BAIT X ASICS Gel Lyte V (Splash City 73-9)
NBA fans were faced with a cruel dilemma this week – watch one the greatest players of all-time set foot on the hardwood for the very last time or watch one of the league's most colossal records finally be challenged. The choice wasn't easy, but those that tuned into the Warriors last game of the season bore witness to a real slice of history, as Golden State's finest trumped the '96 Bulls' seemingly unbeatable 72-10 record.
BAIT clearly had faith in the abilities of the city's Golden Child, because not-more-than 24 hours after the Warriors' win, the Bay Area boutique has emerged with a colab celebrating the milestone. It looks like BAIT must have kept some 'Splash City' Gel Lyte Vs on reserve specially for the occasion, because this new release takes the 2015 ASICS colab – originally created to celebrate the store's arrival in San Fran – and updates it with the 73-9 record lasered at the heel. An essential buy for Warriors' fans, we suspect this will be the first of many commemorative releases to hit stores this year paying tribute to the Warriors insane achievement.
These are available right now exclusively through BAIT, both in-store and online.
