BAIT, New Balance, and Hasbro are following up on the success of their last two G.I. Joe collaborations with a new pack for fans. With "Roadblock" and "Cobra Commander" already having their own sneaker, this pack focuses on the "Arashikage" ninja clan.
To execute the "Arashikage" pack, the brand gave "Snake Eyes" and "Storm Shadow" each their own New Balance MT 580. The "Snake Eyes" version uses leather, suede, nylon, and 3M on its black upper, while incorporating "Arashikage Red" throughout. The "Storm Shadow" sneaker uses the clan's signature red and a blood splatter design on the midsole, insole and inner lining to contrast its all-white suede upper and iced outsole. Of course, both pairs come equipped with the "Arashikage" symbol on the heels and lacelocks for a finishing detail that true G.I. Joe fans will appreciate.
These sneakers will release on October 10, for $160 at all BAIT shops and baitme.com.
