BAPE (A Bathing Ape) a popular Japanese clothing brand, has had its popular motif placed on the Adidas NMD XR1. Creator of the custom look, John Ruiz has taken the “1ST CAMO SHARK” pattern on the upper of the Adidas NMD XR1. Ruiz removed the cage of the Adidas NMD XR1 and looped black laces through the heel for a unique touch. The “1ST CAMO SHARK” pattern is all hand painted which is very impressive coming from a mechanical engineering student.
