Apart from the Air Jordan releases 2019 arriving later this month, this BAPE x NEIGHBORHOOD x adidas Collection will also hit the shelves. Of course, this will not be the first time that adidas has collaborated BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD. However, this is the first collaboration involving all three of these brands. A BAPE x adidas Ultra Boost Collection consisting of two different camo iterations made its retail debut earlier this year on February 2nd, each retailing at a price of $200. Last year, NEIGHBORHOOD was a part of another three-way collaboration that included adidas and BBC, which revolved around the EQT Basketball ADV.
BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD appear to have dressed up the adidas NMD R1 STLT in an earthy color scheme. The Primeknit uppers of this co-designed iteration feature an overlaying pattern consisting of abstract swirls all over. Another lightning bolt-shaped pattern can be spotted on the lateral sides above its midsoles and it is covered in a bright Yellow hue, adding some contrast. Its BOOST midsoles are plain White, with two contrasting EVA pods, one of which features “adidas” branding. BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD also seem to have redesigned its lacing system to have a cover on top with “NBHD,” “BAPE” and “東京” (TOKYO) printed over it.
In the case of the adidas POD-S3.1, BAPE and NEIGHBORHOOD have split each shoe vertically to sport a varying color scheme. The lateral sides of each shoe are covered in a dark camo print, while the medial sides are dressed up in a lighter, subtle camo print. adidas’ “Three Stripes” can also be spotted on the medial sides, while the lateral sides feature BAPE’s signature “eyes” and “shark teeth” patterns. Furthermore, BAPE’s “Ape Head” logo and NEIGHBORHOOD’s “Skull and Crossbones” logo are present on the heel tabs. Similarly, its BOOST midsoles are also plain White and its rubber outsoles are entirely covered in Black.
