BAPE Shark Hoodie Goes For Luxe Leather

The popular BAPE shark hoodie underwent a luxe makeover. The Japanese streetwear brand opted to use leather for the latest iteration of its iconic staple piece.


The item is one of the most popular items from A Bathing Ape. The new, high-quality version of the hoodie arrived just in time for the Fall/Winter 2017 season.

The shark hoodie is now available in two colorways: olive green and black. It features the signature split hood with the shark face as well as “WGM” lettering.

It also has a BAPE branding printed on the waist line. 100 percent premium leather is used to create the jackets. It has gray accents that complement the base colorway.

Killer Sales from Sharks

The shark hoodie rose to popularity and is a staple piece from BAPE. Celebrities and athletes, such as Pharrell Williams and Lil Wayne, have worn the jacket.

Its previous releases were cotton versions of the item. The latest move by A Bathing Ape is the first time that the iconic piece is in full leather material.

Fans can purchase the leather hoodie jacket for approximately $1,420.25 USD. It is available through BAPE’s online store and retailers around the world.

In other news, BAPESTA loungewear shoes dropped last Saturday, Oct. 7 just in time for the winter season.
