The BAPE Mountain Soldier is the biggest climbing creation since Homer Simpson tried to climb Mt. Springfield. These shoes are beautiful, way too beautiful to hike or climb anything with.

Hiking boots are not meant to look good. Some do, of course, but most hiking shoes place function over form. The BAPE Mountain Soldier looks like it could take a hill or two with ease, but would you really want that? Just look at how pretty these shoes are. I wouldn't have the heart to get them dirty.
