Even though A Bathing Ape has fallen out of favor in some circles, it is still making headway in several emerging markets, like that of China. Little wonder the brand pulled out all the stops once the clock struck midnight during New Year’s Eve. Introducing the next iteration of Road Sta sneakers by A Bathing Ape for 2012, designs in supple leather appointed with fluorescent yellow laces, sock liner, and “shooting star” logo in patent leather. Bearing a vague resemblance to the Nike Air Max Wright, it comes in black or light grey colorways, both with contrasting white midsole. Available currently at BAPE retail locations in Japan and its ZOZOTOWN online store.
