Vans Vault x Bodega – “Return of the Dragon” Caballero LX & Half Cab LX (6.3.17) @bdgastore #bodega

 

Vans and Bodega enter the dragon, so to speak, with a new collaborative release that combines the extraordinary feats of the dragon with the pay it forward spirit of the hóngbāo.  This is the first time that the Caballero signature model (aka the Full Cab) has been used in a collaboration with Vans Vault, and you can always expect Bodega to bring something original to the table.  The Vans Vault x Bodega Full Cab LX & Half-Cab LX, the signature shoes of the legendary Steve Caballero, are decked out in reptilian scales inspired by skateboarding’s very own flying dragon.  They also decided to include a few panels of pony hair to put the pack really over the top.  Chinese restaurant themed apparel, complete with take-out containers adds Bodega’s neighborhood spirit into the mix.  The hóngbāo included with every pair of shoes contain best wishes for everyone, but a few lucky recipients will get an extra windfall of good fortune.  All in all, the design for the pack is wild, and the earth-tones suit the overall aesthetic perfectly.  Great job Bodega, as usual!

The Bodega x Vans Vault ‘Return of the Dragon’ Pack releases on Saturday, June 3rd – available exclusively through Bodega at 11am EST both in-store and online. Retail is set at $155 for the Full Cab and $120 for the Half-Cab.
