We don’t often feature anything that isn’t directly Sneaker related here on Asylum Sneaker but we thought that this video on The Roots of Stussy was too good not to be shared. A great insight into the background behind the brand. They’ve also dropped one or two rather special Sneaker collaborations in the past, for this, we salute you Stussy!
This past weekend saw the European release of the highly limited Asics x St. Alfred GT III. UK based Wellgosh were amongst the select retailers selling the Sneakers with punters camping from 1am to guarantee them picking a pair up. This past weekend also saw St. Alfred get a re-stock of the GT III which resulted in the sites server crashing once again due to high volumes of traffic. Camping for kicks isn’t something that we often see in the UK but with Sneaker Culture rapidly growing on a day to day basis maybe we’ll start to see it more often.
Whilst a large majority of Sneakerheads are probably still camping whilst trawling ebay for a pair of Yeezy 2′s, Minneapolis’ A. Hart grinded to Kanye West’s beat by the same name in a recent examination of the Yeezy 2′s skate credentials. For those of you still looking for a pair of Yeezy 2′s, ……..start weeping.
Synchronized to the bends of a Nike Free Runner, this ‘Nike Building Twist’ spot sees Yokohama’s Red Brick Warehouse take on the modulations of the barefoot-mimicking sole whose series has strengthened feet around the world for nearly a decade. Asylum Sneaker looks forward to seeing more of Wieden & Kennedy and Nike Adverts. Check out the Video and let us know what you think.
