Last month, we saw Korean-retailer Kasina come together with Reebok on the AXT Pump in a collaboration celebrating their 15th Anniversary.
Here we see the AXT Pump involved in another co-branded project, this time, Bodega claims responsibility. Dubbed the “Cotton Mouth”, the shoe’s are the handiwork of Bodega’s new puppet intern, Terry Blay. For his first of many Bodega collaborations, Terry had the upper of AXT Pump constructed from a buttery smooth, beige suede, which he decided to sit ontop of a gum sole. From there, Terry had the lining accented in red and finished things off by having Bodega embroidered across the heel in silver with “BOD” on the left sneaker and “EGA” on the right.
The Bodega x Reebok AXT Pump “Cotton Mouth” is scheduled to release in limited numbers on March 12th, 2011, exclusively through Bodega and will come included with a variety of Terry’s essentials – while supplies last. The essentials consist mostly of his favorite mug, mints, the “Terry Blay” ashy lip balm, imposter designer cologne, Visine and the “Terry Blay” Kolor form dress up sheet.
Check out the detailed photos below and if you’re interested in learning more about Terry and his inspiration behind the design, head on over to Bodega’s blog to read his interview with Sneaker Freaker.
