The standards for shoe collaborations continue to elevate as those who work directly with the brand are continuously tasked to redefine what these cooperative releases are meant to establish. BAIT tends to make the process an inclusive affair by adding in a third party to truly mix things up as they’ve worked with some of the greatest movie/TV franchises in history such as Shrek, GI Joe, and more. They’re expanding their icon-filled portfolio with this four-shoe collection of Diadora runners (two N.9000, one S.8000, and the Aeon) inspired by Hasbro’s Transformers – specifically Optimus Prime, Megatron, Bumblebee, and Soundwave. Each colorway is constructed with high-quality materials, customs Transformers x Diadora x BAIT insoles, and metallic Autobot/Decepticon badges on the heel. The custom packaging features incredible sketches of the characters, and each pair will come accompanied by a corresponding BAIT x Les Schettko designed “TV Edition” collectible figure.
The entire set of the BAIT x Transformers x Diadora retails for $230 apiece and will be available this Saturday, September 9th exclusively at BAIT in-store and through their online raffle.
