BAPE and Dr. Martens have teamed up in an unlikely collaboration to bring the BAPE x Dr. Martens collection. The partnership between the two clothing companies will result in the creation of two limited edition Dr. Marten signature silhouettes based on the 1460 boot and the 1461 shoe. The redesigned footwear will feature BAPE's signature ape head camo motif and will offer multiple colors for each silhouette.

Aside from the footwear, BAPE and Dr. Marten will be releasing matching apparel collections. Each collection will draw inspiration from one another and will feature graphic tees and long-sleeve button-down shirts. The BAPE x Dr. Martens collection marks the first collaboration between the two companies and appears to be Dr. Martens' attempt to break into a more hip-hop focused streetwear market. The collection will be released in late January and will be available at BAPE retailers around the world as well as select Dr. Martens locations in the US.
