Seiko 5 Sports and Japanese skateboard brand EVISEN SKATEBOARDS have collaborated on a lineup of three models that express EVISEN’s unique worldview – Seiko 5 Sports EVISEN SKATEBOARDS Limited Editions.
A Japanese skateboard brand launched by director Katsumi Minami and his friends in 2011. The name EVISEN is derived from ‘‘everything’’ pronounced with Japanese intonation, and expresses the belief that ‘‘skateboarding is everything’’. The brand has released a variety of products that incorporate ancient Japanese traditions and culture, as well as works by artists associated with the brand.
EVISEN team riders are all unique and talented from Japan and abroad. The brand is based in Tokyo, but has close ties to Osaka, Sendai, and other major cities in Japan as well as appearing in international media. Pursuing the essence of skateboarding, EVISEN produces skateboard decks and videos, as well as solid apparel collections that reflect skateboards’ originality.
