Sneaker News x BAPE
The famous media SNEAKER NEWS has announced a footwear collaboration with the legendary Japanese steetwear brand A BATHING APE. This exclusive « Friends and Family » collection consists of 3 iconic silhouettes : the BAPE STA, SKATE STA and COURT STA.
These Low silhouettes illustrate the long history of BAPE and its prominent place in the sneaker culture.
Sneaker News would like to thank its loyal readers by offering the ultra limited pieces of this collaborative collection to 4 lucky people. They will be able to choose their favorite model, in their appropriate size. The shoes are indeed available in all sizes, a nice initiative from the famous media because it is unfortunately not yet a widespread fact.
The BAPE STA comes in 3 classic colorways, monochrome black, beige or white. It consits of an high quality leather and suede on the side heel. On the latter, an embroidery « SN » affirms the collaboration. A white midsole and a white or black outsole, depending on the version, complete the look.
The SKATE STA is available in 2 colorways : light green/pin green/night blue and beige/light brown/deep red. It’s dressed in suede with the BAPE signature shooting star in contrasting color. The iconic « 93 » plaque adorns the side heel and the « SN » logo appears embroidered on the back of the heel, in light green or red depending on the iteration. A two-tone sole completes the design.
The COURT STA features a white suede construction, complemented by mauve overlays with discreet patterns. The BAPE side star and heel tab come in a darker shade of purple. The « SN » logo adorns the back of the heel in contrasting embroidery. The whole is based on a mauve midsole coupled with a purple outsole.
The ultra-limited Sneaker News x BAPE collection will be available for free and exclusively via a raffle on the media’s sales site : store.sneakernews.com. Registration is now open and closes on April 19, 2021. Good luck !
