The late 2000s aesthetic of the UBS-1 GEL-KAYANO® 14 sneaker explores the concept of "Retro Futurism" and its duality between archived fashion silhouettes and Japanese workwear. We kept the original GEL-KAYANO® 14 running shoe aesthetic intact on the upper but modified its materials with synthetic leather overlays and elongated pull tabs on the tongue. Built with GEL® technology cushioning and a TRUSSTIC™ support unit, this shoe’s tooling preserves its traditional shape while evolving its functionality for today.
Synthetic leather overlays
GEL® Technology Cushioning provides excellent shock absorption
Trusstic System® technology Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
