Before Ronnie Fieg’s work with Asics started to take off and turned the sneaker world upside down, Paris super-store Colette linked with their former internet counterpart, We Sold Out! put together a rather stunning set of GT-II’s. Also thrown into the designing picture was design firm, and close friends, La MJC. This build of the Asics model feature a mix of suede, nylon and exotic leather, each placed and colored expertly. Though is happens rarely these days, the 2008 Asics x Sold out GT-II was sold with a scarf echoing the white, blue, black, and red colors of the silhouette.

Like many Asics collaborations, the GT-II was extremely limited. With only 100 pairs being made, the light blue, red, black, and white silhouette was only released in Europe with 76 pairs at Colette, 12 pairs at Patta and 12 pairs at Solebox. Since this release, collaboration on the Asics GT-II have been heavily sought after with Ronnie Fieg, being a key factor in the growth of the silhouette.Embossed with the We Sold Out logo across the medial heel, the French flag-inspired 2008 ASICS x Sold out GT II is one for the history books.
