Once again Sneakersnstuff teamed up with Asics to work on a collaboration project. For this round Sneakersnstuff chose to work on their favorite Asics silhouette – the GT-II. It is the same model that Sneakersnstuff worked on for their first project with Asics back in 2011, when they released a runestone version of the shoe.

The inspiration for the design comes from the classic Swedish movie “The Seventh Seal”. A film that was written and directed by the legendary Ingmar Bergman. The story of the movie takes place during the Black Death in Sweden and you follow the journey of a medieval knight and his game of chess with Death regarding his life.

This version of the Asics GT-II is made in heavy black nubuck with black and white details. On the heel and sock liner you have the chess pieces from the game and of course it comes with a checkered lining. The stripes on the lateral side of the shoe are black with a 3M base and on the medial side the stripes are white with a 3M base as well.

The Sneakersnstuff x Asics GT-II will be released at Sneakersnstuff in Stockholm and Malmö on October 20th and online here. The global release is set to October 27th 2012 at selected Asics accounts worldwide.
