Reebok, HP, and and Botter 3d printed sneakers for PFW via 360 MAGAZINE.

Reebok × Botter

Reebok x Botter Concept Sneaker Engineered by HP Serves as a Sign of Innovation to Come

Coming out of Paris Fashion Week, Reebok, HP and the New Guards Group revealed a new concept sneaker with luxury brand, Botter that debuted on the runway at its FW23 presentation.

Fusing the ethos of both brands, the Reebok x Botter concept sneaker combines Botter’s love and commitment to the ocean through the unique look of a Murex seashell, an object that in legend, was used by the Greek Goddess Venus to comb her hair, with an iconic vintage Reebok football silhouette, a style that Botter is famed for reinventing with its Botter “Banker” that debuted in 2017.

The unusual and unique new form encapsulating the core shoe has been created and engineered with the HP 3D Printing team based in Barcelona using a technology called HP Multi Jet Fusion. Once printed, the gray sneakers were then hand-painted to complement the Caribbean Sea tones featured throughout Botter’s FW23 collection.

The end result is not just an innovative luxury piece, but a sustainable alternative to traditional sneaker production. The HP Multi Jet Fusion is a function created to reinvent design and manufacturing by unlocking the full potential of 3D printing and exploring techniques that are more energy efficient and sustainable. The process revolves around having no waste, uses a material called TPU that is highly-reusable once recycled, and is nimble enough to make products post-sale that can solve excessive production.

“HP has built a team of footwear industry specialists, under the lead of Don Albert, a 25-year footwear veteran. This team has developed an end-to-end solution to help large and small footwear companies in fashion and performance to reach their goals using HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology,” shared François Minec, Global Head of Polymers at HP Personalization & 3D Printing. “We enable new levels of design freedom, fast and agile product development, and a more sustainable local manufacturing process. This collaboration with Reebok and Botter is a perfect introduction of the HP solution to the footwear world.”

Speaking to the multi-brand collaboration, Nathan Jobe, Head of Footwear at NGG++ commented, “NGG and Reebok have a rich history in Street and Fashion culture. It is important to find like-minded souls in the world to partner with. Botter is very much part of our community. We were happy to be able to support their show and showcase the incredible technology of HP while doing it. This partnership really outlines a journey that thrives through design and celebrates culture and heritage to envision the future. We can’t wait to build more with them.”

“We are very excited to join forces with Reebok and envision a new future of footwear and apparel together. We aim to push the boundaries of technology and sustainability while embracing the legacy of Reebok,” added Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh, Botter.

The Reebok x Botter Concept Sneaker Engineered by HP is a project that represents the first leap into innovation, sustainability, and fashion Reebok is taking with the New Guards Group since the company’s acquisition by the Authentic Brands Group (Authentic). This debut at PFW serves as an exciting sign of things to come.

“We knew partnering with New Guards Group would allow us to push the needle, bringing consumers fresh new concepts and unexpected collaborations,” said Todd Krinsky, CEO & President of Reebok. “I’m incredibly energized by what we’ve been able to accomplish in such a short amount of time and this latest release with Botter and HP gives a small taste of what’s to come in this long-term partnership.”

CA DMV + CRYPTO

The American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) congratulates Tezos and Oxhead Alpha on their recent partnership with the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) and their continued commitment to improving the lives of people through technology.

Kevin Mehrabi, an advisor of the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) and founder of StableTech (Tezos Stable Technologies), played a role in this major milestone.

The California DMV, long-stuck in the past with paper-based technology, will now be able to take advantage of the benefits of blockchain technology thanks to this partnership. Digitizing car titles for California drivers will improve the efficiency and security of title transfers, while also streamlining the process.

Kevin Mehrabi, who serves on the advisory board of the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) and launched critical DeFi infrastructure for the growing Tezos DeFi ecosystem, said, “With this one act, the California DMV is defying the stereotype of bureaucratic inertia—the idea that government agencies are resistant to innovation. Blockchain technologies—and those based on Tezos blockchain, in particular—enable a transformative level of security and efficiency that traditional technologies fundamentally cannot, let alone at a tiny fraction of the operational cost. This will be a great demonstration of blockchain-based innovation for other US government agencies at state, local, and federal levels.”

Todd White, Founder of the American Blockchain PAC, said, “A significant blockchain use case private-public blockchain partnership has been achieved in the State of California.” 

Adelle Nazarian, CEO Of the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC) said, “This partnership between Tezos, Oxhead Alpha, and the California DMV is a victory for the blockchain industry and a step towards mass adoption. Tezos’ ability to bring cutting-edge solutions to traditional industries is impressive and I am proud to be associated with such an innovative and forward-thinking company through the American Blockchain PAC (CryptoPAC).”

LV MEN’S FW23
