SneakersNStuff x Asics GT-II “The Seventh Seal”

October 2nd, 2012 by | 1 comment

sneakersnstuff x asics gt ii the seventh seal SneakersNStuff x Asics GT II The Seventh Seal

Best sneaker ever inspired by Swedish cinema? Seems like a safe bet, with the Swedish shop SneakersNStuff coloring up this Asics GT-II as an homage to Ingmar Bergman’s classic film The Seventh Seal, an extended metaphor of sorts that features the protagonist playing chess with death throughout the film. Color up might not be the right word though, as the pair sticks to a stoic black and white in line with the palette used in the 1950s film. Click through with us for the lookbook shots of this clever collab and keep in mind that this second Sneakersnstuff x Asics GT-II will hit SNS both instore and online on October 20th.

We mentioned in covering the most recent Gel Lyte III that Asics had previewed ‘Aqua’ and ‘Grape’-leaning classic runners at a January tradeshow, and now we see the latter on a silhouette five years the GL3′s senior.  The Asics GT-II also translates well to an Air Jordan Legacy-esque colorup, though there’s more of an anachronistic appeal with this 1986 model showing up in a distinctly early-’90s colorway.  Let us know which classic Asics runner better manifested this time capsule look after you’ve had a chance to see these GT-IIs from more angles after the jump below, then pre-order yours from Overkill ahead of the next Saturday, September 1st release.

Asics GT-II “Netherlands”

asics gt ii netherlands Asics GT II Netherlands

The Olympics are a great opportunity for footwear brands to go H.A.M. with country-specific colorways, so it’s understandable that sneakerheads harbor even more appreciation for the quadrennial global affair. Just take another look at this ‘Netherlands’ colorway of the Asics GT-II; it features the country’s red, white, and blue flag colors on the outsole and the uppermost eyelets, but the majority of the sneaker is dominated by a rich orange-y golden suede/mesh upper with the soft white sport mesh on the toe and ankle collar. Does Asics have more country colorways on the way? We’ll keep you posted if they do, but in the meantime, check out the Asics GT-II ‘Netherlands’ below and head on over to Europe’s TGWO to cop ‘em for yourself.

Netherlands Olympic Team x Asics GT-II

netherlands olympic team x asics gt ii Netherlands Olympic Team x Asics GT II

The Netherlands is no stranger to awesome Asics collaborations, having long enjoyed projects from the likes of Patta and related parties that pair up retro runners with distinct Dutch flavor. The latest release to come from there is no product of some boutique team-up, but rather a collaboration between Asics and the nation’s Olympic squad itself. The model selected here is the Asics GT-II, with two slightly different colorways (check the sole for differences) riffing off the orange we’ve come to associate with the country on a national sporting level and the tri-color eyelets bringing things in a bit closer to their flag. Click through for shots of the Olympic Team Netherlands x Asics GT-II package, complete with a matching bag, which will be available at SEVENTYFIVE in Amsterdam on July 21. A wider European release sans bag will go down on July 28th.

Sneakersnstuff x Asics GT-II Preview

June 19th, 2012 by | No comments

sneakersnstuff x asics gt ii1 Sneakersnstuff x Asics GT II Preview The collaborative output from the team at Sneakersnstuff has been sort of a Jekyll/Hyde affair, with the pairs produced ranging from extra bright to solemn and stoic. The new Asics GT-II they’re cooking up, the second time they’ve worked on that silhouette in as many years, is certainly more in line with the toned down category, blocked off with a simple black and white colorway that could be borrowed from the ‘Yin & Yang’ set of Asics Gel Lyte III’s from earlier this year. The suede sneakers do bring in just a bit of patterning, lining the innards with a checkerboard look. Click through to peep the pair and stick with Sneaker News for info on when this Sneakersnstuff x Asics GT-II will arrive. Photos: Tenisufki
