2012’s lineup of collabo Asics pairs just got cut short by a little bit, a little fiasco taking place with the new SneakersNStuff x Asics GT-II ‘The Seventh Seal’ pair. The shoe was released last weekend at the SneakersNStuff spot, with a global release set for tomorrow, the 27th. Only thing is that the majority of pairs crafted up were produced incorrectly, with the back chess piece hit showing up in blue, a violation of the inspired black and white theme. As a result you won’t see these at any other retailers, with the 158 ‘correct pairs’ sold at SNS last weekend being the only ones available. Click through to get SneakersNStuff’s explanation and let us know if you’re lamenting the Asics GT-II cancellation.
Attention sneaker lovers!
Tomorrow, October 27th was supposed to be the world wide release date for our GT-II collaboration with ASICS that was released October 20th at Sneakersnstuff.
Two weeks ago when we received the shoes from ASICS we opened a box and saw that the white chess piece on the left shoe was blue. We looked through all the pairs and we took away all the “wrong” pairs. Left was 158 pairs that we sold for the release.
Due to this problem we have chosen to take all the pairs back that was supposed to be sold at other stores tomorrow. Because we don’t want people to get a pair that is not correct.
We hope everyone understand this and congratulations to everyone that got a pair. This release is now officially mad limited…
Again, we’re sorry about this!
