Counting more than five years since the partnership between A BATHING APE ® and solebox as a dealer started, with last year’s collaboration we set a new milestone in our successful alliance. The first made in Italy solebox BAPE STA™ brought together the iconic silhouette and BAPE’s world famous camo pattern with solebox‘ simplicity and highest quality craftsmanship. The shoes released alongside a range of solebox x BAPE ® apparel.
As a result to the highly anticipated release back in 2021 we are proud to present a new colorway on this successful model. The shoe features a similar material combination and tweaked color palette while remaining made in Italy.
The BAPE STA™ counts as the most iconic silhouette out of the brands footwear range and has transformed into an iconic sneaker that is considered as a piece of street fashion history. It stands for A BATHING APE ® and is a beloved product all around the world.
To celebrate the collaboration the way it deserves we met with fashion frontrunner Bloody Osiris to portray the updated pair. Hailing from Harlem, Bloody Osiris gained notoriety for his styling work and modeling for the likes of Travis Scott and Virgil Abloh. Known for his unconventional style and always taking it to another level, he is staying true to himself.
The shoe itself converts staying true. What stands out is the OG shape we already revived in our first collaboration. The infamous BAPE ® pattern is portrayed in form of line-camo all around the premium-quality suede upper. Maintaining the focus on quality the pair features leather lining, heel branding and arrives in a branded custom packaging.
The solebox x A Bathing Ape ® BAPE STA™ will exclusively be available on December 30th via solebox.com and all solebox locations, as well as through BAPE.COM WEB STORE and DSMG.
