Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you: that is snakeskin on the Reebok Classics‘ Question Mid. This is the first time the pattern has been used on this sneaker and it’s an accomplishment that BAIT CEO Eric Cheng is happy about shepherding out to the flock. The result continues what has been a strong year for collaborations with this model as a canvas, but the addition of a YOTS theme running down the upper plus the addition of perforated suede and BAIT branding on the heel really sets this one apart. Surprisingly, Cheng isn’t completely satisfied with the end product, as he noted in his interview with COMPLEX, but that’s only because they had a few other ideas and details that they still wanted to work into the design. After reading more about BAIT’s inspiration for the design and reviewing all the preview shots after the click, you should be all amped up to grab a pair–the catch? You’ll just have to wait patiently until their August 10 release date. They’ll be waiting for you at BAIT’s retail store in SoCal and their online shop for $180.
Release Date: August 10, 2014 (Saturday)
