Back in February, two music label versions of the BAPE STA were revealed by members of their respective camps. Curren$y revealed his Jet Life version of shoe, while Bas revealed the Dreamville version. Following the release of the Jet Life BAPE STA in July, we now have news on the Dreamville BAPE STA’s release.
A Bathing Ape has been releasing various iterations of the BAPE STA this year in celebration of the model’s 20th anniversary. This Dreamville edition, made in collaboration with one of today’s hottest and most successful music collectives, features a yellow STA logo on the shoe’s light gray and blue body. The label name is engraved on the backstay, as well as printed on the insole.
“It’s an honor for us at Dreamville to be able to collaborate with such an iconic brand. The way BAPE® has been able to build their brand and always stay true to who they are is an inspiration to a brand like ours.” said Ibrahim Hamad, Co-Founder and CEO of Dreamville.
Even though J Cole has a PUMA deal, that doesn’t mean his labelmates can’t join in on the sneaker collab fun. The A BATHING APE® x Dreamville BAPE STA™ will be available on Saturday, September 12th at A BATHING APE® locations, US.BAPE.COM (usually 11AM EST), the BAPE.COM WEB STORE and ZOZOTOWN.
