A shoe that was eight years in the making, the GEL-KINSEI™ OG sneaker that debuted in 2006 is making its awaited return from the ASICS archive with its authentic construction.
Uniting Japanese heritage and craftsmanship with modern mechanical design, this silhouette draws inspiration from a samurai’s armor—shielding the body, while enabling it to move freely.The angled GEL™ technology cushioning unit in the heel references the shape of the samurai’s curvaceous katana sword to better attenuate the severity of shock upon heel strike.
Reimagining the debut offerings, for today this iteration flips the OG color blocking for a modern take on the retro running style.
Resurrected with visible evolution and a contemporary design, the GEL-KINSEI™ OG sneaker allows you to wear this shoe as a heritage icon that's still technical, even by today's standards.
