A New HAL STUDIOS x ASICS Collab Is In the Works

As confirmed by brand director John Bouquet.


[Update 20 Feb 2024] More detailed images of the HAL STUDIOS x ASICS GEL-KAYANO 20 have now emerged, courtesy of brand director John Bouquet. Check them out in the gallery above and anticipate a release later this year.


Following an extremely limited Velosamba release with adidas, HAL STUDIOS is now set to return with another ASICS partnership within the year of 2024. Brand director John Bouquet has teased an early look at the duo’s upcoming works, unveiling an original footwear model for the collaboration.

At first glance, the pair is reminiscent of the GEL-KAYANO 20 with its retro running aesthetic and GEL midsole cushioning, updated with a stripped down leather overlay running and velcro lacing system.

Additional design elements include dual branding on the insoles and also logo profiles on the heel counters. Lastly, the pair comes completed in a lineup of “Black/Cream”, “Wheat/Grey”, and “Chocolate Brown” colorways.

Further details have yet to be disclosed at this time, but we can expect more to be revealed in the coming months by HAL STUDIOS. Until then, stay tuned here for further updates.
