BAIT will celebrate its recent opening with an exclusive collaboration with running shoe giant Saucony. Featuring a luxurious suede upper and fresh color palate, the BAIT x Saucony Grid 9000 “Viridian Burner” is a perfect testament to the store’s mantra – to bring customers only the best products, materials, and ideas on the market.
BAIT went on the hunt for a classic and stylish running silhouette – Saucony’s early nineties hit, the Grid 9000 – and tracked down only the richest suede in the cleanest colors to use on the special release. The “Viridian Burner” features a soft perforated suede upper that is splashed with a fresh viridian color, while jet black perforated overlays provide eye-catching contrast. Hints of vibrant red strike through the side Saucony logo, heel, and inner lining. A gradient viridian-to-black fade runs through the back of the midsole, sitting atop a red rubber outsole. The asymmetric design features eye-popping reflective 3M accents on the lateral side. For a finishing touch, a serrated BAIT logo tongue pull runs up the midfoot and underneath the laces. Each pair comes with three sets of laces – black, red, and viridian green.
The BAIT x Saucony Grid 9000 “Viridian Burner” will be available Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 9:00am PST at PYS.com, BAITme.com, and the BAIT retail store in Diamond Bar, CA before launching at select specialty accounts a few weeks later. The limited collaboration will retail for $99.99. Click the links to grab your pair now or hit the jump for more detailed looks at the exclusive collab.
