First Look: Cowboy Bebop x BAIT x adidas Consortium MatchplayRelease: 18 September 2021
One of the most legendary Japanese animes of all time, Shinichirō Watanabe’s sexy, star-hopping Cowboy Bebop series continues to remain popular today, the space western even scheduled for an upcoming live-action film.
Now, everybody’s favourite bounty hunters are set to break into the sneaker industry, teaming up with Eric Cheng’s BAIT and adidas for the Matchplay. Worn by the late great tennis player Arthur Ashe, the Matchplay is manufactured in super smooth black leather uppers, with a blast of neon yellow and green branding on the tongues – featuring the trio of collaborators. The heel tabs follow suit in red and blue, while the heel counter is emblazoned in Cowboy Bebop text in both English and Japanese.
The collaboration will also arrive with both neon green and yellow laces for customisation. Down below, a classic black vulcanised sole completes the look.
Hot on the heels of BAIT’s One Punch Man Montreal 76, and the Initial D Nizza Hi, anime-inspired sneakers continue to empower the industry in 2021. Check out some of our favourites right here.
Look for the Cowboy Bebop x BAIT x adidas Matchplay to release on September 18. You can enter the raffle now.
