Model: BAPE STA “Cotton Candy”

Key Features: Colorful patent leather covers the upper, giving the shoe a glossy effect. BAPE branding is seen on the tongue, insole, and heel.

Release Date: Saturday, July 28

Price: $265


Editor’s Notes: First introduced in the early 2000’s, the BAPE STA quickly became A Bathing Ape’s most iconic silhouette. For SS18, the Japanese streetwear staple is bringing back the colorful “Cotton Candy” colorways that proved so popular back then.

All three colorways are constructed using patent leather uppers. The shoes arrive in blue/white/red, blue/yellow/green, and yellow/blue/pink iterations.

Available starting July 28, the BAPE STAs will set you back a princely $265.
