Let's all admit it, A Bathing Ape is one of the most iconic streetwear labels to date and will continue to remain in the hearts of many fashion aficionados from all generations, yours included without a doubt. Nigo’s highly-coveted Japanese streetwear label that began in the late '90s quickly garnered an absurd level of hype throughout the years and have teamed up with every possible brand you can think of. Now reuniting once again with Germany's largest sporting goods, the hotly anticipated BAPE x adidas Superstar "White" and "Camo" launching to the masses very soon is made to turn heads, and here's absolutely everything that we know so far!
Recently unveiled by the aforementioned duo themselves, this upcoming Superstar is made to commemorate the 50th anniversary of adidas' 1969 classic basketball shell shoes and not only do we have a single iteration but also joined with another variant that resonates more with Nigo's fascination with military camouflage prints.
Taking a closer look at the helm of the collaboration, it comes dressed in crisp white and stark black leather panels. Elsewhere, the sportswear label’s instantly-recognisable three stripes adorn what would traditionally be both sides, only grace one instead while the other end flaunts the Japanese streetwear staple’s signature shooting star logo, overall giving the silhouette a mismatching style. If that's not enough, further alternating co-branding details feature on the tongue, insoles, and heel alike. The sneaker is then accentuated with shimmering gold accents that adorn labellings on the tongue and sidewalls, metallic lace dubrae upfront, complete with branded lace tips and cream-tinted midsole beneath the feet for a vintage aesthetic.
As for the counterpart, all are kept the same apart from overlays predominantly blacked-out while the rest showcase BAPE's signature camo prints in various colours randomly placed throughout.
As for a release date, the BAPE x adidas Originals Superstar 2021 is planned for an official drop day on February 27th via BAPE and their respective retailers worldwide. Let us know if you're grabbing one or both colorways, and in related news, another BAPE x adidas Superstar Collab Could Be in the Works!
