After seeing a rendering in November, Adidas has officially announced its upcoming BAPE collaboration centered around the DAME 4.
Here’s a first look at the DAME 4 BAPE collection, designed around NBA star Damian Lillard’s love for the Japanese streetwear brand.
“I became even more inspired by the brand when I visited BAPE®’s store in Japan. From that point, I knew I wanted the first major collaboration for my signature line to be with BAPE,” Dame said.
BAPE puts its spin on the NBA star’s latest signature model, taking inspiration from their iconic Shark design along with its distinctive decorative elements.
The DAME 4 is offered in green, black and red, each colorway features BAPE CAMO on the upper, with the Shark tooth design displayed along the full-length BOUNCE midsole. WGM, symbolizing World Gone Mad, and the classic tiger “a” icon are featured on the ankle piece. YKWYTII, Damian’s “You Know What Time It Is” moniker is printed on the heel tape, while adidas, BAPE® and Damian’s logos are also highlighted.
The Adidas DAME 4 BAPE collection drops Feb. 16 at adidas’ 747 Warehouse event in Los Angeles for $150 USD.
