Editor’s Notes: A Bathing Ape is serving up two very special versions of its legendary BAPESTA sneaker. Dressed in either black or white patent leather, the sneakers feature the Japanese brand’s shark motif on the lateral side. The shark graphic is, of course, most famously seen on BAPE’s iconic shark zip-up hoodie.
In addition to the newly-added graphic, BAPE branding can be seen on the tongue tag and silver dubraes, while “WGM” is stitched onto the heel of each shoe.
Check out the sneakers above and look out for their January 19 drop date.
