines archived aesthetics with performance capability. Inspired by the heritage of the GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER, this hybrid version preserves the MONO-SOCK™ design from the 90s running shoe and also incorporates the same tooling from 2014's GEL-KAYANO® 21 shoe, featuring GEL® technology cushioning in the heel and forefoot to evolve the retro runner with performance functionality.

The design of the Awake NY x ASICS GEL-KAYANO® TRAINER 21 was inspired by the vibrancy of Miami. The shoe’s grey/silver colorway serves as a neutral option for everyday wear.
