Southern California and Tokyo collide in this unexpected, but very welcomed, collaboration between Ugg and BAPE, starring Grammy Award-winning artist Lil Wayne as the charismatic face. The limited-edition collection features snug, yet stylish pieces of men's footwear, apparel and cold-weather accessories, which will be available to purchase towards the end of February at select BAPE store locations in New York and Los Angeles.

Lil Wayne praised the collaboration, claiming "Been rocking UGG and BAPE since the beginning. This collab is next level".

The UGG x BAPE Spring/Summer 2019 collaboration was first unveiled last year at BAPE's 25th anniversary exhibition, using a fun, bold camouflage print to blend in UGG Men's best-selling styles with BAPE's iconic streetwear aesthetic. The collection consists of three iconic UGG footwear styles—Classic MiniNeumel and Tasman—plus the sheepskin Mouton Coat and a cozy pair of mittens.

“Partnering with an iconic streetwear brand like BAPE allowed us to show UGG Men’s in a fresh new way and environment,” Andrea O’Donnell of Deckers Brands chimed in on the new collection. “BAPE took its world-renowned print and applied it to several of our top-performing men’s silhouettes, creating a street style-ready capsule.”
