An In-Depth Look at the adidas "B-Sides" Project

adidas x Bape Superstar 80s (2003)

Released: August 8, 2011 (No U.S Release Confirmed Yet)

About the sneaker: The original version of this sneaker was released as the "Super Ape Star" and retailed in three makeups — camo, off white with black stripes, and all white (a fourth friends version came in all black) — and is considered by many to be one of the greatest sneaker collaborations of the past 10 years for its concept, timing, and packaging. For 2011, the B-Side takes a slightly different aesthetic — the Bathing Ape insignia is overlaid with a three-stripe chevron pattern as opposed to the original three stripes across the Bape head. The color makeup of this shoe is an off-white, designed to bring a modern aesthetic to the shoe, and the internal footbed interprets the classic Bape camo in blue.
