Super-Limited Assassin’s Creed: Origins Branded Yeezy Sneakers Announced

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Ubisoft is going all out with their ridiculously expensive merchandise to commemorate the upcoming release for Assassin’s Creed: Origins.

Between an $800 collector’s edition and $59,000 18K gold headphones, they’ve gone a step further and got the infamous Kanye West and his Yeezy brand of sneakers to produce an extremely limited pair of sneakers. How rare? Only 16 pairs will be made in the world, and they’re not even available for purchase.

Designed by sneaker artist Dominic Lowman and coming in both white and black tones, Ubisoft will relegate divvying out these super rare sneakers in free giveaways. The publisher noted that details will be announced shortly, so we’ll keep you guys posted.

Assassin’s Creed: Origins launches across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 27th. In case you missed it, you can find my exclusive hands-on video preview demo for the game from this year’s E3 here.

    Rather than wasting millions on “advertising” through extremely limited items, they might just as well produce regular and affordable enough versions of them for fans to actually purchase and spread awareness for the game through social media.

    I mean, these shoes don’t seem too awful, logo aside. And the cans from the previous article see decently looking as far as vidya themed ones go. Wouldn’t get ’em myself, but there should surely be a market for all this.

    Of course, not making all these insane expenses in the first place – to the extent that the season pass had to be priced 40 bucks rather than 25 like TW3’s – would’ve been much preferable.

    That’s the ugliest pair of shoes I ever laid my eyes on.It must be a particular skill to create something that ugly.

    Are those things made of fucking yarn and cheap rubber? Because they certainly look like they are. And who the fuck would buy 18K gold headphones? Why would you waste money making those fucking things? There are so many more practical things that could go towards, like QA so this AC doesn’t also end up a buggy mess, for example.

    My only interest in these sneakers is seeing how much they’ll end up selling for on EBAY.

    What better way to pretend your ancestors weren’t professional dick-washers than by wearing overpriced shoes.

    Can’t skip the tradition of bringing up their horrible fashion sense along with every new game.
