Editor’s Notes: Bodega has officially unveiled its latest collaboration with New Balance, the subject of which is the 997S. The theme of the collaboration is “No Days Off,” which speaks to the versatility and durability of the model.
While some sneakers are made for a very specific purpose in mind, or with materials and colors that are both hard to match and wear in inclement weather, this collab is different. Bodega aims to make this 997S a sneaker you can wear whenever you want, with whatever you want.
The mesh upper is outfitted with leather and distressed suede overlays. ABZORB and ENCAP cushioning technology, as well as a embossed neoprene bootie provide extra comfort.
According to Bodega, “You’re familiar with the sneakerhead stock comedy character, guy who puts plastic bags on his shoes in the rain? This shoe is the exact opposite. This is a shoe for wearing every day, for taking outside, for doing actual stuff in. Wear it in the rain; get dirt on it.”
The Bodega x New Balance 997S “No Days Off” drops April 4 on NTWRK before a wider release on April 6. Check out the sneaker in detail above.
