Continuing with the theme established by the first, 'Cruel World 2' features cruelty-free vegan materials such as vegas suede, canvas and natural hemp. The midsole, outsole and other components are also vegan-approved. A clean black, red and natural scheme was applied to the runner, which sits atop a unique speckled outsole. The tongue carries a disclaimer assuring wearers that the shoe is made of 'non-violent constructs,' while heel detail reinforces positive symbolism.
Last Thanksgiving, the 'Cruel World' Shadow Original helped raise $15,268 for A Place Called Home. After surveying the public, BAIT has decided that proceeds from 'Cruel World 2' will benefit the American Cancer Society.
The 'Cruel World' Shadow Originals 2 releases this Saturday, March 22 in-store at BAIT Diamond Bar and BAIT Orange County and online at baitme.com.
