The lifelong pursuit of fitness is an obsession for many, but it’s also a full-fledged culture that revolves around the connection with oneself, to the surrounding area, and to the community. Two of the industry’s most valued proprietors — Reigning Champ, and Asics — understand those relationships better than most; and now, they’ve partnered in homage to Reigning Champ’s home city.
The companies’ most recent “Vancouver Edition” capsule highlights the coastal seaport’s most prominent running trails, focusing primarily on the Sea to Sky Corridor. Inside, both Reigning Champ and Asics’ committed followerships will find a selection of cardio-focused peripherals, including a navy Gel-Quantum 3605 Trail shoe, a waterproof Gel-Cumulus 21 G-TX, Polartec Alpha-embued performancewear, and Merino wool essentials enhanced by a four-way stretch fabric. To honor Vancouver’s plentiful trail system, bespoke imagery serves to illustrate five of the Sea to Sky Corridor’s main peaks, calling upon woven-in topographical maps and rocky textures throughout. Look for the collection to hit shelves on February 1, with pieces starting as low as $16.
