Check Out These G.I. JOE-Themed Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow Sneakers From Hasbro and ASICS
Hasbro has teamed up with ASICS to create and sell a collection of limited edition G.I. Joe inspired shoes that pay homage to Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes! They’re pretty cool sneakers, and I’ll definitely be ordering a pair of each for myself because why wouldn’t I!?
The shoes are currently on sale at Foot Locker, and they will cost you $120 a pair. Oh yeah, now I remember why I won’t be ordering a pair of each for myself.
Here’s the official description for the ASICS G.I. Joe sneakers:
"The line is inspired by an epic chapter in the G.I. Joe lore: the rivalry between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes. Once brothers in arms as part of the Arashikage Clan, they find themselves on opposing sides of the struggle between G.I. Joe and Cobra. Now Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes each adorn their own GEL-LYTE III shoe designed by world renowned pop artist Anderson Bluu. Uncompromising on style and comfort, the GEL-LYTE III boasts iconic and innovative design that wouldn’t be complete without the split tongue and ASICS’ famous GEL technology cushioning; a silicone-like material that effectively absorbs shock and protects the feet from high-impact strikes."
"The black Snake Eyes model features a crystal rubber outsole with a discovery element, premium emblem and reflective detailing with black leather; the model is elevated and modernized with custom art on the insert. The white Storm Shadow model features a crystal rubber outsole which masks the character beneath while the premium emblem detailing grounds the model in the story. Through the intertwining of story and design aesthetic the model is elevated and modernized with custom art on the insert. On the bottom of both shoe models is an iced outsole revealing Zartan – a shadowy figure who plays a key part in the Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow story."
Now you know, and knowing is half the battle! The other half is deciding whether or not you’re going to buy yourself a pair!
