With a mailing list that consists of over 163 million customers, the United States Postal Service is about as mainstream as it gets when it comes to collaborators for sneaker brands. Although USPS has done collabs with other brands in the past, BAPE has signed up to drop the latest USPS release with a new take on the classic Bape Sta.
After a number of quiet years, BAPE has been going hard with collaborations in recent years. Also known as A Bathing Ape, is known for its camouflage prints, shark hoodies, the famous “Ape” head, and of course, the “original fake” Air Force 1. The Bape Sta began life with bright colors that artists like Pharrell and Kanye laced up on a regular basis but now patent finishes are rare. Now, the creative inspirations come in the form of USPS shipping envelopes as you see on this upcoming USPS x BAPE Bape Sta. You can grab these on August 28th directly from the Bape website.
