Southern Cali-based BAIT has teamed up once again with Brooks Heritage, and the joint venture this time around centers on a uniquely designed sneaker made in extremely limited numbers. The “Oyster” Fusion is meant to evoke the look of a high-end sports car, with a premium micro-perforated oyster leather and nubuck upper resembling the vehicle’s luxurious interior. Branding is kept to a minimum to here, and the use of contrast black stitching emphasizes the distinct lines of the ’90s runner while maintaining a handmade feel. Just 99 pairs of the shoe were produced, with each pair individually numbered on the insole. The BAIT x Brooks “Oyster” Fusion launches June 6th for $160 at all five BAIT chapter stores, as well as online via raffle.
