Throwbaaaaaaack! And1 was once ubiquitous on hardcourts in the pro leagues, but they shot for the stars too quickly and faded away. A renaissance isn't exactly on the cards, but Bait is helping out with the baby steps back to the top, pairing up with the ball boot brand to launch this 'Blue Apple' rendition of the Tai Chi model. Moving the Blue Apple theme we saw on their Saucony Shadow colab to a higher-cut sneak, powdery blue panels are slapped on the toebox and medial sides while rich red suede overlays the lateral and tongue portions of the upper. The Bait x And1 Tai Chi 'Blue Apple' will launch on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at Bait, in time to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Vince Carter's Slam Dunk dominance in 2000, when he made aggressive moves in a peaceful pair of Tai Chis.
