Ubisoft is really going all out with the marketing for Assassin’s Creed Origins, to the point that it’s actually getting a bit silly. Just last month we had news of a pair of super-rare AC Origins headphones going for around R800,000, and now this: rare, custom-designed Yeezy sneakers. And my goodness they’re hard to look at.
Designed in collaboration with renowned sneaker design person Dominic Lowman, there’ll only be 16 pairs of the things worldwide. Which is a good thing. They won’t be available for purchase (I could tell you why, if you like), only as free giveaways. Which brings to mind the phrase “you couldn’t give these things away”. Which is what they’d have to do, because these special edition Yeezys look a lot like someone side-kicked a bit of poo.
Ubisoft, we already want to buy Assassin’s Creed Origins. You can stop now. Seriously.
