Footwear retailer BAIT joined forces with DreamWorks and Diadora N9000 for a limited edition series that's inspired by Felix the Cat, the famous silent film era feline.
The shoes are made in Italy and can only be attained by entering in a contest which allows a select few participants the chance to purchase a pair. The colorway of the shoes is fairly simplistic, with a black and white upper that's complemented by soles of the same shades.
Notes of gray interrupt the scheme subtly and speckles of black give the soles of the sneakers more variation as well. The Diadora N9000 logo is displayed near the heel of the shoes and the insole shows a vibrant illustration of Felix the Cat kicking a soccer ball.
