UPDATE: The BAPE STA has landed and it's looking mighty fine. The new images from Social Status show the premium detailing and refined build that we were expecting to see. You can snag a pair now by heading over to the SS online store or by visiting your local BAPE dealer.
Japan’s streetwear vanguard, A Bathing Ape, has brought its BAPE STA MID back into the game. The silhouettes have always been divisive, but we’re sure the new brown and black colourways will cause quite a stir among ape loyalists. The two tonal renditions are some of the most low-key BAPE STAs we’ve seen – in line with the current trend for the single colour dipped look we see a lot of these days. From the strap to the star, the construction is an all out nubuck affair, with waxed rope laces to hold it all together.
We don’t have any solid release info for the BAPE STA MID just yet, watch this spot for updates.
