Abide by New England tradition of long ago, where a congregation of Protestant rituals in protest against the Catholic Church filled the streets of Boston on November 5th, also known as the Pope Night. This year Boston’s BODEGA is bringing back a hint of it, at least in the unsavory criminality that exist in those days, in the form of the Fisticuffs Boots. A 396-unit collaboration with footwear maker Palladium, the Fisticuffs Boots is a revisit of extinct street gangs, dapper gents with knives and the contrasting elements of the time.
Armed with a premium leather vamp juxtaposed with the herringbone overlay and a wool lined foot bed, the Fisticuffs emanated the look of the gentleman delinquent. Each laser-etched with BODEGA logo along the tongue and numbered with 5 buyers getting the chance to take home the “Essentials Kit”, a required tool kit for any stylish criminals:
– French Opinel Pocket Knife
– Seki Japanese Straight Edge Nail Clipper
– Real Badger Hair Shaving Brush from England
– E Shave Shaving Soap
– Merkur of Germany Classic Steel Razor
The 5 lucky buyers will be announced this coming Saturday, November 13th, on BODEGA’s website. Meanwhile, to enter, simply purchase the Fisticuffs Boots from BODEGA’s newly revamped online store or pay a visit to the store in Boston.
