BAPE STA - “Spongebob”
BAPE STA “Spongebob”
The Bape Sta was Nigo’s homage to Nike’s legendary Air Force 1. Wildly popular in Japan, before permeating American street culture in the early aughts, the Bape Sta was known for it’s wild and vivid exploration of color palettes. This pair however is unique for other reasons. Based on a SpongeBob collaboration from the Spring/Summer 2008 A Bathing Ape collection, this bespoke pair was made especially for Pharrell. They were reskinned in pale yellow crocodile leather and emblazoned with the Krusty Krabs star employee. SpongeBob’s face is embroidered on each outer heel.
