A Bathing Ape has been notorious for their unabashed use of established ideas and media icons for their line of footwear and apparel – the Nike Air Force 1 silhouette being the first that comes to mind. This time the crew over at the Bape camp decided to combine the AF1 Mid with another classic that was the Euro-rocker craze of the 70s (and later on the feet of high-schoolers in the 90s). Check out this trio of new colourways of the Bape Sta Mid, inspired by the Doc Marten boot; the yellow stitching on the midsole and deep and rich-colored leather uppers being the points of interest. Each pair has a elongated height-wise heel-tab that spans the entire rear of the shoe, reading ‘APE SHALL NEVER KILL APE’. These are available now at select A Bathing Ape stores now. via HB.
