BAIT X Gi Joe X New Balance 574 (Cobra Commander)
Following on from the machine-gunning flow that they laid atop the New Balance 710, BAIT have turned their attention to the antagonist side of the legend, unveiling the partnering NB574 'Cobra Commander'. If you're not a big GI Joe fan, the below picture should help you to understand the inspiration, but in short, he was a real bad guy with a mad staff and cape! In translating the Commander's villainous badassery onto the 574, Bait has hit this makeup with smooth pigskin suede on the toebox, collar and tongue, which contrasts the laser-etched panels of the upper. Metallic silver insoles are a subtle nod to the Commander's infamous faceless-mask, finished with the Cobra's stamp of approval on the heel. Dropping alongside the 'Roadblock' 710s this coming June 20, expect to find them at all five BAIT chapter stores and also online at BAITme.com via an online raffle.
