Hidden in Plain Sight: adidas Consortium x Bodega

Hidden in Plain Sight: adidas Consortium x Bodega
For their FW18 collaboration with adidas Consortium, the team behind Boston’s renowned Bodega apply their combined sneakerhead instincts to two acclaimed silhouettes: the recently launched, terrace-culture inspired Kamanda, and another new style for 2018, the Sobakov. Applying the same ‘hidden in plain sight’ approach that led to the creation of their convenience-store shopfront, each pair incorporates a host of unusual details and cultural references without ever detracting from their distinctive silhouettes.


The Bodega iteration of the Kamanda sees it's update in a fusion of premium suede and techy textiles, featuring a subtle Bodega graphic print. The eye-catching cupsole here is molded from translucent rubber for even more impact. Together with the recent C.P. Company version of the shoe, 2018 is seeing the Kamanda gain its rightful place on the feet of discerning soccer culture fans.






From the iconic eighties to the thrilling present: the second Bodega collaboration for FW2018 is based on a lifestyle shoe that debuted earlier this year. Like its spiritual predecessor the Kamanda, 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.
