ASICS Malaysia announced a special rendition of the GEL-KAYANO 5 OG, inspired by the Malaysia’s national favourite, Nasi Lemak.

It’s the brand’s first-ever foray into the local sneaker scene presented by local multi-label retail store, Hundred% (hundred percent) and Malaysia’s biggest sneaker event, SneakerLAH.

This special edition of the GEL-KAYANO 5 OG design represents the vibrant colours of the Nasi Lemak dish to reflect the unity amongst the diverse cultures in Malaysia.



Off-white represents the rice and egg white, while green  signifies cucumber. Red reflects the chilli paste, while yellow takes the form of the yolk. The whole palette is finished off with a hint of brown, reflecting the nuts and anchovies.

Retailing for MYR599, the GEL-KAYANO 5 OG ‘Nasi Lemak Shoe’ will be available in limited quantities of 500 pairs exclusively at SneakerLAH 2019.
