Bathing Ape Update!

Taking cues from the adidas Stan Smith (thanks Tom for the correction!), these new Bathing Ape Bapesta are difficult to recognize at first because of the missing Bapesta logo on the side of the shoe. However you'll discover it is a Bathing Ape product by the Bapesta logo at the back of the shoe, the bape logo on the tongue and on the insoles. Bathing Ape Bapesta Pictures.

Every year the Bathing Ape lugger shirt is very popular. With it's sporty but casual look and this year will be no different. As usual, most Bathing Ape products focus on attention to details. A big Bape head logo quietly resides at the elbows of the shirt. It comes in two different colors. Bathing Ape Lugger Shirt Pictures.

Here's another Bape x Kaws collaboration. The logo is supposed to have a "textured" feeling. It also comes in a T-shirt version. Bathing Ape x Kaws Shirt Pictures.

I really felt like stopping the update on Bathing Ape items at the Kaws collab but I could not help but to include this very nice Bathing Ape 2005 patch work shirt. The rich and colorful patch work includes three different colors of the Ape Camo. Bathing Ape Patch Work Pictures.

Whew.. I feel like I OD on Bape.

New Bathing Ape Shirts!

Here are some new shirts from Bathing Ape. The Bathing Ape Milo Shirt on the left has Baby Milo giving us the big thumbs up. The design itself is okay. It also comes in a white color. I have a problem with the Bathing Ape Palm Shirt on the right. The design with the palm tress is very mediocre. It looks like a cheap bootleg Hawaiian shirt that I could buy in some flea market. With new Bathing Ape shirts coming out almost everyday, I guess you can't expect them all to be gems. It also come in other different colors if you're interested.

The popularity of the North Face Purple Label continues with these new releases. This time, five new styles are available each with a distinct personality.

In4mation Spring 2005 Tee Preview!

Check out In4mation's new Spring 2005 line! They will be available some in between March and April. Here's a brief bio taken from In4mation's site:

"In4mation is comprised of four partners, Ryan Arakaki, Todd Shimabuku, Jun Jo and Rhandy Tambio. The concept of the name In4mation was from a popular cartoon VOLTRON, in which unique characters assembled to become one indestructible machine. The name In4mation and the “plus” logo mark symbolize a unique bond and signify In4mation’s positive outlook and welcoming attitudes attained by exploring varied paths of life. In4mation’s motto, “ I SHALL PROCEED…AND CONTINUE” is a catch phrase taken from an influential hip-hop band that serves as a reminder to follow our chosen paths and to keep on moving forward."

Maharishi DPM x B&W Speakers!!

B&W has been creating quality loudspeakers since 1966. Now they have teamed up with Maharishi DPM to create this new B&W 601 speaker which combines the camo art of Maharishi and B&W speaker technology. The Mahrishi camo is the famous one with the bonsai trees and dragons which was also featured on the Nike x DPM Terminator Hi. The speaker itself is of top quality. It is a "compact bookshelf/stand-mount speaker that combinesa 165mm (6 1/2-in) woven Kevlar cone bass/midrange driver with a Nautilus tube-loaded metal dome tweeter. The cabinet features extra internal bracing for reduced colouration. The speaker also features B&W's Flowport technology that uses golf-ball-style dimples to improve air-flow in the reflex ports. This ensures clean bass with good attack that remains more consistent with level compared to simpler designs."

Nike Dunk Hi

New Nike Dunk Hi for Spring 2005. Again, Nike keeps to the simple theme that they have been doing this year so far. The white color is matched with a classic university blue.

New Balance M576 Camo!

New Balance jumps on the Camo train with these NB M576. They come in three types of camo colors: beige, grey and brown. In my opinion, it's a bit overkill on the camo but nevertheless they are doing something new but introducing the new grey camo color. I'm just a tad bored with the green/brown camo colors all the time. If NB held back on the camo just a bit, this shoe would rock.


Nike Vandal Hi

These are the Nike Vandal Highs in a new color scheme. The strap is in a white/green/red color which can either represent the Italian flag or the Mexican Flag, you pick. So far, many of Nike's releases this year are nice and simple. In addition, Nike has made many shoes in the color white recently.
