The first few months of 2023 have been busy for Bodega as it has indulged in a variety of collaborative projects such as its DW-5600 watch with G-SHOCK, Campus and ADIMATIC team-ups with adidas and its latest initiative with HOKA ONE ONE. And now this month, the streetwear and footwear retailer is partnering with Vault by Vans to produce an OG Chukka LX “Mid-Top Modern” Pack.
The sneaker-focused batch contains two colorways that tap into the post-war, mid-century time period as a nod to when Vans infiltrated the sneaker scene, and this era is expressed through both takes that are styled with palettes inspired by mid-century interior design. One pair is fitted with suede to speak to the period’s rough-out material that surprised the pop culture realm while the other comes made with canvas to call-out workwear. Additionally, each is treated with breathable mesh tongues, vulcanized rubber sole units and branded insoles and lace tips.
Check out.a detailed look at each pair in the gallery above and note that Bodega’s online store as well as its flagships in Boston and LA will be dropping them on April 14.
