ASICS GEL-Kayano Trainer (TN310)

Year: 1993

MSRP: $130

The original Kayano utilized the tech of the day — skeletal logo stripes for support, visible THETA GEL in the heel and porous P-GEL in the forefoot. The upper was mesh with Coolmax reinforced by synthetic suede. The original catalog copy didn't mention weight, but it wasn't a feather.
