I am a sneakerhead

I am a sneakerhead episode 10 - @Liksl

Hello, my name is Loïc Stulz, I'm 19 years old. I live in Switzerland in Fribourg, Fribourg is a small town near Bern.
I’m apprentice, I still have one year and a half year to finish my apprenticeship and then I would like to travel and take time for myself.

I started collecting shoes at the beginning of 2014. I bought my first pair of Nike Roshe Run. At that time I loved this pair but it passed me when I saw that everyone was beginning to wear it. Then I became fan of Asics Gel Lyte III. My first Asics pairs was the “Asics Gel Lyte 3 Sports Pack" a basic pair. Then it was from April 2015 that my "addiction" for Asics sneakers has really began. Today I owned 62 pairs. My favorite model is the Gel Lyte III, I have 44 pairs of them, I also like the Gel Lyte V 14 pairs, Saga 3 pairs and one pair of Vintage. Asics and those famous pairs have played an important role in my life. I find that the pairs of Asics are very cool, the collaborations particularly attract me because knowing that the pair is limited to a certain number of copies. Moreover the stores offers premium materials.

I am currently looking for a few pairs made by Ronnie Fieg because I find them all exceptional.
I have only done 2 Campouts. One for the Asics Gel Lyte III x AFEW "Koi" and the second one for the Asics Gel Lyte III x Ronnie Fieg "homage". I had such a great time and they are a great place to make new friends plus it's always a pleasure to share a night in front of the store with people who share the same passion as I have. Unfortunately the cold temperature in winter is the only inconvenient.

Normally I don’t pay more than the retail price for my shoes. I have many friends all over Europe, it’s an advantage for hook-up. The highest amount that i have payed for a pair of shoes is 400€. It was for the model Koi because i can’t cop them at the campout and I really wanted them.
So I bought the first pair with my size that I saw on the internet.
After a long thinking about my Top 3, here my choice:

1) Asics x Ronnie Fieg “Selvedge Denim“ from 2012
2) Asics x SlamJam 2.0 from 2013
3) Asics x Alife “Black Monster“ from 2007
