The freeform spirit of exploration previously suggested by ‘all-terrain’ is adapted for an age of careful deliberation and collective responsibility, with the X-Racer, a streamlined take on the overtly technical, speculative future designs of the late ‘90s and early 2000s. This mixed material approach to adaptable functionality is rooted in a DIY background where ‘essential’ reflects a clarity of purpose, and not a straitjacketing of opportunity. The newest collaborative, Bodega x New Balance project is new utility for a changing world. #bodegaxracer #bodega #bdgastore
Bodega is following last year’s 997S with a new collaboration alongside New Balance. This time around, the Boston/Los Angeles retailer has worked on the brand’s X-Racer sneaker, giving it an all-terrain makeover.
Bodega has taken to social media to debut the collaborative shoe and provide some insight behind the design. According to the post, the X-Racer is rooted in a DIY background, featuring a mixed material upper.
The Trail-ready sneaker boasts a retro-themed color scheme, complete with pops of vibrant colors. A speckled effect has been applied to the midsole, further adhering to the old school concept.
“The newest collaborative, Bodega x New Balance project is new utility for a changing world,” Bodega said. Be sure to check back with us for additional info on the collaboration, including release details.
