So far, the adidas 3ST.002 has been a part of one collaboration and one collection, both of which debuted this year. Back in late March, the Na-kel Smith x Fucking Awesome x adidas 3ST.002 hit the shelves at select retailers and retailed at a price of $110. This particular iteration of the laceless, midtop skate shoe featured completely plain White uppers that were made up of leather and mesh. In addition to have midsoles containing a Torsion system and perforated toes, this iteration was also equipped with translucent, Blue-colored rubber soles. Reportedly, the 3ST.002 will now be a part of another collaboration between adidas and BAPE.
adidas Skateboarding’s 3ST collection made its retail debut this very month on April 15th, and it included both the 3ST.001 and the 3ST.002. Collectively designed by professional skateboarders like Na-kel Smith, this iteration of the slip-on 3ST.002 ended up with quite a minimalist aesthetic. Its perforated, one-piece mesh uppers were once again plain White. Performance and tech features of the 3ST.002 include a breathable mesh inner lining, a TPU cage on each shoe and Vulcan soles, which in this case were made up of Gum Rubber. The 3ST.002 from the adidas 3ST collection ended up retailing at a price of $100.
According to the latest rumors, adidas and BAPE are reportedly working together on a Snow Boarding collection, which will include the 3ST.002 iteration seen at the very top of the post. However, the photo is merely a rendition of the actual sneaker created in Photoshop, but this is apparently how it will end up looking like. If that is the case, then it will be dressed up in a similar military-themed color scheme, including some Black-colored detailing, while also being covered in BAPE’s signature camouflage print. This collection will also include a snow jacket, slope trotter pants, and a tech hoodie.
There is actually plenty of time until this collection will make its retail debut, so actual photos might of the outfits and the sneaker will likely surface in the coming months. This BAPE x adidas 3ST.002 is scheduled to arrive at retailers in October 2018.
