SneakersNStuff and ASICS come full circle with another collaboration, returning to the silhouette that first brought them together back in 2011. This time around the sneaker brands take use the classic Swedish movie, “The Seventh Seal” as inspiration for their blacked-out GT-II, taking Ingmar Bergman’s movie following the journey of a medieval knight playing chess against Death with his own life on the line. Fitting with the theme, the heel and sock liner feature chess pieces from the game in white while the rest of the upper’s heavy nubuck leather is coated in a deep black, fitting of the setting of the movie during the Black Death. The 3M base underneath and the medial branding is white, finishing the checkboard theme. If you want in on this Sneakersnstuff x ASICS GT-II, it will be released at all Sneakersnstuff stores and online October 20th.
Release Date: October 20th, 2012 (Saturday)
