Following her first major EP debut on Warner Music earlier this year, Saweetie, along with Bodega Bamz, Lil Baby, Made in TYO and JayIDK, has partnered with Reebok to launch the Alter the Icons collection – which puts a new and refreshing spin on classic Reebok silhouettes like the Classic Leather and Workout Plus.

In Fashion: Jay Versace, Frankie Collective, and More! Reebok Launches 90s Inspired Campaign + Capsule Collection Giveaway

In 1993, Reebok launched the Aztrek: an off-road runner that perfectly represented the wildly original and experimental designs of the time. Relaunched 25 years later, the Aztrek’s super-futuristic layers and chunky design embrace the heart of 1990s sneaker style. To celebrate the Aztrek’s return and honor the spirit of the ‘90s-era style it embodies, Reebok has launched a campaign featuring six ‘90s-raised tastemakers for a content series titled “Aztrek: 90s Re-Run.”

Featuring the likes of social media sensation Jay Versace, vintage streetwear re-worker Sara Gourlay of Frankie Collective, cult vintage shop owner Kirk Tilton of For All to Envy and more, the campaign was shot on a variety of mediums that champion the Aztrek’s past and celebrate it within the context of contemporary culture and style.

Each partner was shot in rare vintage ‘90s Reebok gear that they personally curated or custom created – resulting in five unique “one-of-one” capsule collections, all of which will be available for anyone to enter to win on Reebok.com starting today. Sourced from their own personal wardrobes, along with hours of vintage shopping, each collection nods to the singular style of the 1990s, as well as the Aztrek’s distinctive design elements and colorways.

Shot on film as an homage to ‘90s visual culture, the campaign imagery and videos span five truly epic off-road locations, illustrating the sneaker’s evolution from an off-path performance shoe to symbol for ‘90s-inspired style. From the pristine beauty of upstate New York’s national parks, to the enigmatic Joshua Tree and Death Valley desert landscapes and Utah’s breathtaking slot canyons, the campaign showcases the Aztrek’s new Fall/Winter colorways against unique off-road environments and vibrant landscapes.

Check out the visual campaign above.

Alongside the relaunched Aztrek, all individual partner capsule collections will be available to win via a giveaway on Reebok.com – a platform for individuals to recreate their own ‘90s-inspired style. To enter to win, the rules are:

  1. Be a U.S. resident
  2. Sign up to win at https://www.reebok.com/us/90s_rerun
  3. Wait for an e-mail from Reebok – they’ll select six winners at random and let entrants know if they’ve won.

In Fashion: Reebok x Bronze 56k – Club C 85 [Dropping 10/5]

Founded in 2012 by Peter Sidlauskas and Patrick Murray, Bronze 56k is a post-modern success story. As their lo-fi videos brought notoriety and internet fame to the skate crew from Queens, New York, the subversive nature of their telegenic presence added to a genuine sense of corporate intrigue. Today, Bronze 56k is best known for their unique blend of branded hardware and irreverent wardrobe staples.

First released in 1985, the Club C started life as a pro-level tennis trainer before eventually reaching ‘living legend’ status within the Reebok stable.

Emphasizing the Club C’s sports heritage vibes, the foundation of Bronze 56k’s design is the use of premium white leather. Terry cloth is another period-correct tennis touch, with the navy- toned fabric wrapping the ankles for luxurious comfort and enhanced sweat protection. Oversized tongue patches are a nod to Bronze 56k’s 90s-inspired tech aesthetic, while the Reebok ‘Union Jack’ logo looks right at home splashed across the Club C’s flanks. Custom drawstring bags are an added bonus.

The Bronze 56k x Reebok Club C will be available for $120 at www.reebok.comwww.bronze56k.com, and select retailers globally.
