BAIT is celebrating the late Bruce Lee’s 75th birthday with an exclusive collaboration alongside Onitsuka Tiger and now we have a look at the first sneaker from the endeavor. Coming in the form of the classic Corsair (the kicks Lee famously donned in Game of Death), the “Jeet Kune Do” takes cues from the philosophy of the iconic martial artist. Coupling luxurious black suede with premium navy leather, the design pays homage to the classic kung fu uniform donned by Lee and many grand masters alike as it sports an engraved dragon motif throughout. Finally, gold debossing decorates both heels as Lee’s iconic “Kickman” logo appears.
Finished with custom insoles and three sets of laces, the “Jeet Kune Do” will be available at BAIT’s Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco and Hong Kong pop-up locations November 27 for $120 USD. Those interested in purchasing the kicks online can enter a raffle here.
Stay tuned for an in-depth look at the collaboration’s second pair of kicks — a “Legend” edition of the Colorado — this Friday, November 20.
