Boston’s Bodega has reunited with New Balance for a new take on the 997S, dubbed “No Bad Days”.
Back in April, Bodega released the “No Days Off” 997S which embodied the spirit of never allowing yourself to become complacent and to keep working for the things you want. “No Bad Days” is the follow-up to that. Just like its predecessor, “No Bad Days” is meant to be worn in, creased up, and transformed into beater shoes. It embodies self-control and not allowing “instinctual, physical reactions to dictate your state of being,” so you can end your day on a positive note.
The “No Bad Days” features a grey mesh upper with brown leather and suede overlays, a teal neoprene bootie with a dimple print pattern on the lateral side, dual ABZORB and ENCAP cushioning, and a black laminate heel cap. The look is completed with three different lace color options, a red embroidered 997S on the heel, and yellow on the “N” branding.
Check out the Bodega x New Balance 997S “No Bad Days” below. They will be available through in-store raffle at Bodega’s Boston and Los Angeles locations beginning Sunday 9/22 and ending Tuesday 9/24. The Bodega x New Balance 997S “No Bad Days” will also be available online Saturday 9/28 at 10 AM ET/9 AM on a first come, first served basis at bdgastore.com. Retail price is $160 USD.
