The BAPE x adidas NMD R1 is part of the limited edition collaboration between A BATHING APE and adidas Originals. Back in the days, BAPE helped kickstart the whole hypebeast phenomenon – so it’s only fitting that the two brands should be collaborating on the NMD silhouette, one of the most coveted footwear models of recent times. The small collection was unveiled in July 2016 and contains two NMD R1 shoes, a Firebird track jacket, and a winterized ID96 down jacket. BAPE’s signature camouflage motif runs throughout all pieces, as expected.
In the US the full collection was released on November 26, 2016. While in Europe the full collection was released on January 12, 2017.
It’s one of the most rare collaborations and we are very pleased to get the NMDs so we can put them in our personal sneaker collection.
To complete the picture of the BAPE x adidas NMDs we
chose the black Supreme Bogo Hoodie, the Undefeated x Anti Social Social Club Dad Hat and the BAPE ABC Shark Bandana.
