49. A Bathing Ape x KAWS "Chompers"

Released: 2006

Just when the Bapesta was starting to get to the "Oh, we've seen that" point, KAWS came in and remixed the silo into crazed madness. Jay-Z was photographed in them, and from there it went nuts...until Nigo made 40 different versions of the shoe and killed it. The original white, black, and grey versions were a must, though.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
KAWS has collaborated with A Bathing Ape, Undercover, Real Mad Hectic, Bounty Hunter, Supreme, Marc Jacobs, and Medicom Toys. That's IT?
