After a year, Bape and New Balance are set to release a twin-shoe pack. As a follow-up to their Bape x New Balance 2002R, the duo has applied a similar design approach to their 57/40 which comes in two colorways, one muted and the other one is bolder.
Each shoe carries its own distinct look. With each tongue of the shoe carrying either a New Balance or a Bape logo and shark teeth at the heel, the shoe can be recognized as a collaboration piece from eyes far away.
The durable yet luxurious material used for both pairs makes them incredibly sturdy and chic. One of the pairs carries a bold, vibrant set of colored panels on a white-colored mesh base. The suede and leather material comes overlapping each other in purple, blue, orange, and pink colors. Contrasting this vivid pair, the other one is saturated in monochromatic gray, black and white shades.
