BAPE has maintained a long history with adidas, having worked together on multiple high-profile releases. In the past, the multi-national duo have placed their imprint on both classics, including the Campus 80 and ZX 5000, and newer icons like the Ultra Boost 4.0. Treading back into the former direction, the Japanese-brand has their eyes set on the most signature adidas silhouette of them all: the Superstar.
From just the box, it’s evident that this is a BAPE collaboration. The brand’s signature “Green Camo” finds itself on both the box and the leather upper, traversing both in their entirety. Off-white hues contrast the otherwise loud print, being seen on the Shell and the sole. White laces, Three Stripes branding, and heel finish off the iconic sneaker.
It’s expected that the BAPE x adidas Superstar “Green Camo” will release on May 8 for $150 through select retailers and adidas.com. With BAPE on a roll this year, it’s likely we’ll see more collaborative efforts in the mix. Until then, be sure to keep it locked to Nice Kicks for all of your sneaker information.
