Since the new year began, BAPE has been revitalized. Not only has the Japanese-based streetwear brand been working on more of its own in-house sneaker, the BAPE STA, but also been busy collaborating with brands like adidas. Now in collaboration with New Balance, the two power players look to formulate their magic on the New Balance 2002R.
BAPE’s collaborative touches are almost certain to involve outspoken flair, and the upcoming two iterations of the New Balance 2002R display the brand’s signature camo prints. The first pair sports the classic camo print atop a grey and red shark design, while the second pair features a monotone camo print atop a monochromatic shark design. Alluding to their efforts, the BAPESTA logo is printed alongside the vamp, perfectly intertwining with the leather underneath.
The BAPE x New Balance 2002R is set to arrive later this April. Until then, the team here at Nice Kicks will be sure to keep you updated when further information arrives.
