Saucony and BAIT Collaborate on Vegan Shoe Line

The shoe brand is working with the style-centric LA vendor to save animals and raise money for charity.

Los Angeles sneaker boutique BAIT is teaming up with Saucony to release the “CruelWorld” Shadow Original vegan shoe. These cruelty-free kicks feature a midnight blue material and off-white Saucony swish on the side, while the insoles are made from cork trees—a recyclable and biodegradable material that wicks moisture and conforms comfortably to the feet. “We wanted to create a shoe that can carry and communicate a positive message,” says BAIT owner Eric Cheng to Complex Sneakers. “We thought the concept and Saucony’s vegan capabilities were a perfect match for this project.” Part of “CruelWorld” profits will go to A Place Called Home, a non-profit organization in South Central LA that promotes creativity, nutrition, and education in at-risk youth. The Shadow Original will hit stores on December 2.
