Bodega have offered their inimitable take on a wide variety of New Balance styles over the years. Fittingly, for a collaborative partner of such creative versatility, Bodega’s version of the 9060 takes inspiration from the aesthetics and spirit of the Renaissance, as the silhouette’s exaggerated Y2K-influenced proportions are rendered in a rich, varied material palette. The standard mesh upper construction becomes an exercise in texture, as traditional mesh at the toebox is complimented with spacer mesh around the ankle collar. The subtle addition of a perforated leather panel at midfoot adds an additional layer of variation, along with a flash of contrasting color. The multi-textured technique carries over to the overlays, which feature both suede and hairy suede. The renaissance influence is emphasized with a colorway featuring heavenly blue tones, accented by neutral whites, greys, and tans, recalling classical art and architecture.
