It’s been almost a year since the release of the BAPE x New Balance 2002R and now the duo teams up again for the BAPE x New Balance 57/40. Unlike the 2002R, this New Balance release comes in three different colorways offering a grayscale, multi-color, and green outfit.
For the grayscale edition of the New Balance 57/40, BAPE adds style with their signature ABC camo on the New Balance “N.” Elsewhere grey and black suede make-up the overlays, while the base is made with a silver textile topped with grey mesh. More silver accents appear on the eyestay and the trim alongside the New Balance “N.” The heel counters are embossed with a silver BAPE Ape Head on one side and “A BATHING APE” on the other. Around the ankle collar, the sneaker has a Shark Face motif, a detail that was also seen on the 2002R. For final touches, the sneaker is finished with a white midsole and black outsole.
This greyscale BAPE x New Balance 57/40 will release on Saturday, July 30 via BAPE.com and all BAPE brick-and-mortar locations. The pair will retail for $160. Matching apparel items will also release on the same day. Keep it locked to our Sneaker Release Dates Calendar for updates.
