Here’s a random bit of news for your Hump Day. BAIT and New Balance are collaborating on a G.I.Joe themed shoe named “Roadblock”. The New Balance 710 Roadblock is also being raffled off by BAIT on their site, so if you’re interested, head on over and sign up (FYI – you’ll need to register for a BAIT account).
As noted on Sneaker News, BAIT is a West Coast shop that also offers toys & figurines and has a history of partnerships with labels like kidrobot. From Sneaker News –
At the core of this three-way partnership is the New Balance H710 boot designed with a military-themed aesthetic and the G.I. Joe colors of red, white, and blue. Battle-ready materials like wolverine suede and ballistic nylon are used for the upper construction to mirror the spirit of Roadblock, the artillery expert and all-around bad-ass for the G.I. Joe squad. The BAIT x New Balance H710 “Roadblock” will be available exclusively at BAIT on June 20th in-store and online (apply for a raffle here), with an MSRP of $120.
We’ve mirrored a few images here for you to check out, but there’s plenty more included in the source article. What do you think? Are these boots something you’d pick up? Sound off on the HissTank.com forums!

The timing seems odd. A couple of years ago would've made some sense, but now? Regardless, while I think NB is an awesome company that makes great shoes right here in the U.S. (which is why they're pricier than many competitors), that's one ugly shoe I won't be buying.
Check out the Cobra Commander 574s! Now these I like!
Mr Hebime says
I like the CC 574s, but they would've been more appealing to me if the Cobra symbol was painted red.
LOL! Yeah, it's too much of a hassle, no one should sign up for the raffle.
