Camo Sneakers Forever
Camo sneakers, or camo print trainers, whatever way you call it, they are for sure always going to make a strong visual statement. It could be camouflage shoes by Nike, New Balance, Asics, whatever the brand for that matter.
Most people have a thing with camo print sneakers. Some love it. Some other just hate it.
We understand that camo patterns aren’t for everyone, especially if you consider yourself to have rather a sober style. Nevertheless, in between so many options and from time to time, brands collaborate with one another to create true neck-breakers camo-patterned sneakers.
BAPE x Mita Sneakers x Reebok Insta Pump Fury OG “Camo”
As part of the 20th Anniversary of the Insta Pump Fury, Japanese giants BAPE and Mita Sneakers have joined forces to create a camo version of this retro-tech and laceless silhouette.
As expected, it was delivered in an all-over camo patterned upper with a mesh toebox. Contrasting with its full-white midsole, you will be able to find a black heel featuring BAPE’s Bapesta logo embroidered.

BAIT x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Basics Model-001 Vanquish”
There was a time where ASICS created some hype. We are not saying that they do not create some as of today, however, it has decreased in huge amounts. Even though collaborations still have a great sell out rates, we can’t compare it to how it was before.
Dubbed the “Vanquish”, these GEL-Lyte III display a black suede and textile camouflaged upper while premium details are seen on the wire-mesh accents and gold brandings. This is the first pair that released out of three; in our opinion, it is the one that stands out the most.

Nike Air Maxim 1 SP German Camo
We all know that the Air Maxim 1 is not everyone’s favorite. We share your thoughts and feelings, no doubt. However, there’s one that exceeds all expectations and is most probably the best Air Maxim 1 of all time.
Part of the “Country Camo” Pack and displaying an incredibly bold camouflage print on the upper, this silhouette is built using hyperfuse and canvas.

adidas Originals NMD R1 x BAPE
If all of this goes around camo-colorways, expect to find many BAPE sneakers. Their camo barely changes, but somehow, everyone just keeps on loving it. As the relationship between adidas and A Bathing Ape goes back many years, it was obvious that one of the most coveted silhouettes of recent times would be released in a collaboration.
Dressed in a full bape-camo upper, the NMD sits on top of a full-length white Boost midsole and black outsole.

Shoe Gallery x Reebok Classic Leather R12 “Flamingoes at War”
Straight out of Miami, we get an unexpected color mixing, especially on a Reebok. It is true you don’t get to see many of these Reebok Classic Leather R12 floating around, not even at reseller websites, nevertheless, they are true bangers.
Bright-pink suede can be found at the toebox while the rest is covered in camo-print. In addition, the shoe displays a brown leather sockliner, black midsole and gum outsole.

atmos x ASICS GEL-Lyte V
After all, we are all familiar with atmos collaborations. Hence, the Japan-based sneaker-shop is no stranger when it comes to camo-prints in their creations. Using the classic woodland camo pattern on the suede upper, this pair was quite limited around the world.
The atmos x Asics Gel-Lyte V sit on top of a gumsole and white outsole while black details are seen around the toebox and heel, complemented by black leather Tiger Stripes.

Supreme x NikeLab Air Jordan V “Desert Camo”
We all know that Supreme and Nike sustain a long-lasting partnership. This time, it was Jordan Brand that took the gold medal home. Dubbed the “Desert Camo”, for obvious reasons, these Jordan V came out better than what we all expected.
While white mesh details are seen on the side panel, the “23” PE branding on the heel is exchanged with a “94” – an homage to the skateshop’s first year in business.
BAPE x UNDFTD x adidas Consortium Superstar 80s
Yet again, we go back to Japan. Two main imprints, BAPE and UNDFTD, teamed up with adidas Consortium to create a clean and sleek Superstar. Discrete yet powerful, this sneaker displays the iconic BAPE camo print on the tongue and lining.
In addition, details are seen on the gold touches around the heels that show the UNDFTD brandings and the Ape head. Three colorways were released – black, grey and white. However, this colorway, in particular, stands out the most to us.

Nike Air Pegasus 89 “Reunification”
If you have seen any Nike Pegasus around, most probably you won’t look twice. In fact, they even end up in outlets. But there’s at least one exception to every rule.
The Nike Air Pegasus 89 “Reunification” was released to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the so-called German Reunification. The silhouette is dressed in olive green with camo details across the upper.
Plus, they are finished off with a black swoosh and black midsole. For last but not least, the resell prices on this pair sky-rocketed.

Footlocker Exclusive New Balance 990V4 “Camo”
This is an odd one, and most probably you have never seen or heard about it, even though they only released a few weeks back. There’s a good reason behind it: they were footlocker exclusive and they did not launch in many of them.
These New Balance 990V4 are built using premium cream suede and canvas while details are seen in desert-camo mesh on the upper. Made in the USA, these semi-camo 990V4 are a must have, if you can find them.

BAPE x Mita Sneakers x Reebok Insta Pump Fury OG “City-Camo”
Another close-to-perfection iteration of the Reebok Insta Pump Fury is done by BAPE and Mita Sneakers, from Japan. The three have given this classic silhouette a city-camo leather upper altogether with glow-in-the-dark details. Furthermore, you will be able to find BAPE branding on the heel.

atmos x Nike Air Max 1 “Army Camo” / “Tiger Camo”
Dubbed the “Army Camo” and / or “Tiger Camo”, Nike partnered up with Atmos from Japan to produce, yet again, another iteration of the Air Max 1. Delivered with a luxurious black snakeskin material on the toebox, upper quarter and tongue, they sit on top of a white midsole. After all, this pair is a must have for any AM1 enthusiast. We know, the shape is far from perfect – and normally we don’t say this – but who cares?

BAPE x UNDFTD x adidas Consortium ZX 5000
Streetwear giant UNDFTD joined forces with BAPE and adidas to create one of the best three-stripes collaboration that has ever released. Yes, ever.
They are quite a sought after pair and almost impossible to find in DS condition. The shoe is delivered in a traditional ape-camo with classic tricolor stripes. Are they the best adidas of “recent” times? Hard to say, no doubt, but they stand a chance.

atmos x Asics GEL-Lyte III “Duck Camo”

atmos has a long-lasting relationship almost with every brand on the planet. Asics is no different, hence, following their most sober release of all time during the 25th Anniversary of the GEL-Lyte III, Japan’s finest released another GL3, however using a duck-camo colorway, combined with a black mesh toebox, side vamps and split-tongue. For last but not least, the tiger stripes are delivered in black leather.
Vans x Supreme Old Skool 2015
Vans and Supreme got together for another epic collaboration back in 2015. Back then, and apart from the three different camo colorways of the Old Skool presented here, there were also three pairs of the Vans Sk8-Mid with the same colorways.
Green camo, yellow and dark orange and blue camo tones covered this new age classic model. If years ago they looked great, now they seem to look even better.

Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the infamous Reebok Question, Allen Iverson’s signature sneakers, BAPE and mita Sneakers joined forces with Reebok, yet again, to present a classic silhouette with a modern twist.
Dubbed the “1st Camo”, the Question is dressed in BAPE’s original camo-pattern and built using durable ballistic nylon. Details are seen in the felt toe-caps in olive green as well as BAPE brandings on the lace-loops and of course, their star logo appears in place of the number 3 on each heel.

Arguably one of the best Air Max 1 out there, these were released for Friends & Family only, celebrating Nike’s flagship grand opening in Berlin.
It is said that only 50 pairs were made and as expected, be ready to pay an arm and a leg for them, if you can find them. No need to say much more, what a masterpiece!

With this list of camo sneakers that we have done just for you, we can just see how strong Nike has been throughout the years in such terms. You are right, we don’t get tired of it.
The Nike Air Max 1 USA Camouflage uses the traditional USA sand and bison colorway on the upper as well as light brown canvas panels altogether with a hyperfused toebox.
Nike Lebron 9 Low “War Vet” (PE)
To finish our list, we are going to tell you about a PE pair that never hit the market. In addition, we can say that the Lebron 9 Low is one of our favorite silhouettes from the one and only Mr. James.
The camo upper of this court-shoe sits on top of a black midsole and gum outsole. The inspiration behind the sneaker ends up being quite simple, even though you may not see it at first glance.
The pattern is meant to signify Lebron going to “war”, battling out for the championship for so many straight years.
