Over the course of the last week, we’ve brought you word on the Roadblock 710 and Cobra Commander 574, two new pairs of G.I.Joe themed shoes being offered through a collaboration between BAIT and New Balance. As noted in both articles, both the Roadblock Boots and Cobra Commander Sneakers were offered to the public via a raffle that allowed the winner to purchase either both pairs, or each individually.
Rounding out this news piece comes word that the The BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance pack launches in-store on Saturday, June 20 at all five BAIT locations. The first few customers who purchase both shoes together at the BAIT Diamond Bar, LA, Seattle, and San Francisco locations will receive a limited-edition, handmade military crate to house the shoes.
Only 30 G.I. Joe and 30 Cobra crates were produced in total, so only a very limited number will be available at each of the four locations listed. Those who receive a crate will also be given the guaranteed priority-to-purchase for the next two installments of the BAIT x G.I. Joe x New Balance collaboration when they are released.
You can check out more on this story after the break.
