This is now the second collaboration between Reebok and Megahousetoys (which, if I’m not mistaken owns the rights to merchandising the Ghost in the Shell franchise) following on from a 2012 collab. This pair is apparently inspired by the LOGICOMA artificial intelligence Robot from the series, with the 2012 release being inspired by the TACHIKOMA robot.
The impressive use of materials on this shoe are clear to see, with the toebox perforated metal being especially unique. I’m really loving the whole ‘toy’ aesthetic to these, it’s the subtleties like the matte grey and black midsole that really bring this home.
This is another very exciting Insta Pump collab that I hope will keep enhancing Reebok Classics’ visibility in the sneaker mainstream (even though this shoe is actually far away from that mainstream). Available this month, I’ll post further details on availability soon. Some info and photos via Hypebeast
