Inspired by BAPE STA colorways of the 2000s.
A Bathing Ape has continued to release BAPE STA colorways over its two-decade history, though lately, more attention is being drawn to the silhouette thanks to hot collaborations with the likes of Drake’s OVO and more. Bringing us on a nostalgia trip to the days of Skateboard P and Nigo rocking fresh pairs, a pack of OG colorways is returning to the silhouette.
Like many of the classic BAPE STA colorways, the silhouette is covered in patent leather across its AF1-like upper in a collage of complimentary colors. Three colorways comprise the pack, coming in Yellow/Blue/Grey, Yellow/Brown/Green, and Red/White/Grey, all of which switch up the color blocking between the toebox and quarter panel between the two secondary shades. Running up the eyestays is a set of white flat laces, held in place on the bottom by an APE logo and stopping just below a BAPE STA branded tongue tag. Along the midfoot, the star logo borrows the same shade as the rubber midsole below and passes by a debossed APE logo on the heel overlay. Rounding out the design for all three colorways is a white rubber outsole.
The A Bathing Ape BAPE STA OG Colorway Pack is set to release on September 10th, 2022 through BAPE online and in-store. Releasing in men’s sizing, the retail price is TBA. For more updates on this nostalgic pack of BAPE STA colorways and more in the sneaker and streetwear world, keep it locked to our Twitter and the Sole Retriever mobile app.
