Bodega’s work with Mark McNairy carries on with two new reinventions of the Derby Shoe and the Brogue Boot. Featuring a pony hair front, a black nubuck saddle, and a corduroy rear, the Derby shoe sits on a commando sole with a natural leather welt. In an olive-green, the Brogue boot is reminiscent of our previous McNairy team-up, but features wool panels and suede brogues set on a vibram christy sole. Designed by Bodega in the Las Vegas summer heat, the collaborations continue to take a fresh perspective on traditional classics. If you’re looking to ride through the summer on a new saddle, the Leopard Saddle Derby Shoe and the Olive Wool Country Brogue Boot is now available both in-store and online for USD $523 and $588, respectively.

Since its well-documented inception in 2006, Bodega’s appreciation of the arts is well known. From starting the acclaimed gallery, The Fourth Wall Project, as well as hosting works by both famous and up and coming artists on the store walls; Bodega keeps pushing the limits of where art can be valued and recognized. Bodega continually seeks to find new and innovative ways to collaborate with artists and create exclusive works. Read the rest of this entry »Share on Facebook
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. Enter the Bodega SS13 Collection. Once again, the Bodega team ventures into new ground, featuring a Vans sneaker collaboration, while also building upon the successes of the SS12 line. 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.

BOSTON, MA – Inspired by the 1960’s Mods and Rockers subcultures, Bodega collaborates with Converse in the release of the Ride or Die pack, featuring the Converse Pro Leather. Combining modernist subtleties with a masculine edge, the Ride or Die pack employs a variety of unorthodox materials that clash and brawl with each other. The Pro Leather Ox features fine detail accented against premium black leather. While the Pro Leather mid employs pony hair that gives the sneaker an understated sheen typical of high fashion pieces. Though the Pro Leather originated with Dr. J on the basketball court, Bodega’s Ride or Die pack fits whether you’re on your bike doing 100mph down the highway or kicking back while listening to The Who. In changing the way Converse’s classic silhouette is interpreted, Bodega continues to reset expectations and create innovative designs.
The Ride or Die pack was produced in very limited numbers, each shoe comes with a t-shirt, pins and extra’s. The pack will be available online at midnight on Thursday, November 22nd and in-store on Black Friday, November 23rd.
