And-1 channels the five elements in Chinese philosophy for its latest performance basketball shoe, the Entourage Mid – and BAIT is one of the only US retailers to carry the special five-shoe set. The Five Elements Pack is inspired by the concept that all five forms of energy – Earth, Water, Metal (Gold), Wood, and Fire – flow together, much like the five players must do to be successful on a basketball court.
The pack features a dynamic and high-energy colorway for each of the five elements – blue for Water, electric green for Wood, yellow for Metal (Gold), orange for Fire, and purple for Earth. All five feature the Kanji symbol for the element on the heel and a unique texture on its synthetic overlays. Fused mesh panels provide lightweight breathability without sacrificing support, while a semi-translucent outsole with a herringbone traction pattern ensures top-notch grip and court feel.
All five shoes in the special Five Elements Pack are available now.
