The upcoming Concepts x ASICS Gel Lyte V collaboration will be extremely limited. Here's the kicker, though: The very limited nature of this sneaker wasn't intentional.

Concepts' Deon Point recently took to Instagram to explain what exactly happened with this particular ASICS sneaker.

Point said that quantities from the production run were cut in half because of a fire that occurred during the recent anti-China protests in Vietnam. Additionally, more pairs were lost just today after Point discovered that some of the sneakers were covered in 3" of water.

"This shoe has been to hell and back and will be extremely limited due to the elements," Point said.

It's not known how many total pairs were affected by the fire in Vietnam and the recent water damage, but the release will go on as planned. The launch date is Saturday, August 2, and bracelets will be handed out first-come, first-served on Friday.
