BAPE and UNDFTD have been working with adidas originals on opposite sides of the world since the respective launches of both seminal streetwear brands. with unique perspectives - largely shaped by their home cities of Tokyo and Los Angeles - the merging of the two streetwear heavyweights for adidas has them creating three Consortium shoes, continuing the growth of a partnership that has already spawned some classic pieces.
The union brings a strong army influence done tastefully using BAPE's signature camouflage print, blocks of khaki, taupe and off white, the occasional splash of bright colour, and special gold leaf detailing on suede – a rare execution. Two favourite adidas styles have been given the midas touch: the Campus and ZX 5000 and as always for Consortium, premium materials are used throughout, such as super soft leather and suede.
The ZX 5000 and the black Campus 80s will drop April 20th 12.00 CET in store at Sneakersnstuff Stockholm. If we have any pairs left after the weekend they will be available online during the day April 22nd (no set time).
