New Balance joins forces with L.A. sneaker boutique BAIT to launch the 710 “Roadblack,” featuring an eye-catching design inspired by the G.I. Joe team’s heavy artillery expert of the same name. Selected for its parallels to a traditional military boot, the New Balance 710 is rendered here with a sand-colored upper, outfitted with wolverine suede and durable ballistic nylon, highlighted by a custom digital desert camo pattern laser-etched onto the suede panels. The rugged outsole is finished in icy blue with embedded white speckles, which combines with a red and white midsole for a patriotic aesthetic. A D-ring lacing system, leather lining, G.I. Joe lacelocks and custom branded insoles round out the details. Retailing for $120, the BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance 710 “Roadblock” launches June 20th at BAIT chapter stores and online via raffle.
