Indeed, footwear from Japanese label BAPE (or A Bathing Ape) gained the dubious reputation for imitating popular models of Nike and adidas early on in its history. Certainly, till these days, the company doesn’t see the need to reinvent the wheel, instead a simple perfection here or there would just do. The same goes for the BAPE LL Soldier Boots, a perfect rendition of the original L.L. Bean Duck Boots, with the exception of a lug outsole, an all-leather upper, and the added accent element of BAPE First Camo pattern embossed on to the top half. Available in green or brown leather, the BAPE LL Soldier Boots is currently for sale at BAPE LAND online and soon at BAPE retail locations worldwide.
