Hi guys, I'm Kev aka Kevsics. I'm originally from Spain, but I was born and raised in the beautiful and cold city of Bern, Switzerland.
I began collecting back in 2011/12 with a big focus on Asics, New Balance and later on it evolved to a real passion of the Japanese brand.
Having such a big passion for ASICS, I thought I should do something with it – so I decided to start a my blog www.kevsics.com. On the blog you can find different information about the brand's history, new releases, my collection, ASICS Tiger retailers around the world and much more. It's been more then a year now and the page is doing good, but you should stay tuned to 2017, because they will be some updates and changes that could be very interesting for the readers.
Below you can have a look at my all time top 3 collaborations of ASICS.
Asics Gel Lyte III x Zillion
The ASICS Gel Lyte III x Zillion released back in 2011 in collaboration with the Japanese lace producer and retailer Zillion. This pair has been my all time favorite for a long time and luckily enough, I can say I copped them before the prices went completly out of hand. Unfortunately Zillion went bankrupt in 2013 so we won't be seeing any further collaborations of the lace producer.
Personally, the combination of the cream upper with the Kimono material details on the toe box, tongue and side panels, combined with the light brown midsole just makes this pair an absolut stunner.
ASICS Gel Lyte III x Hanon Shop "Wildcats"
Asics Gel Lyte III x Colette x LAMJC
The ASICS Gel Lyte III x Colette x LAMJC released in 2008, as a part of the "Sold Out" project between ASICS, the french retailer Colette and LAMJC, which also included a GT-II. Both pairs were released in very limited numbers, even if the official quanitity was 100 pairs, they were produced around 40 more of each.
I think the colorway of this pair is fire, especially thinking that in 2008 not all men were in to wearing mint, pink and purple. The only part of the collaboration that I don't like that much, is the material. In my opinion the quality isn't that great and the material choice could have been better for sure.
Very near to both collaborations above, but due to the material issue they're on spot 3 of my all time favorites.
