Following it’s popular Animal Camo Air Max 1 collaboration with Nike, Japanese retailer atmos comes through with another camo rendition via the Nike Air Max 90 Premium Camo Pack. Utilizing two different patterns, Duck Infra Camo and 3M Tiger Camo, atmos gives the sneakers a new look. The Duck Infra Camo pair features the bright red highlights of the classic Air Max 90 sneaker, with a contrasting dark green/forest green/brown camo color palette. In contrast, the 3M Tiger Camo sneakers use a black/tiger camo print, offering a slightly more subtle take. However, the 3M material that outlines the mesh and leather upper offers a bright accent. A black speckled midsole and black sole compliment the pair. Hit the jump for release info and more visual knowledge.

It may sound like a cliché, but honesty is a virtue. For Bodega, the brand strives to remain true to its roots on the quiet side-streets of downtown Boston. They don’t troll fashion blogs and bite off the designs of their contemporaries. Instead, they mix, clash, and experiment to come up with something fresh and original.

But no matter the change in the game, the goal is always the same: create humble designs that stay true to the Bodega character.
Back for another one, our William Yu collected some roundtable feedback from the Bodega team – co-owners Jay Gordon and Dan Natola, and Bodega designers Marvin Bynoe and Randy Price - to discuss Bodega’s evolution, the challenges of building a line, and the Bodega identity.
