In celebration of what would be Bruce Lee’s 75th birthday, BAIT has joined forces with Onitsuka Tiger for a special release of the Corsair sneaker. Dubbed “Jeet Kune Do,” the shoe was inspired by the philosophy and martial arts technique of the legendary martial artist and film actor.
In paying homage to the signature kung fu uniform that Lee often wore, the Corsair notes construction from black suede and navy leather. The silhouette embodies a noticeably sleek design, somewhat mimicking that of kung fu slip-ons. As a nod to Bruce’s name, spirit and birth year, a dragon has been engraved across the upper of the sneaker. The heel in turn boasts a gold debossing of Lee’s iconic kickman and character name. And in further celebration of his 75th birthday, the insoles highlight a special Bruce Lee 75th anniversary logo. Black, navy and white laces accompany the kicks, with the lace tips featuring Lee’s signature.
The BAIT x Onitsuka Tiger Corsair “Jeet Kune Do” will be releasing on Bruce Lee’s birthday, November 27, at BAIT chapter stores and online via raffle. Retail is $120 USD. An exclusive Bruce Lee Funko Pop figure and apparel capsule will also be available alongside the collaborative sneaker.
