BAPE and Vans Return With a Full Head-to-Toe Collaboration

BAPE has teamed up with Vans for their first-ever full-range apparel and footwear collaboration which is a unity between two iconic identities resulting in a reimagination of two classic sneaker silhouettes. The duo last partnered together in 2020 for a limited-edition Vans Custom lineup which was sold exclusively in China.

For their latest joint effort, the Japanese fashion brand has decked out the iconic Sk8-Hi 38 DX and Authentic 44 DX silhouettes with its signature motifs and patterns. The Sk8-Hi 38 DX received the brand’s ABC camo outline paired with the classic Vans black and white twist. A custom camo branding label embellishes the tongue while the whole design sits over a white midsole wrapping a statement red Waffle outsole. On the other side of the collection, the Authentic 44 DX meshes the BAPE’s original camo print with Vans’ ripstop canvas.

Accompanying the pairs is a co-branded hoodie showcasing the mingling of the two logos over a camo pattern background which will be available in both black and heather gray.

Look out for the Vans x BAPE collection to release on November 29 in-store at select retail locations and November 30 via Vans.

Elsewhere in footwear, Dune and APL collaborated on a sci-fi inspired collection.
