Comic aficionados are often split between DC Comics and Marvel, however, the latter of the two has seen much greater success on the silver screen and in terms of cultural relevancy in recent times. While Marvel has also found its way into the sneaker world through collaborations with BAPE and adidas, DC Comics has worked with Converse, Puma, and Reebok to bring some of their iconic characters to life. Now continuing their partnership, DC Comics and Reebok have crafted a Reebok Workout Plus that cues from Lex Luthor and his Kryptonite suit.
Coming in a mixture of greys, purples, and greens, the sneaker comes with jagged, distressed edges and a combination of suede and leather across its upper. On the base layer sits a dark grey suede while the leather overlays around the mudguard, eyestays, and midfoot come in a lighter hue. The panels throughout the midfoot also get jagged edges and obscure what normally would be “Reebok” text near the window while we also get our first colorful hit thanks to the purple plastic eyestays. While the laces and tongue nearby stick to a dark tone, the tongue tag’s Kryptonite graphic in green and the purple lining provide the last colorful hit on the upper while further nods to DC Comics come via the heel tab and on the insole. Underfoot, a glow-in-the-dark midsole and outsole combo complete the look.
The DC x Reebok Workout Plus Lex Luthor is set to release on December 2nd, 2022 through Reebok and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $100.
