Bodega x Reebok Classic Leather - 01

Bodega x Reebok Classic Leather Lux ‘U.S.B.D.G.A.’

I ragazzi di Bodega sfornano l’ennesima collaborazione del’anno e ci presentano il risultato della loro joint venture con Reebok per un’edizione premium della Classic Leather, sempre parte della serie che celebra il 30esimo anniversario del modello. Davvero niente male come sempre il makeup studiato dal team del noto sneakershop di Boston, ancora una volta ispirato da una storia legata alla cultura americana (vedi comunicato). La scarpa esce con tomaia in tessuto nylon con motivo desert camo, punta e tallone in premium suede, linguetta e parte posteriore in pelle con loghi in embossed, intersuola bianca con gumsole. Probabilmente, una delle più originali e curate versioni della Classic Leather tra le tante uscite quest’anno per l’anniversario. Uscita programmata per questo Sabato 19 Ottobre anche online.

With their first Reebok collaboration in over two years, Bodega brings a military aesthetic to the “U.S.B.D.G.A.” Drawing from a history of military nicknames assigned to specialized military divisions a la The Screaming Eagles, the Bodega unit are the “Killer Bee Stingers”. A purveyor of hidden gems and hard-to-find goods, Bodega styles itself as a special military unit, with this Reebok collaboration being a part of the unit’s uniform. Click through for release info and some more visual knowledge.

Featuring a desert camouflage mid-panel, the “U.S.B.D.G.A.” possesses two suede panels: a mustard suede perforated toe-box and a peanut butter suede heel cup. The heel tab is accented by a heel tab with tri-color stripes similar to stripes designated to enlisted members of the military. The Bodega logo, embossed on the tongue of the sneakers, compliments the pair with a subtle touch, while the name “Bodega Stingers” imprints the heels of the shoes to display the wearer’s allegiance. An off-white midsole and gum outsole accents the collaboration. Lastly, a Bodega patch stamps the left sole, featuring the division motto: Don’t Get Stung.

An extra pair of red laces will be included in the box. An accompanying t-shirt featuring a bee pin-up girl, recalling the military aircraft nose art before the 1993 government order of gender- neutral decorations, is also included with the sneakers.
