Bape is still selling kicks & Ts at an outrageously expensive pricing and yet young kids all over the world are still clamoring over it. Recession we are in? Then tell me how these $273 Air Force 1 lookalike still moves with swiftness? Maybe it is because of the classic silhouette of the Uptowns, maybe b'cause they are made in limited quantity and maybe it's the colorful palettes that they come in. I used to think they are a dope @$$ brand because they are exclusive and very Japanese, but now, 90% of the company is Chinese owned, and it's becoming more and more knockoffs like. You know everything that is Made in China is basically crappy knockoffs.Well then that makes almost 85% of all the Nike products, BWAHAHAHA....Anyways these are three of the latest offering of Bape's Bape Sta model with soft nubuck uppers and they are available in all Bape retail stores and online as well @ BAPE.
