In the past, acquiring choice, ltd-edition gear usually forced you to wait out endless lines of imperious teens, only to find the best stuff picked over, or that you too forgot your mom's debit card. Save the excellent adventure for your DHL driver, with Bodega's Online Store.
Boston's craftiest convenience mart/sneaker store has turned their legendarily befuddling website into an actual e-shop, providing same-day access to a limited number of items also released in the brick & mortar location. The site begins with an updates section, tipping you off every day or two about new gear in the store, which -- this week -- includes select pieces from Public School, the HUF X Vans Satin LX Pack, and the Hong Kong collective CLOT's Winter C.S.A. collection, featuring their reflective windbreaker and "General Pea Coat", a children's book character eternally frustrated with Colonel Earmuff's ineptitude. For purchase on the site, Bodega's offering extensive picks from their own line (Camo 5 Panel and New Era caps, six different tees, Old Script and Crested hoodies, etc), their most recent Saucony collab (featuring the X Bodega Windbreaker in black and white), and three Bodega-ized colorways of the original Courageous TR model runner in premium leather, ballistic nylon, and colors and graphics based on "regional high school uniforms" (holler at your boy, Algonquin!).
In the future, Bodega plans to update online gear somewhere around "6-8 times a year" -- which totally sucks, because you told your 'rents you want it NOW.
