Available tomorrow (well, if you managed to score a pre-order) is the BAIT x Saucony Shadow Original “Cruel World 2″, a follow up to the popular original that dropped last year.  Using vegan approved and cruelty free materials, the first “Cruel World” was a unique offering in that the theme wasn’t so much for the look of the shoe itself but rather for the cause it represented.  Not only was it a environmentally-friendly shoe, BAIT also took proceeds from the sales of the “Cruel World” and donated $15,268 to a Southern California charity.

For the sequel, BAIT once again went with a similar theme in a black and red colorway.  From the smiley face to the cork insoles, if you loved the original then you can appreciate this new edition.  As for the charitable cause, this time around BAIT asked for suggestions from the fans and it was decided that they donate proceeds from the sales to the American Cancer Society.

Check out the slideshow above which also includes pics of the original “Cruel World”, which I happened to wear as I was taking pics of the sequel.  Total coincidence, I know…
