2020 has been a great year for Nike Dunk’s fanatics. Many good releases came out, and so many people who held on to their pairs during the Dunks heyday got to cash out in the process. As bad as 2020 was to most people, it has been a good year for sneakerheads (and NXTDROP tbh).
In our latest episode, we took a closer look at the Bodega x Dunk High Legend collaboration. I have to be honest; I did not think the shoes were nice the first time I saw them online. It was just too much for me, and I didn’t like the stitch detailing at all. But to my surprise, I had a very different reaction when I got to see them in person and touch and feel them. I was 1000% wrong about the shoe, the detailing may be too much, but the raw material feels too good. One thing I have learned this year is that pictures don’t do justice to sneakers. I’ve hated the Union LA x Air Jordan 4 when they revealed the pair. But that’s a discussion for another day.
It may or may not be tough to find something to wear these shoes with, depending on your style, but I believe these pairs are worth purchasing. I like when the collaborators decide to go the extra mile and bring in new materials. It gives a breath of fresh air to the sneakers. Anyone can take a shoe and change the color palette, but to take the current product and add your sauce to it creates something magic like this. The creators at Bodega have been doing this for more than a decade now. They are legends in the industry. Big shout out to the whole team at Bodega.
