The BAIT x Saucony "Cruel World" series of sneakers, which partners with organizations to bring about positive change in the world, is back. This time around the two are teaming up with Follow Your Dreams in the U.K., a charity supporting children with learning disabilities.
The shoe used for the project is the Saucony Shadow 5500, a hybrid of the brand's Shadow 5000 and 6000 models. The sneaker's theme is lunar, with moonscape detailing and NASA-style graphics turning up its "Giant Leaps" aesthetic.
The wait for these won't be long: the release date is set for Jan. 30, when the shoes will release at all seven BAIT locations for $120. Readers hoping to purchase the sneakers online can register for a raffle here.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the sneakers will go to Follow Your Dreams.
