New California-based retailer BAIT has joined forces with ASICS to pay tribute to the Olympic Games through the ASICS x BAIT Ring Pack, a collection made up of five Asics sneaker styles finished in the colors of the Olympic rings logo. All five pairs share two common features, reflective 3M accents and a metallic gold insole. The first two colorways out of the gate, set to release tomorrow, are the Gel Lyte III “Blue Ring” with a synthetic blue upper complemented with a medial-side panel in a striking red hue, and the Gel GTII “Yellow Ring” with buttery yellow suede upper with blue and black accents throughout. In addition to the Blue and Yellow styles dropping at BAIT’s online store July 27th at 12 a.m. ET, customers will also have the opportunity to purchase the entire Olympic Ring Pack of all five shoes. (The Blue Gel Lyte III, plus Yellow and Red GTIIs will ship immediately, followed by the Black Gel Saga and Green Gel Lyte III in mid-August). The special 5-shoe pack will come with complimentary BAIT x GoodWood bracelet and BAIT hat.
Release Date: July 27th, 2012 (Friday)
