Insta Pump Fury — Collegiate Royal/Swag Orange/Grey/White


Alongside the Respect Pack version of the Fury, Reebok Classics have (fairly quietly) released this tidy colourway, in amongst the ongoing smorgasbord of collab makeups for this 20 year old shoe (and still 20 years ahead of its time). More pics after the jump. Reebok UK —BokOne Read the rest of this entry

Insta Pump Fury ‘Ghost in the Shell – LOGICOMA’


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

Insta Pump Fury X INVINCIBLE ‘Cattleya’

Now these are brutal. Ok, calling a pair of sneakers featuring a Hawaiian flora-and-fauna-inspired print upper might be pushing it a little but following last years’ stunning ‘Koi/Childrens Day’ releases (and the hugely-popular Aape collabs) I think these are right up there as personal favourite treatments.

The pink detailing may not be to everybodys’ liking however, but Taiwans’ INVINCIBLE has clearly put a great deal of effort into these. Available from INVINCIBLE on May 31st (possibly signed too…), and Reebok Certified Network stores soon after. More pics after the jump —BokOne  Read the rest of this entry

Sneaker Politics X Reebok Classics — Pump Fury OG ‘Rougarou’

large (2)

The “Rougarou” takes its name from a childhood fairytale popular in Lafayette, LA, which describes an imaginary werewolf-type character that kidnaps disobedient youth. Sneaker Politics represented the legendary beast with brown horsehide leather on the upper, laid over with black neoprene for superior fit. These forest-like colors are paired with speckled green and orange through the midsole and at the signature pump. 

Available from Sneaker Politics in the US on April 11th and from Swedens’ SneakersNStuff on April 12th, as well as all Reebok Certified Network stores.
