BAIT has partnered with ASICS for “Splash City,” a special take on the GEL-Lyte V. The shoe is designed to celebrate San Francisco – the home of BAIT’s upcoming fifth chapter store – with influences from the Bay Area’s beloved basketball franchise. A familiar blue hue wraps around the toe and heel, and is also used for the gradient wave design on the midsole for added splash. Meanwhile, the black leather formstripe is highlighted with a 3M Sunny Gold tiger-stripe. The upper is constructed from premium pigskin suede and nubuck overlays that house the GEL-Lyte V’s signature neoprene sockliner. The shoe also features BAIT basketball artwork on the insoles and three sets of laces – black rope, black flat and blue flat.

The BAIT x ASICS GEL-Lyte V “Splash City” will be available exclusively at a special preview of the new BAIT San Francisco location on April 11 and 12 only. Limited size runs will be available each day beginning at 10 a.m. PST on a first-come, first-serve basis. All remaining pairs will be made available online at a later date.
