As we traverse through the year 2023, we bear witness to two monumental anniversaries within the realm of streetwear. BAPE®, the iconic Japanese brand, celebrates three decades of its unapologetic boldness, while at the same time, it marks the 20th anniversary of its creative collaboration with adidas Originals. To commemorate these milestones, the two fashion powerhouses have decided to revisit an icon – the adidas Forum 84 Low – blending it with a touch of BAPE‘s distinctive style.
The adidas Forum 84 Low x BAPE collaboration reveals a sneaker reincarnated in a unique manner, where the old meets new, tradition meets revolution, and style meets functionality. The reimagined silhouette displays the fusion of the brands’ shared heritage, blending in elements that are quintessential to each – BAPE’s camo pattern and adidas‘ iconic design.
The newly introduced sneaker is an extraordinary reflection of the brand’s shared journey, crafted in signature camo leather. The meticulous attention to detail is evident in the gold tongue labels and matching gold lace jewels, a stamp that carries the legacy of both brands. The sneaker comes in two vibrant colorways – a bold green and a cool blue – encapsulating the fearless approach both brands have towards fashion and style.
This collaborative venture is announced with a grandiose marketing campaign. The campaign spotlights giant figures cavorting through the urban landscapes, capturing the playful essence of the collaboration. Adding to the allure, NBA star and BAPE® enthusiast, Jalen Green, fronts a series of images, elevating the hype surrounding the launch.
