This has to be my absolute favourite news I have ever had the pleasure to spread…. and its NOT a Jordan post! I’m a bit of a comic girl so this is like sneaker Christmas and birthdays all wrapped into one!
Reebok have collaborated with the one and only Marvel to bring you a collection of sneakers based on some of Marvels most iconic characters.
The collection features classic models of Reebok sneakers redesigned with details and colour-ways to reflect Marvel superheroes or villains, such as; Captain America, Red Skull, Wolverine, Sabretooth, Spider-Man, Venom, Black Widow, The White Queen (Emma Frost), Deadpool & Chamber.
Captain America will be featured on the Reebok Ventilator, first released in the ’90s. The design includes material and colors that have been inspired by Captain America’s uniform with scale embossed overlays that mimic his armor.
Red Skull will be featured on the new Pump Omni HLS shoe, Using military inspired materials, with a textured leather tongue (reminiscent of Red Skull’s face, which is featured on the insole),not forgetting the HYDRA logo on the heel.
I particularly admire how they have captured Sabretooth’s true characteristics using the Reebok Night Sky Mid. Featuring different textures and colours to reflect a true likeness, right down to the Reebok Classic logo being slashed on the tongue.
NOW for the ladies… Black Widow will be featured on the ever so classic and still popular, Reebok Freestyle which first debuted in 1982. The design uses materials that mimic her shiny leather suit and show-stopping red hair, along with gold Velcro straps and a Black Widow logo hangtag. Vice versa for the Emma Frost (White Queen) sneaker. Her shoe also features the X-Men logo on the tongue and a diamond hangtag.
Check out the rest of the collection below!
Although my school girl crush would have really appreciated some Thor kicks, I have to say these will do quite nicely for now, I want them ALL!
