Sole Season III Recap

I visited the 3rd edition of the Sole Season III last Sunday, November 6th, which took place in the Halle 7 in Basel. I had a wonderful time and was happy to see some old friends again to catch up and of course talk about kicks.
Big up to the whole Sole Season Crew for hosting once again a very nice event!
Here’s a little recap of the event…

People from all over Switzerland and also Germany met this past weekend at the Sole Season III to buy, sell and trade sneakers.
A good amount of private sellers had their tables ready on Sunday, with some really nice and rare runners, and also the Seven Sneaker Store was represented with an huge selection for the female visitors.
Even if it was quite cold, the weather was pretty nice and over 1’000 visitors came by to check out the great atmosphere at Sole Season. The best part of the event was spending time with some buddies that I hadn’t seen in a while and also that I was able to pick up some pretty cool pairs.

As the event was sponsored by ASICS Tiger my good friend @artlezsnkrs and I decided to prepare a ASICS history exhibition table, honoring also the 30th Anniversary of GEL-Innovation. OG pairs from the 80’s and 90’s, together with some of the most popular and limited collaborations and samples from between 2006 and 2015.
A good bunch of OG Gel Lyte II, III and V, but also Gel Saga and Japan exclusive silhouettes from back in the 90’s. Going over to the most limited collabs from 24, Kilates, BBB, Colette, Hanon, Patta, Ronnie Fieg, Slam Jam and much more.
We were also able to show the visitors some of the rarest ASICS Samples, including the black and white Zillion Sample, the two unreleased “Blue Carpenter Bee” Pack and the GGB 1 of 2 Gel Lyte III Sample, by Hikmet Sugoer.
It was really nice to see the people’s nice reaction to the table and also to talk to some guys that appreciate the brand as much as I do.

It was also nice to see some really nice ASICS pairs on the visitors feet as you can see in some of the pics above. The once I liked the most were definitely the recent EMMI Gel Lyte III, the Solefly Gel Lyte III and the Gel Saga “Mazarine” by Ronnie Fieg.
Edwin Europe was also represented, showing their new collection and selling some good quality denim and clothes for fair prices.
A store I really recommend you to check out in case your looking for a good piece of clothing.

A special thank you goes out to the whole “Jäger und Sammler” Crew, an incredible bunch of people, which did an amazing job once again. Being a part of the team shows me how much work does guys go trough to prepare the whole event, so big up to all of you for making it possible!
I also want also to thank ASICS Tiger, Seven Sneaker Store and Edwin, the main sponsors of this event.
I hope you enjoyed the event as much as I did, cause I had a great time last Sunday and I’m already looking forward to see you all again for Sole Season IV!

Thanks to my friend Henny for passing me over some of the pictures above!
