After months of anticipation, Adidas Originals has announced the official release details for its latest collaboration with famed Japanese streetwear brand A Bathing Ape (aka Bape).
Consisting of sneakers and apparel, this Bape x Adidas Originals collab is highlighted by two colorways of the NMD, one of the lifestyle division’s most talked-about sneakers of 2016. Here, the old-meets-new running-inspired sneaker gets covered in Bape’s signature camouflage print in both green- and black-based patterns.

Between NMD devotees and Bape fanatics — two of the most passionate subsets in the sneaker and streetwear communities — this collaboration may very well end up being one of the quickest sellouts of the year.
