2018 Winner: Bodega


Bodega’s storefront may be hidden in plain sight, but most of the kicks in this shoe shop (disguised as a convenience store) are far from understated. Its shelves are brimming with bright colors from Boston’s own New Balance Nor’easter and avant-garde styles courtesy of Raf Simons’ futuristic deconstructed Replicant Ozwego. Plus, collaborations with Adidas, END. Clothing and other of-the-moment brands make Bodega a shoe destination worth running to for sneaker junkies.


6 Clearway St., Boston
