So I have been getting a lot of questions and requests regarding BAPE. Here are some answers to the most commonly asked question (CAQ).

Q. How much is an average pair of BAPE STA shoes?

A. There are some special theme branded shoes with Marvel comic themes to them,. I have seen Iron Man, Superman, Superwoman, and Batman. There are probably some other themes as well. These themed shoes cost more then the average pair as they are using Marvel property for the themes. A regular pair of BAPE’s costs about ¥1600 - ¥2000 which is about $160 - $200 CND.

Q. Where can I buy BAPE?

A. BAPE has 33 oficial stores located in Japan. In the U.S.A. there are two stores; one is in Los Angeles, and the other is in New York City. There is also stores in Europe and in Hong Kong. Because Bape sells different styles at different stores, people would get the best variety by buying BAPE in Japan.

Q. What does BAPE mean?

A. BAPE stands for a Bathing Ape. The company was created by Dj Nigo; he called the company a Bathing Ape because it is an expression used in Japan to mean spoiled which is what he thinks of the current generation in Japan.
