One of the nation’s premiere boutiques, BAIT, is headed to San Francisco, and they’re celebrating with the ASICS Gel Lyte V “Splash City” collaboration. With BAIT headed to the Mission District of SF, it’s fitting to commemorate the move with a special release. The inspiration for the release are the Golden State Warriors’ “Splash Brothers” Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. Considering the two form
one of the best back court in the league this is a tribute long overdue.
While this collab can’t guarantee you’ll make it rain threes like Steph and Klay, the ASICS Gel Lyte V “Splash City” is mean nonetheless. Black, blue and white make up the outsole of these all Dubs everything sneakers. The team’s colors come to life in the upper that mixes suede, nubuck and tumbled leather to perfection. Blue suede engulfs the toebox and heelcup while black nubuck provides a too-cool-for-school finish. Reflective, 3M hits along the sides bring out the gold accents. Because BAIT doesn’t play around, you can expect to find three sets of extra laces with the ASICS Gel Lyte V “Splash City”.
The BAIT x ASICS Gel Lyte V “Splash City” collab releases April 11-12 via the brand’s pop-up shop. You can expect the official BAIT store to open with another Bay Area-inspired collab, but we’ll discuss that later. Any pairs left from the pop-up release will hit the BAIT online store afterward.
Peep the gallery above, and watch this Vine below of Steph Curry snap Chris Paul’s ankles like an old man from a game earlier this week. This loop NEVER gets old.
