Akomplice teams up with sneaker retailer BAIT to design a composition of the Onitsuka Tiger and the Colorado 85 model. This collaborative design is ripe with details that relate to their native state, The Colorado Eighty-Five 6,200 FT. The kicks also sport braided hiking laces and reinforced ripstop panels, which are always apropos when drawing inspiration from the Rocky Mountains. The nods to Colorado continue in the shoes color scheme of red, white, blue and yellow, which match Colorado’s state flag and are representative of Colorado’s environmental features: Blue symbolizes the clear blue Rocky Mountain skies, gold acknowledges the abundant Colorado sunshine, red represents Colorado’s red soil, and white symbolizes the snow on the mountains. Take a better look at the sneaker in the gallery below.
