In a combination of titans, Japanese streetwear brand BAPE and skate sneaker brand Vans have met for their first ever collaboration. With a double down emphasis on street culture and self-expression, the first collection focuses on Vans most iconic silhouettes: the Sk8-Hi 38 DX and Authentic 44 DX.
The SK8-Hi 38 DX arrives in classic form, albeit with a twist from the iconic designs of BAPE. Signature camo print is featured across the body, with hints of black and white found elsewhere. A custom camo tongue label and red waffle outsole add a splash of flair to the extravagant design.
Like the former, the Authentic 44 DX comes with a camo twist. The camouflage print and Vans ripstop canvas converge for a far more low-key aesthetic.
