In a world where the ordinary often reigns supreme, it’s always invigorating when the sneaker community is graced with something unique. I’ve grown weary of seeing the same recycled Jordan retros and Nike sneakers, making writing feel like a chore. This morning, however, Adidas and Bape breathed new life into my enthusiasm.
Celebrating Bape’s 30th anniversary and their twenty-year collaboration with Adidas, both companies are launching a special project — the Bape Adidas Campus 80s. This shoe isn’t just another release; it’s a tribute to decades of innovation and partnership.
The sneaker showcases a luxurious Brown suede upper, with Bape’s renowned star logo taking the place of the traditional Three Stripes branding on the sides. But the uniqueness doesn’t stop there. The tongues bear a special 30th Anniversary logo, and each shoe is adorned with celebratory Gold lace dubraes.
Co-branding on the heels and insoles, along with ‘A Bathing Ape’ imprinted on the lateral side, completes this commemorative design. As a final touch, this collaboration is presented in exclusive co-branded packaging, accompanied by bespoke accessories. With this collab, the extraordinary is truly within reach.

Resale Value: Bape X Adidas Campus 80s
With only two sales recorded thus far, we’ll have to use another method to come up with a reliable estimate of the resale value of the shoe. First let’s see what sellers are asking for it.
The chart above gives us a summary of the asking prices by size of the shoe. As you can see, most sellers are asking anywhere between $220 and $240, thus putting the overall average asking price at roughly $230. Now let’s see what buyers are willing to pay for the shoe.
Secondary markets have to come up with a system that rejects offers that are 10% below the MSRP of a shoe that hasn’t officially released yet. As you can see in the image above, buyers’ offers are ridiculously low and not very realistic. There is interest on the shoe but folks are just not willing to even pay the retail price for them. So to come up with an estimate of the average resale value, we’ll need to find the average between the MSRP and the current asking price.
Average Resale Value= ( $150+ $230)/2= $190
The two sales that were recorded were $175 and $234, leading to a $204.5 average sale price, which isn’t too far from the $190. At this point, I wouldn’t recommend attempting to resell the shoe at all, the demand is there but with the plethora of shoes available, consumers aren’t willing to reach deep into their pockets for anything.
