Reebok Classic will launch the latest evolution of the ZOKU RUNNER through the launch of the Reebok Classic ZOKU RUNNER x Freebandz, representing the first collaboration for this new sneaker style.
Reebok Classic’s new contemporary silhouette, the ZOKU RUNNER first debuted on March 2 in London with a performance from Future at the famed Village Underground. The sneaker features the brand new ULTRAKNIT technology from Reebok, a method of knitting fused yarn to create a flexible and breathable sock-like upper that retains its shape while reducing material waste. The runner also features DMX Foam technology, a cushioning compound that dramatically reduces weight where it matters.
The Reebok Classic ZOKU RUNNER x Freebandz sneaker was designed with help from Future and the team on his Freebandz label. The sneaker features a two-tone black & white ULTRAKNIT upper with matching laces, reflective heel cage overlays embossed with ‘Reebok’ on the left shoe and ‘Freebandz’ on the right one, and a black & white marbled outsole with a glossy white midsole. Completing the design are Freebandz branding details on the sockliner, heel webbing, and collar.
Speaking to his natural synergies with Reebok Classic’s latest design, Future commented: “The ZOKU RUNNER is about evolution, moving forwards…that’s what I look to do creatively.”
The sneaker retails for $115 USD / 129€, available at www.reebok.com/us/zoku_runner and select retailers worldwide on Friday, March 17th.
