Eames continues its collaborative partnership with Reebok through fiberglass-inspired sneakers.
Founded back in the 1940s by Charles and Ray Eames, their brand Eames Office has stayed a family business to this day while still providing brand new innovative designs in the architectural and furniture space. Earlier in the year, the company linked up with Reebok on a collaborative collection (twice) that immortalized some of their most iconic designs in sneaker form. Now the dynamic duo is back again for another collection featuring the Reebok Classic Leather, taking inspiration from Eames’ Molded Fiberglass Chair.
Coming in three distinct colorways, you’ll have a choice between Parchment, Seafoam Green, and a Pink Reebok Classic Leather that draws its inspiration from the furniture pieces' original color offerings way back in the mid-20th century. The leather upper has been painstakingly patterned to mimic the actual texture of the Eames Molded Fiberglass through its rough, scratched appearance while co-branded details can be found throughout. These logos appear where you’d typically find “Reebok” text along the midfoot while the tongue gets both labels' logos combined. Tonal laces keep the sneakers in the monochromatic realm while the insole comes with a 16mm print from Eames’ archive, featuring a photo from the 1960 film “Kaleidoscope Jazz Chair.” Eames adds even more premium details with the inclusion of a collective keychain of an Eames DAX that will continue the monochrome color palette for each respective pair. Rounding out the design is the two-tone white foam midsole paired with a grey rubber outsole.
The Eames Office x Reebok Classic Leather Fiberglass Pack is set to release on November 17th, 2022 through eamesoffice.com while a wider release through Reebok and select retailers will go down on November 19th. Releasing in unisex sizing, the retail price is set at $120.
