Asics Gel-Kinsei OG Black/Black sneakers - US mens size 12.5 EU 47
2019 reissue of Asics' 2006 cult running shoe, the gel-kinsei OG. Here in the black/black colourway (although it should really be called black/very dark, slightly shiny brown because sections of the upper are really a very dark, slightly shiny brown synthetic leather). More about the gel-kinsei per asics advertising copy: "Uniting Japanese heritage and craftsmanship with modern mechanical design, this silhouette draws inspiration from a samurai's armour: 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. Presenting TRUSSTIC SYSTEM technology under the sole's arch to improve stability, this feature also lessens the shoe's overall weight.
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."
Good condition, with minor creasing and wear on sole (see pictures). Comes with original box.
