Asics and iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood have more in common than you might think.

Sharing a long history of design and championed uniqueness, they boast quality, craftsmanship and innovation at their core. 

Now, Asics and Vivienne Westwood have joined forces on the GEL-Mai and GEL-Kayano 5 OG.

The first two styles released earlier this year were inspired by the early punk years of Vivienne Westwood, featuring the iconic Squiggle print. 

Then came the second release of three new limited-edition styles under the AsicsTiger label this summer.

Exploring the designs of a later period of Vivienne Westwood's collections – looking to historical references through art and fashion, in particular paintings from the 18th century French artist François Boucher - it references Vivienne Westwood's seminal Autumn/Winter 1990 collection ‘Portrait'.

The shared distinction of Asics and Westwood to transcend the ordinary brought about this unique collaboration which appeals to those with a love of sport and high fashion.

We love these, and whether out in town during the day or partying with friends later on, these shoes fit the bill and, despite their quirkiness, can go with a variety of styles.

Each sneaker in the collection features the Vivienne Westwood multi-coloured orb logo which is bonded to a reflective strip on the back of the shoe.

The Westwood CHAOS quota stitched to the side of the trainer mixes sportswear technology with high fashion, creating a truly hybrid trainer that will be snapped up by sneaker aficionados everywhere.
