BAPE and UNDFTD merge once again with adidas for three limited edition Consortium shoes. The two streetwear heavyweights take on the adidas ZX 5000 and two Campus 80s with an injected army influence using BAPE’s signature camouflage print, blocks of khaki, taupe and off white, the occasional splash of bright color, and special gold leaf detailing on suede. The ZX 5000 and Campus 80s feature premium Consortium materials throughout such as super soft leather and suede. On the ZX 5000, technical details include an extended plastic wrap-around heel counter and a Torsion bar that can be seen in red on the outsole of the shoe. Both versions of the Campus 80s feature a fabric loop tag, the Consortium handshake logo on the back, and a vulcanized rubber outsole. The ZX 5000 will be available for $150 USD while the Campus 80s are available for $130 USD starting December 1st at Kith NYC stores.
UPDATE: For the Fall/Winter 2012 season, adidas partnered with streetwear brands UNDFTD and A Bathing Ape to create three Consortium footwear silhouettes. Due to unforeseen circumstances, adidas and its two partners have decided to delay the launch of the shoes. The new launch date will be in early 2013, with exact dates to be announced soon.
