BAPE has become a global icon, and now, the Japanese streetwear label is continuing its successful drive. Vans and A Bathing Ape will soon release a major collection together, and the focus will be on the Sk8-Hi 38 DX as well as the Authentic DX 44 with BAPE's signature camouflage pattern.
The BAPE x Vans Authentic 44 DX is the most eye-catching variant from the pack. The low-top silhouette made of ripstop nylon focuses on the streetwear/military aesthetic with brown and olive tones. In between, you'll notice the signature logos from the Japanese label. The upper laces then contrast with white soles with black stripes and red insoles printed with co-branding.
Next to it is a black and white BAPE x Vans Sk8-Hi 38 DX. Round outlines on the large surfaces resemble the camouflage pattern, with the missing colours giving a different impression. Additionally, the signature white stripe adorns the sneaker, and the tongue labels have a hint of BAPE's standard camouflage pattern.
When Will the Big BAPE x Vans Collection Be Released?
In addition to the sneakers, BAPE and Vans are dropping matching apparel. The release will take place on 1 November in China. This will be followed by another drop on 13 November in other regions and on 29 November in BAPE stores, as well as in the BAPE online shop and at retailers. Over here, we'll get access on 30 November via vans.com.
