Described as an evolution of the 'Vanquish,' the Model-002 'Guardian' was conceptualized and designed to withstand extreme conditions of a dystopian world. The shoe's body features a reinforced metal wire mesh with custom camouflage print visible underneath, while a rugged weather-treated nailhead suede frames the upper. Reflective 3M hexagon print over micro-metal mesh highlights the toebox, side panels and heel. Durable, breathable performance mesh lines the interior. A simplified, formstripe, speckled midsole and orange accents add detail. Round waxed laces come in black, orange and olive.
The BAIT x ASICS BASICS Model-002 'Guardian' will be available for $150 in-store at both BAIT Diamond Bar and BAIT Orange County on Saturday, January 25. You can register for the online release here.
