Original Story (06/05/20): After an incredibly hyped set of 997S colorways last year, it looks like Boston boutique Bodega and New Balance are teaming up on another new model to release soon.
New Balance fan accounts have received early pairs of the new model, which appears to be a retro hiking-inspired makeover of the brand’s X-Racer model. The X-Racer All-Terrain features completely revamped ripstop and suede paneling including a stitched New Balance N on the lateral side and a printed hot pink logo on the medial side. The shoe also appears to use significantly heftier lockdown mechanisms than the mainline X-Racer, and it features straps holding down the laces and tongue (which features a removable Bodega-patterned loop). Finally, the shoe marries the X-Racer’s sculpted ABZORB midsole with a rugged trail-ready outsole.
While specifics on release date and pricing are TBA, the circulation of early pairs suggests that more info is imminent. Check out the photos below and stay tuned for updates on the Bodega x New Balance X-Racer All-Terrain.
