The ASICS GEL-Kayano didn’t become the Japanese brand’s “it” sneaker by turning its nose up at trendy colorways. No, the chomed-out aesthetics that dominate Instagram feeds are exactly the same ones the model has always leaned into. In its latest “Metropolis” colorway, that’s never been truer, meeting those reflective details with some steely gray overtones.

You can catch the very slightest of “Jasper Green” poking out on the tongue, but otherwise this design is carried by an ever-reliable greyscale execution. Mineral hued dominate the upper, a design choice that leans on a philosophy of “give the people what they want” rather than throwing a stylistic curveball. Staid black and white is the choice underfoot, the air units and outsole encircling the midsole with nocturnal shades. If you’re looking for a way to add some “dad shoe” styles to your rotation, you’ll be hard pressed to find a shoe that leans into the punch better than the ASICS GEL-Kayano 14 “Metropolis.”

Expect this GEL-Kayano 14 hitting ASICS.com in June, retailing for $150. We’d recommend bookmarking this page to be ready for that drop; nearly every Gel-Kayano 14 sells out, and this pair will almost certainly follow suit.
