Charles and Ray Eames, renowned for their groundbreaking contributions to furniture, industrial design, films, exhibitions, toys, and architecture, approached problem-solving as an adventurous journey.

Drawing on the legacy of Charles and Ray Eames, the collection is a testament to the office’s enduring influence on modern design, as told through the playful reinterpretation of Reebok’s Classic Nylon, Instapump Fury 96, and Beatnik Sandal.
The FW23 Reebok x Eames collection boasts a trio of iconic footwear styles, each infused with Eames’ distinctive aesthetic:
Reebok x Eames Classic Nylon: Retailing at $130 USD, this unisex Eames Classic Nylon takes inspiration from Reebok’s timeless Classic Nylon shoe, a design that has become an icon in the athletic footwear industry. The shoe’s side window features the Eames name in the designer’s distinctive colors which pays homage to the Eameses’ mastery of color. With a custom Eames footbed and tongue label, each step in these sneakers is a journey into the world of design excellence. The custom Eames box and five laces add a touch of exclusivity to this limited-edition release.
Reebok x Eames Instapump Fury 95: Priced at $200 USD, the unisex Eames Instapump Fury 95 is a bold reinterpretation of the Reebok Instapump Fury, a silhouette that has made waves in the sneaker world since its inception. This collaboration merges the innovative design of the Instapump Fury with the creative genius of Charles and Ray Eames through a nod to Eames’ visionary contribution to the still futuristic IBM pavilion designed for the 1964 World’s Fair. The shoe features an Eames branded pump bladder and heel, showcasing the Eameses’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of design and technology. A custom Eames footbed ensures maximum comfort, while the custom box adds a touch of elegance to this high-performance sneaker.
