BAPE and Timberland have enjoyed no shortage of collaborations in the recent months, ranging from EA Sports and adidas to RSVP Gallery, respectively. Now the duo have united with frequent collaborator UNDEFEATED for a remastered pair of 6” boots, adding subtle improvements that make for a shoe as covetable as it is wearable.
Though yesterday’s teaser revealed relatively little, it did reveal the color of the waterproof nubuck boot, which centers around a classic “Wheat” colorway. It has received several understated tweaks, however, primarily focusing on BAPE’s signature camo pattern. The upper panels boast a debossed 1ST CAMO detail, complete with hidden APE HEADS, tying into the camouflage-colored laces looped through the top eyelets (the latter executed in shiny gold metal). Co-branding appears on the tongue, insoles and hangtag, to underline the joint effort.
Mark your calendars for October 27, when the boots hit UNDEFEATED’s web store and physical stores, along with BAPE’s worldwide outposts.

With an appreciation for the classics, we have re-interpreted the iconic 6-inch wheat boot with an original BAPE 1st camo debossed upper. The 100% waterproof boot features a triple branded classic woven tongue label, BAPE camo laces, newly branded hang tag and insoles — as well as premium leathers, insulation and a durable lug outsole. // Available Saturday 10/27 exclusively at BAPE and UNDEFEATED Chapter Stores and Undefeated.com
