One of the best BAPE x adidas sneakers yet.

For well over a decade, A Bathing Ape and adidas have been releasing some of the most hyped collaborations that the sneaker world has ever seen, and the same can certainly be said about the brand new BAPE x adidas Superstar "Black." While Nigo has reworked this classic '60s silhouette multiple times in the past, we think that this might be his best version yet - so let's take a second to check it out.

Featuring a slick black and white color scheme, this Superstar bears a striking resemblance to the Japanese streetwear brand's very own Skullsta model. Crafted from leather, BAPE's legendary Shooting Star motif glides through the laterals, while adidas' iconic Three Stripes feature across the medials. Gold foil detailing offers a premium look and feel, while the world-famous Ape Head portrait is stamped onto the tongue to cement the partnership. Of course, you can't talk about this sneaker without mentioning the metallic gold "BAPE" dubrae as well as the classic Shelltoe that gives off a very vintage vibe.

Releasing on November 10th, the A Bathing Ape x adidas Superstar "Black" will no doubt sell out within minutes of dropping, but it'll be available here at Ox Street over the next few days. Let us know if you'll be going for these, and in related news, Nigo recently designed adidas Japan's national football team collection!
