An unlikely partnership between JJJJound and BAPE gives birth to a no frills BAPE STA Low.
In what might be one of the most unexpected collaborations of all time, JJJJound has teased an upcoming project with BAPE. While the two brands couldn't be any more different, the collaboration effortlessly blends JJJJound's minimalistic approach with BAPE's Japanese streetwear aesthetic.
The pairs canvas is BAPE's BAPE STA Low. In a departure from the over the top patent leather and camo patterns that made the BAPE-STA what it is today, Justin Saunder's team opts for a simple neutral white and grey premium tumbled leather upper. BAPE's iconic “STA" star logo in grey leather adorns the outer and inner side panels of the sneaker. The white and grey color palette used in the upper extends through the white midsole and the sneaker's grey outsole. To round out the collab, the sneaker will will come in special packaging featuring BAPE's camo print juxtaposed by JJJJound's logo on the side of the box.
No official release date has been announced for the JJJJound x BAPE BAPE STA Low. With that said, it is expected to release sometime in 2022 via JJJJound and BAPE's website. For updates on upcoming sneaker releases be sure to follow us on Twitter and download the mobile app.
