Being from NY I can’t say I’m much of a Boston Red Sox fan. Then again though, I don’t watch much of baseball to begin with, I’m just use to being around the Red Sox hatred so I’ve come to adapt to it. This is nothing against Boston as a city though, as I got a lot of respect for the people and the boutiques, shout out to Johnny Cupcakes, and specially Bodega who’s been granted as Boston’s own retailer to stock a very exclusive upcoming collaboration been Vault by Vans and the MLB.
In this rare occasion Major League Baseball has offered Vault by Vans an exclusive license to produce a limited amount of footwear baring the logos of MLB teams in what is known as the Opening Day Collection. The selected teams will have their logos worked into a pair of Vans which will be releasing in extremely limited quantities through one lucky boutique in the corresponding city for each team. To go along with the sneakers there’s a matching Majestic jersey, which is authentic by the way, with an included Vans tag stitched onto the jersey.
For a version honoring the Boston Red Sox Vault by Vans selected the Authentic LX which they draped with a solid white leather upper. Making the sneakers as authentic as can be and keeping them in line with the jersey, raised embroidery of the Boston “B” is included on the heel in the signature red tone with a black outline. Bodega is the only retailer in Boston who will be stocking the sneakers and with only 12 pairs being made available you can bet these will be gone as soon as the doors swing open. A Majestic Boston Red Sox Jersey will also be available, but it has not been made clear whether or not it’s included with the sneakers.
