Bait and Saucony have created something very clever and purposeful with the Saucony Shadow Original “Cruel World.” The shoe has been built around the concept of using no animal products, thus creating a pair of kicks made solely out of vegan materials. The build of the shoe shows off some vegan suede overlays that sit a top the canvas paneling along with some pretty sweet cork insoles.
“The BAIT Saucony Original Shadow shoe contains no animal products, by-products or derivatives.” This message alone goes a long way in what BAIT and Saucony are doing with this shoe as the key detail is to find non violent ways to create quality things. BAIT is taking a portion of the proceeds and donating it to A Place Called Home, a non-profit youth center in South Central LA, the day before Thanksgiving.
In-store reservations will be held November 22-24 at the flagship store in Diamond Bar, CA. An online registration form is available now – customers can fill out the form for a chance to receive a private link to purchase the shoes. The shoes are scheduled to be shipped out on December 2. – BAIT
