The iconic 50-year-old tennis sneaker with a three-piece toe cap boasts the Japanese label’s signature ape camouflage print on its upper and is paired with a clean white midsole and outsole. On one of the shoe’s five stripes is the AAPE by A Bathing Ape branding; additional branding for the label appears on the shoe’s heel, woven tongue label and insoles. The look is completed with white laces and the signature K-Swiss d-ring eyelets.
