The sneaker culture in the United States has undergone a renaissance of sorts with classic 90′s runners. Brands like Saucony that have niche appeal to vintage sneaker collectors have regained popularity thanks to the unforeseen spotlight placed on collaborative releases with well-respected sneaker boutiques, and the U.S., typically heavy on basketball sneakers and Air Jordans, have embraced the retro styling that is so popular overseas. Sneakers like the Saucony Shadow, Asics Gel Lyte III, Nike Air Pegasus, and other distinctly “1990′s” models have once again found themselves a flourishing home in the sneaker game.

The relationship between Saucony and Boston-based sneaker shop Bodega is to be credited for catalyzing this rebirth of sorts, and so the duo used this opportunity to re-introduce to the public a classic model that has laid dormant in the Saucony vault for years. The Saucony Grid 9000 is a tech-heavy performance sneaker, featuring Grid cushioning on the heel, forefoot E.V.A., polyurethane rear, and a dual-densite midsole – perfect for high-mileage runners who expect optimal performance or for others just looking for a fresh new style for the street. The set of four included in the Bodega x Saucony Elite Grid 9000 pack combines that robust package of engineering with luxurious materials like suede, wool, rip-stop nylon, and leather. The Grid 9000 is obscure no more. Continue reading for a detailed look at the Bodega x Saucony Elite Grid 9000 and look out for these at select retailers soon, because FootPatrol in the UK will have them in stock on September 15th.

Bodega x Nike Sportswear Footscape ‘Night Cat’ Pack – Release Reminder

May 27th, 2011 by | 4 comments

However difficult it may sound, it’s important that you not walk under a ladder, break a mirror or open an umbrella indoors while reading this post.  We wouldn’t want you to get strapped with several sets of seven years’ bad luck, but then again, some cultures believe that a black cat isn’t a specter, but rather a harbinger of good things to come.  So with that in mind, it’s fitting that Boston’s Bodega picked the ‘Night Cat’ as its theme for this collaboration with Nike Sportswear celebrating the boutique’s fifth anniversary.  On one hand, Bodega is unlucky to have Cambridge’s Concepts right down the road competing with them for the title of New England’s best sneaker shop, but on the other, they’re quite fortunate with how well this pack of Footscape Woven Chukka and Footscape Woven Motions has turned out.  Click through to see some more images of the Bodega x Nike Footscape Woven Motion courtesy of Kenlu and look out for these tomorrow at select NSW retailers like 21 Mercer, or pick up a pair now on eBay.

With Saucony and Bodega sharing the same neighborhood, a collaboration was bound to happen. Last year’s Bodega x Saucony Elite collection emphasized great materials and can’t-miss colorways, so Phase Two of this growing partnership had a hefty task in outdoing its predecessor.Here’s a detailed look at the Bodega x Saucony Elite Phase Two, which features the Saucony Jazz ’91 and Shadow 6000; again, the fine materials are in use once again, with a special twist on a midsole given a pre-yellowed ‘vintage’ treatment (that’s the way it should be done). The two tonal joints in grey and red are particularly eye-catching, while the multi-colored affairs certainly do its share to elbow its way into the spotlight. The lone Jazz ’91 has the retro look down to a tee. CrookedTongues has the entire Pack available now, so take a moment to review these new detailed images and let us know what you think.

Bodega x Reebok Pump AXT ‘Cotton Mouth’

Given Boston’s status as college capital of the US, it should come as no surprise that some of the most innovative sneaker collaborations come from Beantown boutiques.  Concepts consistently raises the bar and with Bodega’s identity based in a rich theme, this one seems like something of a logical progression.  And even with this context established, the Bodega x Reebok Pump AXT ‘Cotton Mouth’ remains one of the most wildly unique tag team efforts we’ve ever seen.

The story starts with BDGA ‘intern’ Terry Blay, a name you’re probably not all that familiar with, considering dude’s more or less a Muppet.  So apparently Terry blacked out after a wild party during his short stint at Parsons, woke up in a classmate’s sneaker closet and found his entire life changed.  From that point Blay was obsessed with kicks and cites the ‘Tennis Ball’ Court Victory Pump as a key influence for this project.  His ‘Cotton Mouth’ rendition is equally well-conceived, a beige suede banger with red accents and a gum sole that’ll come with an array of Blay-inspired extras when they drop next Saturday, March 12th.  They’re sure to be an instant sellout and the level of detail involved in the concept rivals the very best collaborations of all time, so click through to see more of the BDGA x Reebok AXT and let us know what you think, then head over to SneakerFreaker to read their interview with Terry Blay.
