Dr. Martens & BAPE SS2011 Shoe Collab

A BATHING APE linked up with Dr. Martens to produce an exciting shoe collaboration for Spring Summer 2011. The Dr Martens shoe will feature as part of the BAPE URSUS range, designed by long term BAPE collaborator “Tet”, Creative Director of Japanese brand WTAPS. The collaboration is based on a vintage saddle shoe from the Dr. Martens back catalog, revived and produced with a characteristic BAPE twist, featured in three exclusive colorways; grey/burgundy, grey/black, and grey/navy.

The saddle shoe was originally popularized by ‘Bobby Soxers’, the original trend-setting teenagers in 50’s America and so exudes a retro collegiate feel that complements the current trend for Letterman jackets and the Ivy League look. Bobby Soxers commonly wore the shoes in a white/blue color combination and were later adopted by ‘Greezers’ in harder colorways. This new style for Doctor Marten’s is being launched exclusively with BAPE URSUS prior to Dr. Marten’s releasing their own colorways and styles later in the season.

Priced at £230, stockists include and BAPE LONDON store.
