One of Los Angeles’ prolific sneaker collab creators, BAIT is teaming with Hollywood studio Dreamworks to drop some sneakers with Diadora. The series has already created some animated classic inspired releases with footwear inspired by Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and Wally.
The latest addition to the collection is a Felix the Cat inspired edition of the Diadora N9000. Here is how BAIT describes the release…
…a combination of rich velvet suede, tumbled nubuck, and Augusta Italian leather, composed and constructed with pure quality that can only be made in Italy. The color combination of the black and white upper resemble Felix himself, while black speckles hit the rear midsole. Branding on the tongue is kept minimal with tonal debossings, but in contrast the insole features a special Felix the Cat artwork to tie in this Copa America inspired 3 way collaboration project. Lace options come with black waxed rope and white waxed rope laces, all specially packaged in the Felix the Cat designed box.
In addition to the kicks, the collection includes a “pin sets, apparel, headwear and collectible figures”. Just 500 pairs of the Diadora N9000 “Felix the Cat” will be available on Saturday, the 23rd of July for $220. Availability is exclusive to BAIT San Diego and the BAIT booth at Comic Con San Diego. If you can’t make it to sunny San Diego, you can add your name to the raffle (http://www.baitme.com/bait-dreamworks-diadora-n9000-felixthecat) for a chance to buy a pair.
