Collaborating together for the first time in over two years, Boston superstore Bodega teams up with Reebok Classic to bring us a very special sneaker. Influenced by military aesthetics and traditions, the aptly named “U.S.B.D.G.A.” draws from the idea of nicknamed special military divisions – for example The Screaming Eagles – with Bodega’s unit the “Killer Bee Stingers.” Styling itself as a military unit, the sneaker collab with Reebok forms part of their uniform.

Drawing from both the military and bee influences, the sneaker comes in a desert camouflage/mustard/peanut butter/royal blue colorway. The desert camouflage mid-panel separates mustard and peanut butter suede on the upper, while a light grey tongue, off-white midsole and gum outsole ground the look. A royal blue collar and tricolor heel tab add military touches, while an embossed Bodega logo on the tongue, “Bodega Stingers” at the heel, and a printed Bodega stamp featuring the unit’s motto “Don’t get stung” features on the left insole.

The shoes come with an extra pair of red laces and accompanying T-shirt with a bee pin-up girl print, in the style of old military posters. These are sure to sell out quick when they launch on October 19.
