As reported by Sneaker News, this time around, we’re getting six patent leather iterations of the iconic BAPE STA in fittingly refreshing color options. The glistening pairs opt for identical branding and color blocking, in three different shades of the same base — black, red, blue, purple, green, and pink — all coming together to form one cohesive kit.

As usual, BAPE’s signature star logo dresses the side, a white BAPE head sits atop the heel, and neutral white laces and midsoles streamline the look.

The summer-ready BAPE STAs are set to arrive later this month for $279 each. Keep it here for updates when an official release date is announced.
