Bodega x New Balance 577 ‘HYPRCAT’

Boston retailer Bodega teams up with New Balance for their 577 “HYPRCAT,” inspired by the ’90s video game Star Fox. The Bodega x New Balance 577 ‘HYPRCAT’ models its design from the game’s outer space setting and vintage graphics. The predominantly light-colored low-tops are presented with bright color pops throughout and the outsole in a light translucent blue, which is said to give a 3D feeling to the 577. These colorful kicks feature a fine upper construction, comprised of premium suede and nubuck.


A detailed look at Bodega x New Balance 577 “HYPRCAT” pairs a mostly light grey upper while a variety of bright accenting shades complement throughout.  Perforated nubuck suede on the toe and tongue aid in breathability, soft pink neoprene lining provides comfort. The classic New Balance “N” logo is a yellow stitched suede on top of a smooth donegal fleck fleece midsection that ties in the colorful accents found throughout the rest of the design. The heel tab and parts of the mid panel are a soft purple suede giving it a nice contrast with cream laces to tie the whole thing together. Of course what makes this “HYPRCAT” edition of the 577 particulary unique is the special tongue graphic detailing, with corresponding custom graphic insoles.

Having released September 7th at Bodega, please check back when the Bodega x New Balance 577 “HYPRCAT” make their appearance at UBIQ, which will be an online only release –
