NIKE KD7 – “GOOD APPLES”

October 1, 2014 |

Available Saturday, October 4 / In-store at BAIT Diamond Bar / $150 USD
The Nike KD7 arrives in a fresh new colorway with roots in Kevin Durant’s approach to scoring. As detailed in this official video from the Swoosh, Durant’s mindset on shot selection is similar to picking apples: take the good ones and leave the bad ones. In terms of the colors, this translates to both red and pastel green accents working around a sleek black base. Features like the Hyperposite support, 180 Zoom unit, and lockdown midfoot strap are there to ensure Durant – and anyone else who laces up a pair – is properly equipped to take advantage of all those good opportunities. Phone orders will be accepted after 1 PM PST. Continue reading for more images of the release! Read More

COMMONWEALTH x ASICS GEL LYTE V “THE GEMINI”

September 28, 2014 |

Available Saturday, October 11 / In-store at BAIT Diamond Bar, BAIT Orange County, and BAIT LA / $160 USD
The popular Gel Lyte V has seen its share of great releases, but that has only encouraged Commonwealth to aim even higher with their new collaboration – specifically, for the stars. Their take on the GLV is inspired by the view you get while looking out into space, searching for the Gemini constellation. This is represented with a tonal, night sky blue upper that shifts between nubuck and leather. The applications of the materials flip between the two sides of the pair to create a subtle mismatched look. Two sets of laces are in the box, including a rope set that creates the illusion of stars sprinkled in the sky. Continue reading for more images. Read More

23 years ago, heralded Nike designers Tinker Hatfield and Eric Avar created the original Air Trainer Huarache.

The exoskeleton upper is done in pure white leather, providing the right amount of shielding and support for the neoprene bootie. Unique emerald and berry colors accent the white base in true ’90s style. Phone orders will be accepted after 1 PM PST (909.595.1712). Continue reading for more images! Read More
