After delivering several noteworthy collabs this year including its most recent New Balance 990v4 release in October, JJJJound is now looking ahead to 2022 by teasing a new sneaker project with A Bathing Ape.

A newly shared image from the Montreal-based imprint’s Instagram account shows a first look at the JJJJound x A Bathing Ape Bapesta that’s scheduled to release during the first half of next year. Both entities bring forth a minimalistic design approach to the collab with a premium white leather upper, while subtle grey accents dress the “Bapesta” branding on the tongue, the star logo on the sides, the heel tab, and outsole. The shoe is accompanied by special packaging that features Bape’s signature ABC camo in grey printed throughout the shoebox along with JJJJound branding stamped at the center.

As of now, a specific release date for this JJJJound x A Bathing Ape Bapesta collab has yet to be announced but keep it locked to Sole Collector for updates.

UPDATE (02/01): After sharing a teaser in December, JJJJound has officially confirmed that its collaboration with Bape is launching this week. In addition to the already previewed Bapesta collab, the capsule will include a co-branded Bape hoodie and t-shirt. The JJJJound x Bape collection will release this Saturday, Feb. 5 at 12 p.m. ET at JJJJound.com and at Bape stores globally.
