A Bathing Ape (Bape) has joined forces with Louis De Guzman for its next sneaker project.
After joining forces with Adidas last week to deliver a new iteration of the classic Superstar sneaker, the legendary Japanese streetwear label is now partnering with the Filipino-American visual artist to deliver a new iteration of the ever-popular Roadsta shoe.
For this project, De Guzman has applied his signature geometric abstraction aesthetic and the color palette that has become known for to the shoe. The gray-based upper is primarily constructed of leather and suede, with the classic star logo on the side has been updated with a special geometric pattern. Darker gray tones appear at the forefoot, the heel counter, and eyestay while a blue suede patch on the heel. Completing the look is a two-tone midsole with a visible air bubble on the heel.
The latest collection between De Guzman and Bape will include matching apparel pieces ranging from t-shirts, jackets, and hats. In addition to the apparel, Bape and De Guzman are also releasing a special Baby Milo figurine that’s limited to 300 pieces. The figurine features the beloved character sitting atop one of De Guzman’s “disruptor” shapes while surrounded in geometric shards.
