Bape's latest collaboration is going to be a capsule collection with British footwear company Dr. Martens. The Japanese streetwear brand has created its own unique interpretations of two of the more recognizable Dr. Martens silhouettes, the 8-eye 1460 boot and 3-eye 1461 shoe. This marks the first time both of these well-known brands have collaborated.
Fours pairs will release in total, black and oxblood versions of each model. While both of these color schemes are common practice for the footwear brand, Bape's unique touch to the collab can be seen across the uppers as well. All four pairs are embossed with Bape's signature camouflage pattern across the entirety, giving the silhouettes an updated look from the streetwear icon.
Each pair sports Dr. Martens staples like the AirWair sole and yellow contrast stitching and both of the 1460s remain true to the original formula with AirWair pull tabs on the ankle. While the footwear is certainly the highlight of the collection, both brands also collaborated on apparel that fuses Bape's camo print with various Dr. Martens logos and branding, resulting in graphic T-shirts, a tote bag, and work shirts.
Look for this Bape x Dr. Martens collaboration to hit shelves on Jan. 27. Apparel will be available exclusively at Bape stores and online, while the footwear will be released at select Dr. Martens retailers as well. Retail pricing has not yet been announced.
