Wanna rock the coolest ear buds out of all your friends? No problem, BAPE’s got you covered with their new Milo ear buds. They come in black and white and will only cost you about 3,900 Yen. I’m not really sure how much that is but if you want to get them they are available at BAPE stores now.
I’m glad to see Bape drop some fresh hoodies that don’t have that crazy camo print or Baby Milo’s all over it. These are simple and very fresh in my opinion. The nice thing about it is you get a cool little toy that has a matching hoodie on it. Check out all the colorways after the jump.
You don’t have to be too creative over in the marketing department to come up with a fly Bape x G-Shock collab. Just put both brand names on it, and add just a little splash of color, and bam — you got yourself a best-seller. Set to drop in Bape stores on this coming Sunday, the 23rd.
Finally… something from Bape that I probably wouldn’t regret spending so much money on because I wouldn’t have to spend that much money to get it. You get the full set of 3 for 40 bucks — available at the Bape online shop. I want the round squishy one. Throw down 14 bucks with 2 other friends, and you can all rock the Bape-age.
Cool watch, right? Yeah… now where have I seen it before? Oh yeah, I first saw it when my mom ordered one after she saw it on Ellen, and then I saw it again on October 12, 2008 when it was posted on Sneakhype. No, my mom didn’t order a Bape watch… but she did order essentially the exact same thing, a ToyWatch. I don’t know if Bape paid ToyWatch to make their watches, or if they’re using the same parts, but the resemblance is ridiculous. Seriously, hit that “More Dopeness” link at the end of the post and you will see that the dial is the EXACT same, the hands on the watch are identical… and perhaps the biggest tell that they are made by ToyWatch: the time shown on the watch is the same. The bad news: Bape was slightly unoriginal in their watch design. The good news: you can get a watch for half the price that looks almost identical to these from ToyWatch. The ‘more’ bad news: my mom has a ToyWatch. The ‘more’ good news: my mom is a Sneakhype G.
It has been a while since BAPE has came out with anything that really impressed me but they blew my mind with these metallic kicks. I know other brands have used metallic materials on shoes before but damn these Bapestas are clean. They come in gold and silver check out some better pictures after the jump.
Starting April 29th A Bathing Ape will be opening their official pirate store. It will feature lots of archived items, treasures, and factory second merchandise. I never thought BAPE would sell things on sale, its pretty dope. For the occasion BAPE will be making a special Pirate T for around $41.00. The location of the store has not been announced. Stayed tuned for more details. [highsnobiety]
