BAIT and Brooks strike a perfect balance between luxury and comfort with the Fusion “Oyster”. The collaboration draws its inspiration from the oyster leather that is often found on high-end goods and cars. Premium micro-perforated oyster leather and nubuck encompass the upper. Black stitching emphasizes the design of the 90’s runner while introducing a handmade feel. Branding is kept to a minimum to maintain a neutral and less brand-driven appearance. Additionally, the shoe features a leather interior and two sets of leather laces (black and neutral). 99 pairs of the shoe were produced, with each pair individually numbered on the insole.
The BAIT x Brooks Fusion “Oyster” launches on June 6, 2015 for $160 at all five BAIT chapter stores, Concepts.
