UPDATE: Additional stockists poppin' up left right and centre. Get frothin' on the fresh imagery ahead of them dropping tomorrow, August 9, at Packer Shoes also.
Is Bape back? Did it ever fall off? It all depends on who you ask, but it's tough to deny Japanese streetwear kingpins killed it with Puma recently (especially that soccer shirt) and they have now fashioned something special with Reebok. Sure, the design is not unexpected – you know Bape is gonna come with the camo, but the execution is on-point. The khaki toes, the black mesh underlay, the desert camo Pump bladder exo-skeleton – it's pretty dope. It's all apart of the Reebok Pump Fury's 20th anniversary, of course. We're not sure what communal thinking went on with Mita Sneakers for them to get in the title too, but we do know they're definitely stocking it come August 9.
