Reviving the forgotten Grid Azura 2000

The Grid Azura 2000 was left to collect dust on the shelves until Bodega, a retailer, helped pull the silhouette out from the archives. Moving to a new millennium, the no-longer-a-secret sneaker features a bold shape that will shake the streets. With its toothy overlays and see-through, mono mesh windows on the toe box and side panels, you can enjoy taking a walk on hot summer days.

Grid Azura 2000's color blocking

Some colorways of the Azura 2000 have their unique characteristics. For instance, the white/blue/lime model is a vegan sneaker, which means that there are no animals harmed in the making of the shoe. 

The white/black/neon silhouette is by the early morning walk home after a long night out in Tokyo, and the influence of vintage Bozozoku street culture. The combination of the colors shows dimmed Neo Tokyo lights that intertwine with the dawn mist of a waking city.

Bodega created a unique iteration of the Grid Azura 2000, too. The Ever Ready colorway features a radical color blocking on the upper, a black speckled midsole, and a multicolored outsole.
