Asics| History

Sneakers Magazine

Asics was founded on 1st September 1949 by Kihachiro Onitsuka. He began to manufacture basketball sneakers in his home town Kobe, Japan. later on, the brand transformed and spread out into different sports with variating success. 

Their running line especially the Gel Lyte which released in 1987 was a huge success and still sells well today.

Bulgarian designer, Kiko Kostadinov, first collaborated with Asics on a few new sneakers that he revealed during his Spring 18 men’s fashion show. Although he isn’t directly involved with Asics’ latest sneakers, hints of his design direction are evident.

Over the past couple of years, the duo has released over 10 sneakers together and has signed a multi-year partnership contract that will see multiple sneakers yearly at varying price points. Recently they dropped the Asics Gel-Kayano 14 Gold and the Classic Red colorways that sold quite well.

Resale, however, was mediocre for the most part. To estimate resale for the Asics HS1-S Tarther Blast Misty Pine and Midnight, let’s head over to StockX.

StockX

Retail Price: $160

Peak Resell: $300

 This Gel Kayano 14 comes in a mesh upper with a synthetic leather overlay that comes in a myriad of patterns. Long pull-tabs are featured over the tongues while It wears subtle grey and black color tones. 

A matching midsole and black outsole complete this 2000s-inspired design.

The average selling price on reseller websites is just around $180 which is a $20 gross profit. At peak resale prices, gross profits are as high as $140 per pair. The Asics HS1-S Tarther Blast Misty Pine and Midnight may have a similar resale value.

Asics HS1-S Tarther Blast “Misty Pine” and “Midnight”| Where to Buy

You can buy these sneakers at select retailers and Asics.com. The retail price for each pair is set at $120.

To buy them sooner for resale prices, visit reseller’s websites such as StockX.

Estimated Resell Value

Although Asics shoes are popular, only certain sizes will likely sell out while others might sit on shelves. Also as we’ve seen in the past, resale isn’t the greatest for these sneakers.

Using my estimated resell value of $140, expect gross profits of around $20 per pair. Therefore according to our Hype Meter, I give these shoes a “Retail”!
