The first BAPE skateboard shoe
A Bathing Ape has just released a new line of corduroy BAPESTA shoes. If you are a skateboarder, these shoes would be perfect for skating. After seeing these, I am thinking that BAPE should release a skateboard/snowboard line of clothing. They wouldn’t have to change too many things to do this. They already have the backpacks, jackets, cargo pants, etc… I would love to see some BAPE skateboard decks, wheels, trucks, and grip tape. They could also release some cool BAPE snowboards, and boots.
A Bathing Ape Pirate Store – London U.K
If you live in the U.K. and have not yet made it down to the BAPE Pirate Store, what are you waiting for? Just to tempt you a bit more, check out these four exclusive t-shirts released just for the UK BAPE Pirate Store. You won’t be able to get these shirts after the sale is over so hurry up!
BAPE Pirate Store Exclusive T-Shirts
One of the shirts has the BAPE gorilla wearing an eye patch and pirate hat. Another one shows Baby Milo wearing a pirate hat on top of a skull and cross bones. The third one has Baby Milo wearing a pirate hat with two pirate swords behind him. The last one shows Baby Milo wearing a bandanna with two cutlass swords behind him. Have a look at all four designs below.
Last year, A Bathing Ape released the different colour camo iPhone skins which were a big success. Now, the latest release is a Baby Milo iPhone skin for the iPhone 4G. It looks good, but I wish they would make some for other types of phones or at least just make one that you can cut out to fit your specific phone.
So Nigo, if you read this… please make a skin for the Samsung Galaxy S!
It’s raining BAPE?!
A Bathing Ape has been releasing all sorts of new items lately. And now, you can add the BAPE umbrella to your collection. It has been raining a lot so far this year so this will definitely come in handy. Check out the online BAPE store to order one or get out and hit up your local store before they are all sold out!
And before you all start asking, it also comes in black.
A Bathing Ape and Porter are set to release a new line up of bags, wallets, carrying cases and more on April 20th, 2011. The designs feature the BAPE camo on the outside of the bags and the interior is bright orange. The prices in the images are in Japanese yen. I really like the BAPE laptop bag, but I don’t really like the orange interiors. It would have been better if it was the grey urban camo on the inside and the green jungle camo on the outside.
