To counter the “Can’t Beat LA” Collection designed in collaboration with LA-based Undefeated, Converse reached out to a Beantown favorite to have the shop whip up a little something honoring their Celtics. The boutique of choice for this exclusive project, none other then Bodega.
Just like the Lakers series from UNDFTD, the Bodega x Converse collaboration features a pair of Chuck Taylor’s and a matching tee. However, instead of using Boston’s “Beat LA” battle cry, the sneakers and t-shirt keep Boston’s legacy of championships fresh in the minds Lakers fan’s. As well as Celtics fans who are damn proud of their teams 17 championships, two more then the Lakers’ 15. Printed on the white Chuck Taylor’s is the phrase “The Destiny Continues” in green lettering with “Bodega” beneath it in black. To coincide with shoes a tee was designed which features the message “One More To Go” with a foam finger design on the sleeve.
Luckily for those who live in the Boston area and happened to stop by Bodega this past weekend, they were awarded with a free pair of sneakers and a free tee which required no purchase what-so-ever. Bodega had 50 pairs to dispense and instead of selling them off they dished them off to their fellow Bostonian’s on a first come, first serve basis.
