ASICS aligns with Japanese high-end bag retailer, Porter to reinterpret its classic GEL-Kayano silhouette. Dubbed “That Black Nylon,” the sneaker is essentially a stealthy iteration with its all black hue, and comprised of the same fabric used in Porter’s classic Tanker series.

Further detailing with Porter’s tag adorning the sides, the soles and lining in the brand’s trademark orange also solidifies its collaboration. A choice between flat black shoelaces or the same drawstring cord used in the Tanker will be available as well, in addition to an exclusive Porter pouch for the sneaker.
