Americana Aesthetics Inspire the Bodega x Vault By Vans Chukka ‘Mid-Top Modern’ PackRelease: 14 April 2023
Bodega has been on a tear with collaborations in 2023, colabing with adidas, HOKA, and Saucony, respectively, in 2023. Now the Boston and LA-based retailer is teaming up with Vault By Vans on two colourways of the Chukka OG that tap into the post-war and mid-century modern periods of the United States.
The collaborative ‘Mid-Top Modern’ pack is dropping in two colourways, Terra Cotta and Pistachio, both using a mesh tongue that takes inspiration from Rattan chairs of the time period. The Terra Cotta colourway features a suede upper with Gingerbread trim throughout, using tones that were popular during the mid-century modern era. Pistachio Green striping accents the Black vulcanised sidewall with the iconic Vans gum outsole finishing off the shoe.
The Pistachio colourway uses canvas with Caramel suede on the trim, using the surplus of uniforms and clothing available in post-war America. Caramel trim is seen on the striping of the Gum sidewall with the same hue featured on the outsole.
The Bodega x Vault By Vans Chukka OG ‘Mid-Top Modern’ is set to drop on April 14, 2023, via bdgastore.com and in-store at Bodega Boston and LA for $115.
