Swag Out This Summer In BAPE’s Bapesta Slip-Ons!

In ’04, BAPE was for superstars who carried American Express Black Cards and rolled in luxury vehicles we’d need a German translator to properly pronounce. In ’05, the trend trickled down to the commoners of the fashion world, and by ’06, people wished they could get rid of the so-called fad that is Japan’s premier streetwear brand. But Nigo, the company’s ringleader, wasn’t in the business for a quick fix. In fact, he had been in the business far before most of you guys and girls reading this cared about fashion.  Don’t you remember seeing Biggie draped in that vintage BAPE jacket, circa ’97?

Fast forward to 2010, and BAPE is arguably the most sought after streetwear brand in existence. Far from a temporary craze, Nigo’s brainchild had outlasted the hype and solidified its place in streetwear history. Sure, it’s expensive, but quality like BAPE is hard to come by.

Now, we know you’ve been thinking about how to start the summer right. It’s only fitting that you grab yourself something that’ll get you through these three months of hellish heat while still remaining incredibly comfy. Check out these Bapesta Slip-Ons.

A Bapesta-print embroidered upper and a vulcanized sole complete their simple, classy take on the slip-on. Pick these up in either blue (above), black, or red (both below).

Price check? Looking to grab these in the US of A? Hopefully all that good news will leak shortly.
