A Bathing Ape

The Japanese fashion streetwear and lifestyle brand A Bathing Ape, or BAPE was founded by designer and musician Nigo in 1993. But it wasn't until 2002 that BAPE released its first line of sneakers, extending its dominance over the streetwear scene. Since then, BAPE sneaker releases, like all BAPE designs and drops, have become iconic and avant-garde in the skating world and in urban subculture.

The first and most iconic silhouette of A Bathing Ape sneakers is A Bathing Ape STA. Usually low tops, these sneakers often feature a white leather upper with contrasting or sometimes tonal suede overlays. All of them are graced with the STA logo, a zigzag shooting star extending from the quarter panel to the heel. Other silhouettes popularised by BAPE include A Bathing Ape SK8, a line of sneakers heavily influenced by skateboarding culture. A Bathing Ape Roadsta takes on more of a running shoe look. BAPE sneakers are available in low, mid, and high top with uppers constructed from a various array of fabrics and dressed in seemingly infinite colourways combining more subdued hues.

What sets apart A Bathing Ape sneakers from other brands is the luxuriant feel of wearing these sneakers. The sole unit, particularly the midsole, is custom-shaped to ensconce the foot in lightweight, cushioning support, making every step feel decadent and luxurious.

When you slip on a pair of A Bathing Ape sneakers, you can take your outfit to the next level with a choice from the multifarious selection of BAPE streetwear. If you are feeling particularly iconic, you can toss on a BAPE by Bathing Ape Tee SS23 Green and you're ready for action.
