For the better part of the last year, A BATHING APE has been celebrating their 30th Anniversary with help from none other than the Three Stripes. And after turning the Stan Smith into a golf shoe back in October, the two are quickly reuniting for a more street-appropriate take on the tennis staple.
Not counting the lack of detachable kilties, A BATHING APE’s newest Stan Smith isn’t all that different from its predecessor. The colorway, for instance, closely resembles said pair, boasting white neutrals throughout the upper, cream across the midsoles, and the iconic ABC Camo along the heel tabs. It’s the details that help set the sequel apart: alongside gilding the BAPE logo on the tongue and the “STAN SMITH” branding on the profile, the leather base is embossed in a fashion that pays homage to the aforementioned pattern.
Enjoy a closer look at BAPE’s newest set of Stan Smiths via the official images ahead. These are confirmed to release on November 18th, likely doing so via the adidas CONFIRMED app.
