The Tracksta is the latest entry into Bape’s footwear department. Taking a page out of the Nike Air Stab’s design, the Tracksta features a low-profile shape. By Bape’s standards, these original colorways are pretty tame. Look for these to hit Bape Stores in the near future.
The Air Yeezy saga continues with another colorway popping up. While the anatomy of the shoe has been thoroughly dissected and shown, still no concrete info is known regarding the sneakers release or availability. The Kanye West signature sneaker is shown here in what appears to be an off-white pearl colorway. Stay tuned for more details.
