There are times when the Super Bowl goes exactly the way you might expect it to; Bears 46 – Patriots 10 or 49ers 55 – Broncos 10, for instance. There are other times, where the events of football’s biggest stage are something that nobody sees coming. Garo Yepremian’s blocked field goal/attempted pass, Thurman Thomas’s missing helmet, David Tyree’s helmet catch, Malcolm Butler’s goal line interception, The Philly Special touchdown pass to Nick Foles, you get the idea. The point is, that when it happens on the grandest possible occasion, the unexpected becomes the unforgettable.
In this spirit, Adidas have teamed up with streetwear legends BAPE, to celebrate the absolute biggest of big games with a limited edition capsule collection.
Just as the Giants disrupted the Bills’ K-Gun offense in Super Bowl XXV with their unorthodox, two man defensive line, Adidas and BAPE are playing it anything but conservative on this gridiron collaboration. That means, instead of the usual streetwear basics, the iconic BAPE camouflage pattern has been applied to a range of performance football gear: cleats, tech hoodies, jerseys, compression tights, and sleeves, gloves, even a helmet and regulation size ball.
There’s one other thing that the Adidas x BAPE football capsule and the big game have in common. You need to seize the opportunity when it’s in front of you, because, no matter how promising the future looks, it’s never guaranteed that you’ll get another shot at it if you don’t.
