Summer Sneaker Bliss: The Bodega x Vans Coming to America Collection


The summer sneaker dream – something weather- and mood-appropriate without be SO exclusively summer that if you rock them in October you end up looking like a got-damn fool. Enter the Coming to America collection – a collaboration between Boston shop Bodega + Vans. A perfect blend of bright summer colors and light summer textures, but nothing that keeps it in the Memorial-Labor Day purgatory.

A bit more info on the collection from Bodega:

Our design team recently paired up with Vans to create the ‘Coming to America’ Pack. The collection consists of three different and intricately designed OG Authentic LX models. Each color way features patterned fabrics that have African origins. The sneaker comes with an “Off the Wall” branded box and cinch bag with additional raw hyde laces. The Vans logo still appears on the upper, while a hidden Bodega logo is printed on the insole. Other unique features include tortoise shell lace eyelets, top edge leather piping, and gum toes. This collection stays true to our mission; to curate and create, rare quality goods. Releasing this Saturday 6.22.13 for $110 each, the collection will be available both in-store and online.

And for real, how perfect do these look standing in the grass:


I hope they’re available in small enough sizes so the ladies can get in on this, too!
