Bape Bapecheck Ape Sta Hi (1)

A Bathing Ape has given us a few Chuck Taylor esque shoes in the past and for the most part, they have been successful across the globe. Here we see another Chuck Taylor style shoe but this time it is dressed in a Harris Tweed upper. Harris Tweed contains subtle flecks of color which is caused by the use of vegetable dyes during, well, the dying process. Harris Tweed may not sound familiar to you but you are sure to have seen it as Nike used it on such models as the Air Force 1, Terminator, Blazer, Footscape and Royal Mid. These A Bathing Ape Bapechecks will be releasing in October at A Bathing Ape locations as well as online. In the mean time, check out the photos and let us know what you think in our comments section below  Via EK

    ^^you can't copywrite the SHAPE or panelling of a shoe…..only the name and trademarked logo……so from a technically speaking vantage point, Bape can use any shoe SHAPE they want….AF1, Chuck Taylor, Puma Suede, etc and legally speaking, the other companies can't do a damn thing about it……like it or not, that's the truth of it from a legal perspective.
