A Bathing Ape may not be quite as old as the Adidas Superstar, but it’s fair to say that, during its time on the scene, the Japanese label has established a lasting legacy. So it’s also fair to say that BAPE’s signature camouflage patterns, applied to the shell-toed icon is a major coming together. This time around, the Superstar 80v, a slimmer version of the silhouette, as opposed to the chunkier, fat laced models that gained widespread popularity from the late 80s onwards, is outfitted in premium leather bedecked with BAPE camouflage, and contrast gold branding details. It’s a formula that has proved successful for both brands in the past. Previous releases have been, to say the least, highly sought after, so don’t let the latest chance to get your hands on a pair of these slip by.
