Everyone’s favorite teddy bear of the 21st century, Ted has joined forces with sneaker boutique BAIT and Reebok to create a collaboration for the ages.
Known as the BAIT x Ted2 x Reebok Instapump Fury “Happy Ted”, the classic Reebok silhouette has essentially been converted into a teddy bear. The shoe comes in a light tan suede and shearling upper that is mean to resemble Ted. A nappy suede is also present on the toe. A “Happy Ted” patch can be found on the heel of the left shoe while a BAIT patch shows up on the right shoe. Other details include dual branded tongue and heel tabs, a shearling sockliner, a white midsole and gum outsole.
The BAIT x Ted2 x Reebok Instapump Fury “Happy Ted” will release on November 14th in-store at all BAIT locations as well as online at baitme.com for $170 in sizes 3-13. If you’re not near a BAIT store you can also enter the online raffle here. In addition to the sneaker, BAIT and Reebok will also be releasing a “Happy Ted” capsule featuring matching apparel and collectibles.
I’ve only seen the first Ted movie and I thought it was pretty funny. This collaboration I think was a surprise to everyone and is something that can be worn by kids, women and men, which is a good thing. I don’t think I’d be willing to wear a shoe that is meant to look like a teddy bear though.
