The Bape Crepe was introduced into the Bape shoe family in the 2000s. Using the famous Puma Clyde body, these are very similar; the only main difference would be the Sta going across the side that all Bape fiends love.
Crepes were first released in 2005 and were not much of a success compared to other hyped-up Bapes; of course, they sold out, but not as quickly as the camo colors and other stuff. They were only available in Suede, which, for those of you who hate the creasing of Bapes, is a good thing; they do not crease much and are a nice casual shoe, seeing as they are not the regular wild colorways, only subtle ones.
Bape Crepes will run you the same as most Bapes, anywhere from about $160 in Japan to $190 NYC for a new pair. Be careful if you are getting them less than that as if they are new, they will most likely be fake. The going rate for a legitimate pair is about $180-$220 on eBay plus your shipping costs.
Overall Bathing Ape Crepes are a great shoe for just your normal wear, not too flashy, not to plain, a nice causal kick around shoe. For upcoming releases, history, colorways, and pricing, see below.
