New Balance continues its strong form with another collaborative project with A Bathing Ape, laden with characteristic detailing as we’d expect. Ahead of the launch of their 2002R sneaker, the duo have also revealed a comprehensive apparel collection. The iconic “Cloud Camo” appears on New Balance’s newest smash-hit sneaker and carries over onto cargo shorts as well as a zipped hoodie featuring the recognisable shark face on the hood in typical Bape fashion. The capsule collection is available in two colorways – a muted grey, or tonal green – matching the footwear which has been teased and widely anticipated for months now.
The collaboration is set to release in Beijing on June 5th at the New Balance Grey concept store, with a global drop to follow. No price details are available, but going off last year’s Salehe Bembury x New Balance 2002R collaboration we can expect a retail price of approximately $150.
