Very Vintage Vibes Feature on the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 “Pre-Worn”

Over the past couple of years, every single brand out there has taken on the pre-worn trend to some degree or another. New Balance once covered its 2002R with scuffs, while Nike prefers to add pre-yellowed accents to their sneakers to make them look like something straight from the archives. However, with the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 “Pre-Worn,” the Japanese sportswear company has taken this archival aesthetic to the next level – and here’s what you need to know.

Fully embracing its wear and tear energy, this GEL-Kayano 14 looks like it’s been freshly plushed from the vault. The upper is crafted from blue “Cold Moss” leather, and it’s decorated with gold foil accenting throughout, like a beautiful patina forming on a centuries-old statue. This metallic hue extends from the toebox all the way to the heel, and you’ll even find some more on the legendary Tiger Stripes logo too.

Cotton laces tie everything together, and underfoot, you’ll find a highly-sculpted midsole that’s infused with ASICS‘ critically-acclaimed GEL technology for unrivalled comfort and cushioning with every step. This unit has been finished with an oxidised look that’s sure to turn heads wherever you go.

Not much else is known about the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 “Pre-Worn” just yet, but it’s expected to release within the coming months. Let us know what you think of this upcoming colourway, and be sure to keep it locked at Captain Creps for your best chance to secure your size.
