Just like the previous lineup that featured eight of NBA’s favorite teams including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Huston Rockets and the Portland Trailblazers, the new release will include 2019 NBA Champions the Toronto Raptors, along with two new iterations for the Lakers and Rockets.
Each Swingman jersey has been dressed in vibrant signature BAPE camo in a variety of colors such as gold, purple and red, while an APE Head, NBA logo, and the team’s respective insignia finishes off the looks of each exclusive jersey. In lieu of BAPE’s Ape Head, Toronto opts for its classic Raptors logo seen during the mid-90s when Vince Carter reigned supreme.
The Los Angeles Lakers item will be exclusively available at BAPE’s LA flagship, while the Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets items will be available at all BAPE locations and bape.com. The full collection drops this Saturday, October 5.
In related drops, BAPE readies second Formula 1 collaboration.
