Bodega collaborates with Rockport to create the Town and Country Bayshore.Bodega step on deck in a big way with their new collaboration with leisure and sports shoe enthusiasts Rockport. Bodega and Rockport fused to produce this project based on a set of shared ideals. Since their inception, both Massachusetts based companies have been in search of creating the perfect shoe. Rockport, founded nearly 40 years ago out of the back of a VW minibus kept a simple philosophy in mind; the perfect shoe had yet to be created. Keeping with this quest the design team at Bodega added subtle features to enhance a classic silhouette. The result of this project is two new models, Town & Country which are based off of Rockport’s classic boat shoe the Bayshore.
Shout out to the big homie Marka 27 making big moves. Check him out on www.boldfacers.com.Victor Quinonez says he’s lucky to be alive. Born in Mexico, he grew up in a rough section of East Dallas, rife with drugs and violence. As a teenager, he applied to the magnet Booker T. Washington School for the Performing and Visual Arts because it was considered the safest school in the area. He got in. He discovered his passion for art. And despite a three-month stint in jail for defacing property with graffiti, he was on his way—to Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts, and on a full scholarship, too.
