'The Colorado Eighty-Five 6,200 FT' is a hybrid running shoe designed by Bait and Akomplice. This shoe takes inspiration from the Rocky Mountain ranges and yet, still rings true to Akomplice, given the name '6,200 FT.' This number represents the exact elevation of the company's originators' hometown in Colorado.

The shoes themselves sport braided hiking laces and reinforced ripstop panels. The color panel is true to Colorado with a yellow, blue, white and red exterior. These colors represent the Colorado flag and environmental colors: blue for the sky, yellow for the sun, red for the soil and white for snowy mountains.

These shoes are not just running shoes, but a patriotic symbol for anyone representing Colorado wishing to show their pride on a courageous hiking trail.
