Generally featuring a run-down storefront, bodegas are known to be hiding soemthing deeper within. For those who aren’t in the know, deception is the name of the game. It’s no surprise that Boston-based Bodega chose the Converse Poorman Weapon for their next collab; a bodega truly is poor man’s weapon – where else are you going to buy a loose cigarette and a 25-cent neon blue drink in one place?
The Bodega x Converse Poorman Weapon is a super high-top that can be rolled down for a different look. The upper is constructed of canvas, while the inner is lined with deerskin leather – a material commonly seen on motorcycle gloves. Deerskin leather showcases astounding strength and resistence to abrasion while regulating temperature (cool during the day, warm at night). Dropping next Saturday on March 13th, the Bodega collab will be released with a price tag of $120 limited to 100 sets, boxed in a custom ballistic nylon case.
