REEBOK’S “I3 MOTORSPORTS” CAMPAIGN

Today, Reebok officially unveils its highly anticipated “Street Sleigh” footwear and apparel collection, championed by moto-inspired takes on the brand’s iconic retro footwear models: the Question Mid and new Classic Leather Legacy. Introducing the brand’s “I3 Motorsports” narrative, which highlights Reebok’s relationship to bike life through the lens of its original rough rider Allen Iverson, the “Street Sleigh” pack is available December 15, 2020 from Reebok.com, Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line, among other local retailers.

With a history in motorsports sponsorship dating back to the mid-80s and the introduction of its racing-inspired Answer IV and I3 Apparel range in the early 00’s, Reebok – alongside cross-cultural icon Allen Iverson – helped introduce motorsports to the streets at the turn of the century. In fact, Reebok’s vibrant and overbranded I3 Apparel line is often recognized as one of the earliest and most important crossovers between streetwear and sportswear.​ Today, like most team sports, inner city motorsport or “bike life”  is an important subculture in many cities, affording freedom of expression and a sense of community.

​To celebrate this important subculture, Reebok released a photo series that documents riders from Atlanta, a prominent, thriving bike life city. The series [HERE] captures the pure freedom of expression, movement, style and prowess of these individuals and their wider community.

Tailored with a contemporary red and black holiday aesthetic nodding Iverson’s heart and style, the Question Mid “Street Sleigh” [imagery HERE] presents a material execution inspired by ATV’s and dirt bikes known for their high-contrast matte and gloss detailing. ​The Deep Black full-grain leather upper is accented with a patent synthetic toe and a Rich Red randing (mock welt) overlay that flows onto a glossed midsole for a truly eye-catching design. The silhouette effectively underlines the intersection of bike life and basketball in the inner city – two important and often overlapping subcultures in which Reebok remains rooted. Available in adult ($140, G57551), junior (GV7187), preschool (GV7184) and toddler (GV7182) sizing.

Riding alongside Question Mid is the new Classic Leather Legacy [imagery HERE] that puts its own twist on the “Street Sleigh” narrative. With a Rich Red leather upper seated atop a Deep Black rubber outsole and mixing glossy and matte overlays throughout, the Classic Leather Legacy “Street Sleigh” presents a clean and thoughtful symbol of bike life and Reebok heritage. Available in adult ($80, GZ2752) sizing. 

“Street Sleigh” will also usher in the introductory release of Reebok’s new “Iverson Apparel” range, showcasing historic images captured by longtime A.I. photographer Gary Land, among other graphic designs. Apparel imagery can be found HERE.

Reebok’s “Street Sleigh” footwear and apparel pack is available December 15, 2020 from Reebok.com, Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line, among other local retailers. Fans can stay tuned for more from “I3 Motorsports” in Spring 2021.

REEBOK LAUNCH PARTY

REEBOK CELEBRATES LAUNCH OF NEW FAST FLEXWEAVE RUNNING SHOE AT NYC EVENT

Rae Sremmurd, Devonta Freeman, Luis Badillo Jr., and Harley Pasternak Put Innovative Flexweave™ Technology to the Test

On March 5th, global fitness lifestyle brand Reebok brought together some of the best in fitness and entertainment to launch the brand’s newest innovation in footwear—the Fast Flexweave running shoe.

An exclusive group of fitness media and influencers put Fast Flexweave to the test in a rigorous, specially-curated workout inspired and led in-person by Reebok partners including Atlanta Falcons Running Back Devonta Freeman, speed specialist Luis Badillo Jr., Reebok Global Trainer Harley Pasternak. To demonstrate the durability of the Fast Flexweave shoe, Reebok trainers designed custom agility workouts that integrated short bursts of speed, quick-power movements and intensive stability training.

Following the workout, Reebok ambassadors Rae Sremmurd took the stage, closing the night with an explosive live performance. Swae and Slim kept the energy flowing by kicking off their set with “No Flex Zone”, before moving on to perform some of their other hits, including “Black Beetles,” “Perplexing Pegasus,” “Swang,” and performing Swae Lee’s newest release, “Power Glide” for the first time.

The Reebok Fast Flexweave is a dynamic running shoe built with Flexweave – a revolutionary technology that boasts the coveted balance of lightness, durability, fit and stability. Flexweave material will appear in performance and Reebok Classics products throughout 2018 and beyond. Last night, Slim, Swae, and Devonta showed off the next Flexweave release, Fusion Flexweave, which will be available on April 1.

Flexweave is the latest offering from the Reebok Innovation Collective – a dedicated unit within Reebok comprised of product experts and key brand collaborators focused on the pursuit of progression via innovation and partnerships. Through the Reebok Innovation Collective, Reebok continues to develop footwear and apparel of the next generation, highlighting unprecedented technical performance and expression.
