Continuing BAPE®’s 30th anniversary celebrations, adidas Originals and the iconic Japanese brand present the highly limited Forum 84 BAPE® Low Triple-White sneaker. In commemoration of the hotly anticipated release and reaffirming adidas’ legacy as the original collaborator alongside BAPE®’s pioneering status in streetwear, the launch will play host to an innovative new drop format.
Typifying both brands’ dedication to timeless style and the relentless pursuit of excellence, the triple-white sneaker represents a refreshing contrast to its BAPE® 1ST CAMO predecessors, offered earlier this year. The Harajuku brand’s iconography is further integrated with a shooting star motif featuring on the lateral upper and “A Bathing Ape” embossed in silver metallic foil. Each pair is also equipped with an NFC chip, placed in the left tongue, which provides the owner with access to the Digital Certificate of Authenticity.
Reinforcing the innovative nature of the collaboration, the launch is supported by the adidas /// Studio (Three Stripes Studio) as a limited edition, product-linked NFT drop. Representing a new step for adidas, the launch will be the first-ever digital asset auction for the brand, in partnership with MoonPay, where only 100 NFTs (with 100 corresponding pairs of sneakers) will be available.
The adidas Originals x BAPE Fresh Forum NFT auction will begin on August 22nd via adidas COLLECT and will be open to everyone. The auction will last for 72 hours, closing on August 25th.
The 100 holders of the adidas Originals x BAPE Fresh Forum Access Pass NFT will be able to redeem the complementary physical pair of the adidas x BAPE Forum Low 84 Triple White sneakers and digital twin via adidas COLLECT on September 26th.
