Boston’s cult streetwear store Bodega may fly under the radar behind a No.06 convenience deli in Back Bay West, and hidden under the facade of a loading bay in LA, but when it comes to collaboration the US institution knows how to make a statement.
Honouring this season’s football fandom, the Massachusetts retailer links up with adidas’ to capture the fervour of the Sobakov silhouette, striking a winning combination with earthy tones to the uppers with distinct flashes of orange and 3M reflective elements.
The soccer-inspired Sobakov features a heavily-treaded cupsole, crafted here from translucent rubber. The wraparound reflective three-stripes and red/black accenting call to mind a golden age of adidas soccer boots, namely the Precision version of the adidas Predator. Bodega brings soccer styling into the lifestyle arena through the use of buttery, weathered ‘bone’ suede: a design choice that encapsulates the pack’s premium take on heritage details.
