2022 is off to a hot start, and while we knew January was going to bring the heat with new drops, announcements, and collaborations, we weren’t expecting the massive rollouts to start this early. Today, Reebok and BAPE announced their latest collaboration, which is an interesting and unique refresh of the Club C 85 and Instapump Fury.

While these two iconic brands have teamed up before (they have multiple other collabs under their belt), this capsule marks their first time updating the well-known Instapump Fury and third time designing a Club C 85.

By now you already know BAPE’s signature style—cutting edge Harajuku streetwear with elements of urban and goth. In the decades since their 1993 founding, they have emerged into a legendary, celebrity-desired brand renowned for their bold graphic designs and imprints.

This collection zones in on both BAPE and Reebok’s legendary styles, combining BAPE’s recognizable graphics and design sensibilities with Reebok’s foundation and heritage, giving fans a new take on the silhouettes we know and love.

The Club C 85 features several of its traditional design components blended with new details, including red and blue contrast stitching and the BAPE® STATM logo.

On the Reebok side, The Instapump Fury showcases an exclusive combination of BAPE® CAMO—a mix of the streetwear label’s COLOR CAMO and 1ST CAMO prints.

Cool, right? Well that’s not all. This Reebok x BAPE® campaign creative also features some recognizable names as their stars. Bryson Tiller, label mates Ryan Trey and Nia Sultana, and Bryson’s longtime collaborator, Ro.Lexx are the leaders of this campaign, and are all photographed rocking both silhouettes along with BAPE apparel.

Both the Club C 85 ($150) and Instapump Fury ($200) will be available globally in BAPE STORE locations and via their official website, starting Saturday, January 15 and worldwide on Reebok and select retailers on Friday, January 21 at 10AM ET.

So you now that you have a sneak peek, you can start getting ready for the big drop. In the meantime you can follow BAPE and Reebok for more info and updates.
