BAPE x Dr. Marten

There was a time when the A Bathing Ape line drew hoards of fans around the corner of Greene Street in NY all hoping to get a hand on Nigo’s colorful sneakers and hoodies (Pharrell Williams’ support might have had a little something to do with that). Though the mass hysteria has subsided, the cult following is still going strong and loyal fans will be pleased to discover Nigo’s newfound love of British aesthetics in a collaboration with none other than Dr. Marten’s.


Nigo is working with fellow Japanese fashion brand WTAPS on what else but an exclusive, limited edition collection. The saddle shoe design, popularized by British teenagers in the 50s, will come in three different color combinations as part of the BAPE Ursus line. Everyone has a different association with their Dr. Marten’s but it usually doesn’t fall into the realm of English dandy. So kudos to BAPE for putting a new spin on an old classic. No need to line up but we definitely recommend calling in to reserve.
