BAIT x ONITSUKA TIGER x BRUCE LEE 75th ANNIVERSARY PACK
Paying homage to the legendary martial artist and film actor Bruce Lee, US-based sneaker/streetwear store BAIT got together with Onitsuka Tiger to create a pack celebrating Lee’s 75th birthday. The two-piece pack is comprised of the Corsair and the Colorado Eighty-Five. Taking inspiration from the signature kung fu uniform Lee wore, the Corsair uses black suede and navy leather with an engraved dragon on the shoe’s upper. The sleek silhouette of the Corsair also mimics the slip-ons used for martial arts, which ties in what the brands envisioned for this special release. The heel features gold prints of Lee’s name on the left and the iconic kickman logo on the right. The shoe also features the special 75th anniversary logo on the insole as well as Lee’s signature on the sneaker’s lace tips.
The other half of the Anniversary Pack is the Colorado Eighty-Five ‘Legend’. The shoe is dressed in the famous Bruce Lee Yellow & Black jumpsuit he wore during ‘Game of Death’. The branding throughout the shoe is similar to the Corsair, with heel and insole graphics and a co-branded tongue tag between Bruce Lee and Onitsuka Tiger. Speckles on the midsole as well as premium yellow nubuck uppers and black leather formstripes.
The BAIT x Onitsuka Tiger ‘Jeet Kune Do’ and Colorado Eighty-Five ‘Legend’ drop today at all Onitsuka Tiger concept stores around the metro. The Corsair will retail for Php 7,600 while the Colorado Eighty-Five ‘Legend’ retails for Php 10,500. Shoe Salon and Urban Superior will be releasing them as well at a later date.
