adidas bape history Super Ape Star: History of Bape x adidas Originals

adidas Originals just announced a new partnership with Japanese streetwear legend Nigo. It’s the latest in a line of key signings for the Brand with the Three Stripes, but not quite as big a surprise as a convert like Kanye West. We say that because stretching back for about half as long as Nigo’s keystone brand, A Bathing Ape, has existed, it has collaborated with adidas and created some of the most sought-after sneakers in the burgeoning hobby.

adidas Originals Announces Partnership with Nigo of BAPE

adidas nigo partnership adidas Originals Announces Partnership with Nigo of BAPE

The adidas team continues to bring all sorts of star power on board. Following up on the Kanye West partnership, adidas Originals has now announced a long-term partnership with Nigo, the streetwear maven who built BAPE from the ground up. There are no details regarding exactly what will become of the collection, but given past sneaker collaborations between the three-stripes brand and the Japanese designer/tastemaker, this newfound partnership could mean footwear releases down the road. The collection will apparently launch in Fall/Winter 2014, meaning that the latter half of this year looks to be pretty stacked with collab efforts between this and the Kanye range. Also interesting is the fact that Pharrell, who has worked with Nigo no small number of times, has been flying the adidas flag as of late. Let us know in the comments if you’re excited for this partnership and stay tuned to Sneaker News to see if we will see sneaker releases down the road.

The Swizz Beatz x Reebok relationship is not your typical celebrity endorsement one. Swizz’s role is much deeper than that, and his constant appearances in Reebok footwear of all sorts help to solidify that notion (Not to mention he’s also got wife Alicia Keys on the bandwagon). He’s helping rep the brand during tradeshow season, and even stopped by Reebok’s barbershop buildout at Agenda in Las Vegas with the AAPE by A Bathing Ape x Reebok Insta Pump Fury on feet.

A History of Kanye West’s Sneaker Collabs

February 10th, 2014 by | 34 comments

kanye west sneaker history 10 A History of Kanye Wests Sneaker Collabs

Today marks the ten-year anniversary of the release of The College Droupout, the debut album from Kanye West that would be a precursor to a decade of dominance from the Chicago rapper. Yes, his name was known prior thanks to the stray mixtapes and production credits, but it was Dropout that introduced Kanye the character; the multifaceted music man who was equal parts brilliant and boisterous. As he’s been prone to reminding the general public of late, Kanye’s aims have always been broader than just music. The sneaker world in particular has felt his force-from that obscure Nike Air 180 that wore his bear logo to the frenzy of yesterday’s surprise Red October release.
