BAPE x Dr Martens

4 Jan

The classic Japanese streetwear brand have collaborated with boot makers Dr. Martens on a new line of saddle shoes.

I wish i was a man, so i could rock these bad boys. I know that Nigo’s A Bathing Ape is interested in reinterpreting and working together with everything and everyone that is all American. But it seems, as this latest BAPE collaboration shows, that Nigo is also into a quintessentially British aesthetics. Together with Tet from fellow Japanese fashion brand WTAPS, Nigo have worked with legendary boot brand Dr Martens on an exclusive heritage style. The result, a saddle shoe, was made popular by teenage ‘Bobby Soxers’ in the 50s, and the shoe – which now comes in three different colour combinations – has been given a new lease of life in BAPE’s Ursus line.
