Year: 2012

Sneakersnstuff, which opened in Sweden in 1999 and has since expanded across Western Europe, has become a powerhouse amongst independent sneaker boutiques, and its collaborations have been various and consistent throughout the years. The shop's 2012 work with ASICS on the GT-II resulted in a mostly black colorway that was inspired "the classic Swedish movie The Seventh Seal. A film that was written and directed by the legend 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." The complex concept of the shoe was broken down to a simple shoe, which isn't easy to do. The chess piece on the heel makes the shoe standout against the black backdrop.
