Despite churning out recent brand collaborations with the likes of Palace, Size? and Billionaire Boys Club, Adidas haven't let the quality slip.

Their latest partnership with streetwear mavericks BAPE offers a capsule collection of trainers and outerwear which mixes playful and stylish elements from both brands. A Bathing Ape, as they are formally known, are an iconic Tokyo imprint with a similar ethos to Adidas when it comes to classic sportswear with urban style.

Their FW16 Collection together includes trainers have all the hallmarks of classic Adidas, from prominent three stripes to the cushioning boost sole. Fun detailing from BAPE includes Japanese lettering on the heel tab of shoes, green and black camouflage prints and a monster face on the zip-up hood of the down jacket. Scarily, it somehow works.
