One in every 20 pairs of the “Fauna Brown” colorway will come with a pack of limited sports cards that includes a voucher for a free pair of the exclusive “Friends and Family” iteration when it drops on December 28th at bdgastore.com for $120 USD.
UPDATE 12/17: Bodega has confirmed that their Nike Dunk High “Legend” collaboration will release on Monday, December 28th for $120 USD via bdgastore.com followed by another drop via SNKRS on December 30th.
The Dunk High Legend is defined by raw material textures and colors. The rich quality of pebble leather is paired with both standard and hairy suede, for a lived in look that evokes aesthetic timelessness and physical longevity, with rawhide lacing and boot stitch detailing adding a touch of old-fashioned craftsmanship. Modern elements are incorporated with embossed, branding iron style ‘Bodega’ wordmark branding placed opposite a tortoiseshell, jewel Swoosh. The feeling of discovery is also given a subtle, literal place in the Dunk’s design, in the form of a stash pocket.
This is a shoe that can be categorized along the lines of classic Americana. Like an old mitt and baseball, or a saddle and boots, the Dunk High Legend is something to be kept for years, not fashion seasons. It builds character with every use, and is built to be used over a lifetime. Then, one day, when you’re much older, you’ll pull your old friend off a dusty shelf, and pass the legend on to a new generation.
UPDATE 12/14: Nike releases official photos of the Bodega x Nike Dunk High “Fauna Brown” releasing hopefully before the year ends.
