BAIT have been busy this year, turning heads through several heated colabs with the likes of Diadora, adidas and Reebok. Now the west coast retailer has joined forces with Lacoste to craft a crocodilian take on the Inca silhouette. The 'Dark Crocodiles' collaboration sees the mid-top sneaker adorned with croc-embossed nubuck – a nod to Lacoste’s logo – across its quarter panels and supportive heel strap. With a primarily black upper, the customised sneaker features a modified bootie with a ridged collar providing a snug fit. Rounding out the resplendent reptilian redesign, the tongue tag shines in reflective 3M, while the premium leather insoles feature woven co-branding.
The BAIT x Lacoste Inca 'Dark Crocodiles' releases November 12 via BAIT's online raffle.
