adidas Originals and BAPE®, two titans of the streetwear and sneaker universe, once again celebrate the 30th anniversary of the iconic BAPE® brand with a fresh take on the classic Stan Smith silhouette. This partnership, a fusion of heritage and contemporary design, unveils the BAPE® Stan Smith.
The newly introduced BAPE® Stan Smith sneaker is not just a nod to the past, but a leap into the future of sustainable fashion. Crafted with a keen eye for detail, these sneakers feature a synthetic leather upper made from 60% recycled materials, demonstrating a commitment to eco-conscious manufacturing. The design, an interplay of subtlety and boldness, features a tonal embossed and embossed SOLID CAMO pattern, a signature BAPE® motif that seamlessly blends the essence of both brands.
To further elevate the aesthetic, co-branded gold foil details adorn the shoes, adding a touch of luxury to the playful design. The sneakers are crowned with gold “30th Anniversary” lace jewelry, a subtle yet striking addition that celebrates BAPE®’s three decades of influence in streetwear. To complete the package, each pair is packaged in a custom co-branded box, making it a collector’s dream.
The campaign for the BAPE® Stan Smith sneaker is as inventive as the shoe itself. Set against the backdrop of an oversized, cartoonish claw machine, the campaign captures the playful spirit and exclusivity of these limited-edition sneakers. This imaginative presentation not only highlights the unique design of the shoes, but also pays homage to the rich history of Japanese streetwear, a culture that is deeply ingrained in BAPE®’s DNA.
Available in two contrasting colorways, black and white, the BAPE® Stan Smith sneaker offers versatility and style for both men and women with a passion for footwear.
The BAPE® Stan Smith sneaker is currently available at CONFIRMED, select retailers and bape.com.
