Nigo, the legendary Japanese designer behind the iconic streetwear brand A BATHING APE, has reportedly signed a deal with Nike after a 20-year partnership with Adidas. According to Complex, the Nigo x Nike collaboration is in its early stages, with a release expected in 2024. While Nigo's work with BAPE drew heavy inspiration from existing sneaker icons, his nod to the Air Force 1 was the most culturally significant. Despite Nike's recent lawsuit against BAPE for allegedly copying its designs, the Swoosh seems eager to team up with the designer himself.

Nigo's work with A BATHING APE, which drew inspiration from existing sneaker icons like the Air Force 1, has been the subject of controversy in recent years, with Nike suing the brand for allegedly copying its designs. Despite this, Nike is eager to collaborate with the legendary designer, with a release date for the Nigo x Nike collection set for 2024.
