Ahead of the October 27 launch of Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ubisoft announces the “ACO Kicks” collaboration with sneaker artist Dominic Lowman of Carmeno Custom Kicks. Here, we find Lowman presenting a limited edition YEEZY Boost made specifically for the game.
The handcrafted kicks, in a run of 16, draw inspiration from the historical setting of Assassin’s Creed Origins, as Lowman worked alongside Ubisoft’s development team to explore the ancient in-game world prior to applying his artistic touches to the YEEZYs. Bayek, the lead character in the latest Assassin’s Creed title, is the focal point of the project, with appropriated designs being carried out on both white and black YEEZY color options.
“It’s been so cool to work with Ubisoft on designing the Assassin’s Creed Origins sneaks,” says Lowman. “For me, sneaker culture is a perfect representation of popular culture right now and it’s been amazing to merge this with a gaming franchise to create something that is not only wearable, but rich with history and a back story.”
The Assassin’s Creed Origins YEEZYs will only be available to lucky competition winners. Details surrounding the contest will be announced via Ubisoft’s social media channels.
