ASICS X BAIT GEL LYTE III - Based in Diamond Bar California, BAIT has only been open for about a year and a half, but has plenty to show for itself in that amount of time. Turning our double label projects with Saucony, Reebok, and ASICS as seen below, the shop has made quite a name for itself already. Aside from the collabs BAIT carries a wide selection of accessories and other items, from $5 toys to $10,000 pieces of art, they have carefully curated their selection to appeal to the masses. Both of the Gel Lyte III's below will be available Sat FEB.1 in store first at our Toronto and Gastown locations, IF any pairs remain after our in store line ups die down, they will be opened up to our online store HERE.
The first of three that we will receive from an exclusive collaboration between Bait and Asics is the Gel Lyte III "Basics Model-001Vanquish" model. Designed to bring common an uncommon elements together, the Basics program aims to create Asics models that are essential for daily life. The "Basics Model-001Vanquish" features a custom jacquard camouflage print developed by Bait, with an overlay of jet black, a nailhead suede frame, and metal mesh to reinforce the front, side and back. The shoe is finished off with gold and red accents alongside waxed round laces.

The "Basics Model-002 Guardian" is a conceptual take on a shoe designed to withstand the harsh conditions of an apocalyptic world. To that end, the shoe features a reinforced metal wire mesh upper with a custom camouflage pattern visible beneath it and rugged nailhead suede overlays. The wire mesh also features 3M reflective hexagon print on the toe, side, and heel. Waxed laces, a black suede formstripe, speckled midsole, and orange outsole complete the look.
