Celebrating their seventh anniversary, Australian retailer Highs and Lows have teamed up with Asics to produce these two amazing shoes. Dubbed 'bricks and mortar' the two colourways pay homage to the sneaker store in an age where online shops are sadly putting physical stores out of business.
Entries in GT II (7)
Sneakersnstuff have collaborated with Asics once again, this time revisiting the GT II silhouette that they worked on for their first project with Asics back in 2011. This latest design is inspired by The Seventh Seal, a Swedish film that was written and directed by Ingmar Bergman, in which a medieval knight plays a game of chess with Death.
If you remember, a week or so ago, Bowery Boy posted the first shots of the latest addition to Ronnie Fieg's catalogue of Asics builds. We now get to see the first detailed imagery of the GT II 'Rose Gold'.
We've previously seen Fieg produce another Gold shoe with 2007's Gel Lyte III 'Solid Gold', the latest arrivals take a more reserved approach to representing the precious metal. The material of choice once again appears to be that colour catching premium pigskin suede which Ronnie has taken as his media of choice of late.
I'm never tired of seeing what Ronnie Fieg comes up with next and I'm a huge fan of the personal level the man goes to when unveiling his latest projects. The last two Fieg releases I've seen have come straight from the man himself via his Twitter and Instagram rather than through re-blogging or third hand.
These images of a forthcoming Asics GT II come with the comment; "These had to take a swim #Shahaim'd" which to me suggests that, judging by the colorway, these could well be Asics GT II 'Salmons'.
These kicks popped up here and there on the tradeshow circuit earlier this year, and they will finally see a release on the 18th of June.
Asics have once again teamed up with their go-to contributor Ronnie Fieg to collaborate on the classic Asics GT II.
The teaser shot appears to show the shoe having a solid royal blue suede upper with a softer blue featuring on the logo, sat on a white mid sole with a royal blue out.
Seeing Mr Fieg's previous collaborations, it definitely looks like the GT II will be fitting right in with the rest.
