Today we’ve got a preview of the Bodega x ASICS Gel-Classic “On The Road” collab, and it’s another heater from one of Boston’s finest boutiques. Just as we saw the revival of the Gel Epirus a couple years back, Bodega will breathe new life into the Gel-Classic for its first project of 2016. It’s been nearly 20 years since the model hit shelves, so consider this a welcomed return.
With an “On The Road” theme driving the Bodega x ASICS Gel-Classic, the colorway is more than appropriate. Earth tones and cool hues come together with ease on the upper. The menagerie of colors finds everything in play from soft blues to olive and even a beautiful clay color on the heelcap. Perforated leather and suede comprise the upper for a truly 2016 look on the vintage runner.
Our favorite aspect of the collab has to be the extra goodies. The shoes, naturally, are encased in a special co-branded box with a disposable camera inside. What a better reason to throw on your kicks and hit the road?
Look for the Bodega x ASICS Gel-Classic “On The Road” to release January 9 via the Bodega online store and its Boston location.
