If there’s one thing that more than a few can agree upon, it’s the fact that April 20 is the holy day of smokery for those that love a certain green substance. BAIT and adidas Skateboarding happen to agree with this sentiment as well, and have decided to celebrate the unofficial holiday with a little tribute to the powers of hemp.
The new skate sneaker, appropriately titled “Happy 420,” features a hemp upper that has been heat pressed, along with a stoned-like pattern that serves as an emulation of burning hemp. Chunky suede appears on the heel, which mirrors the texture of cannabis buds, while the heel tab and tongue are designed with prescription labels in mind, serving as a reference to medicinal marijuana. The detailed, multilayered design employs multiple functionalities, including a small pocket on the underside of the tongue where you can keep your belongings.
Unfortunately, like most high-profile adidas releases, you must sign up for the official raffle starting April 15, in order to score an opportunity to buy a pair, which retail for $120. Stoners, skaters, and everyone in between, get a closer look at the BAIT x adidas Skateboarding “Happy 420” silhouette up top in the gallery now.
