Sneaker customizer SneakersNBonsai has taken to Instagram to show off his latest creation which sees the brand new adidas Iniki Runner BOOST draped in BAPE‘s iconic camoflouge. Selecting the red iteration of the silhouette, he covers the upper and tongue of the sneaker in APE heads using Jacquard products while leaving the red suede toebox and white BOOST unit in its original state. Adding details, the “INIKI” letters get a 3D treatment and because each pair is handmade, they are all slightly different from one another.
Pre-orders for the €370.00 EUR (~$400 USD) customs is now sold out on SneakersNBonsai’s web store. Fans can only hope that adidas and BAPE will come up with an official version in the future, they have joined forces to produce great collabs in the past.
