Just a few months ago we asked ourselves the question whether or not the A Bathing Ape BAPESTA sneaker, inspired by the Nike Air Force 1, could become cool again. Aside from strong in-line versions and classics, the BAPESTA has also been used as the base for the recent collaboration with Ronnie Fieg and it seems like interest on the sneaker is boiling up again. With people wanting more than ever something different from the norm, it makes sense that the Japanese brand’s sneaker is celebrating a comeback. In a way, the sneaker also perfectly falls in-line with current bootleg trends. Being so heavily inspired by the AF1, you are essentially getting the very same sneaker, yet with a twist that sets you apart from the rest. For Fall/Winter 2016 BAPE presents the BAPESTA in its iconic ABC Camo, using a heavy canvas across the entire upper. The Star logo comes in white leather, matching the crisp white outer sole. You can pick up the sneaker now from BAPE stores from around the globe.
