Delving into History: The Creation Process

The journey towards collaboration began over two years ago when Bode embarked on a visit to the Nike DNA archives at the brand's headquarters in Oregon. Immersed in the rich history of Nike, Bode drew inspiration from the pioneering work of Bill Bowerman, the brand's late co-founder. This exploration culminated in the creation of the Bode Rec. x Nike Astrograbber, a sneaker that pays homage to Nike's heritage while infusing it with Bode's distinctive aesthetic. Available in both "Black" and "Natural" colorways, the Astrograbber draws from the 1970s model of the same name, reimagined with contemporary elements and nostalgic charm.

Historical Touchstones and Design Elements

Drawing from historical references spanning the 18th to the 20th centuries, the collaboration encompasses a diverse range of design elements inspired by significant moments in sporting history. From the 1770s boat race between Manhattan and Cape Cod to the cultural impact of television and full-time athletes in the 1970s, each piece in the collection tells a unique story. Jerseys adorned with appliqués, striped wool sweaters, and embroidered motifs pay homage to iconic sporting moments, while pinnies, track pants, and jogging shorts exude a playful yet functional aesthetic.
