BAIT x Adidas Skateboarding Stan Smith VULC “Happy”

April 11, 2016 |
BAIT and Adidas Skateboarding bring a provocative material story to the Stan Smith Vulc, dubbed “Happy.” The upper is dominated by natural hemp that has been heat pressed with a stoned-out  pattern. The process of heat pressing was a way to celebrate the burning of hemp, which in effect creates the stoned pattern. The heel is made of hairy chunk suede that possess a familiar nug-like texture in a reminiscent Stan Smith green. The trefoil logo hit has been chosen to stand on its own with its three leaves. A heel tab and Tongue label were inspired by the medicinal nature of hemp and how it is now considered a pharmaceutical drug. Cork footbeds also feature a familiar pharmaceutical sticker that express the side effects of the light weight Stan Smith Vulc. Cork was used specifically because they come from “trees.” Stash pockets are on the interior of the tongue to help you hold any small items. Laces come in three options of Stoned-out hemp laces, black laces, and white laces.
