Where to Buy the BAIT x Attack On Titan x adidas UltraBOOST
From simple tees to their sneaker collaborations, BAIT has shown a strong desire to include all avenues of pop culture in its works. Recently — for their footwear link-ups, at least — there has been a clear focus on Japanese media, with the likes of Cowboy Bebop and Initial D central to their projects. Now, they’re looking for something a little more contemporary yet equally relevant: Attack On Titan.
Now that Part 2 of Attack On Titan’s final season has aired its finale, the anime adaptation is coming very close to its end, with nine chapters left to adapt. In commemoration (and to avoid any big spoilers), BAIT draws from much further back in the story, when Eren Yeager, the series’ MC, went up against the Colossal Titan. This encounter is depicted across the insole of the capsule’s UltraBOOST as well as the accompanying skateboard, tote bag, and apparel.
Alongside the graphic-adorned sock liner, the above-mentioned UltraBOOST models its exterior after the Colossal Titan itself. Arguably one of the most memorable antagonists — as well as one of the earliest — the sixty-meter tall figure lacks any external skin, its tissues and muscles completely exposed. This serves as the core inspiration for the design, with the shoe’s upper blending together a dark, blood-red base with bone-colored detailing along the laces, Three Stripes, lining, and sole.
