It's not every day that you see a G.I. Joe-themed sneaker release, but our friends over at BAIT have made it happen. They've put together two toy-themed sneakers with New Balance that look good enough to have us all reliving our childhood memories in style, which isn't an easy task at all. The drop is so thorough that we've decided to make it our Sneaker of the Week.

The New Balance 710 and New Balance 574 represent the forces of good and evil as they play the characters of Roadblock and Cobra Commander, respectively. The former gets a dusty tan camo print suede and mesh upper with a speckled blue outsole and laces to match while the latter gets a blue upper with an embossed snakeskin print and red accents. If you remember the cartoon, they are especially dope in translating the theme of the characters. Even if you don't recall the show, the colorways are still fresh.

The coolest part of this release is that it is a perfect intersection of toys and fashion and they can speak to both markets independent of one another. If you’re into either or both models from the BAIT x GI Joe x New Balance pack, they’ll be available on June 20 at BAIT.
