This week, Reebok Classic announces its second collaboration with American hip-hop artist, actor and entrepreneur Cam’ron, with the launch of the Reebok Ventilator Supreme Cam’ron.
The hip-hop artist first teamed up with Reebok Classic earlier this year with his popular take on the Ventilator Supreme which sold out in less than 24 hours. For his latest collaboration with the brand, the resulting sneaker pays tribute to Cam’ron’s signature color, pink, featuring a pink outsole combined with pink camouflage laces and a Dipset logo stamped on the shoe’s heel.
The highly anticipated collaboration drops on Monday, November 28th – transforming our traditional Cyber Monday holiday into Cyber Pink Monday. The Reebok Ventilator Supreme Cam’ron will be available on Reebok.com starting at $159.99.
Twenty years in the game is a big achievement for anybody. So when Sneakersnstuff was invited to commemorate 20 years of the iconic Reebok Question Mid, one of basketball’s most important sneaker silhouettes and Allen Iverson’s first signature shoe, the designers looked to the tradition of gifting luxury items to MVPs, high achievers and people who have given their all to a cause.
Applying an ostrich-inspired premium leather to the upper, as well as an ice outsole and SNS branding on heels and footbeds, the Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Question Mid “Lux” is a sneaker made for the very best and without a doubt a sneaker Mr. Iverson would be proud of.
The Sneakersnstuff x Reebok Question Mid “Lux” drops for $174.99 at Reebok.com, as well as all Sneakersnstuff locations and online on Friday, November 18th.
As clothing designers rolled into a large room, competing for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award — full of prestigious fashion judges, including Vogue‘s own Anna Wintour, rapper Desiigner walks into the room as the muse of clothing line STAMPD. Just to add, the finalists work with Intel to create futuristic fashion pieces that interface with phones and the internet. The talented Brooklyn artist just happen to be wearing one of those special pieces as it was presented to the committee.
Excited as he can be, you could tell that Desiigner was not only happy to be in the building, he was more ecstatic to see “Ms. Wintour,” as he called her. Once the viewing was over, he was asked to spit a verse and the “Panda” artist had no problem turning right around to do just that.
Check it out above as Desiigner lends his vocals to the room with “Timmy Turner.”

Following the success of this summer’s red & blue capsule, Reebok Classic and Kendrick Lamar drop the final installment in the inspirational ‘Red and Blue’ collection.
After dominating this year’s music award show season and dropping his third major label studio album to critical acclaim, Kendrick returns with the Classic Leather Lux. A timeless yet distinctive design, the sneaker is executed in olive green premium leather, representing the Compton saying that “mixing Red and Blue makes Green’; when we come together united we can inspire and encourage growth. The eye-catching green combined with embossed accents of red and blue text on the heel tabs, to symbolize the existing divide between gangs and to emphasize Kendrick’s message of a call for neutrality. A retro gum sole provides an interesting contrast to the muted green upper, and the starcrest tongue branding completes the look in Classic style.
Speaking to the collaboration, Kendrick Lamar said:
“Similar to my collaborations with Reebok in the past, I want to create products that provide fans with larger meanings and messages – particularly ones that inspire unity and growth within communities and youth. In Compton, we have a saying that ‘mixing Red and Blue makes Green.’ While ‘green’ is usually thought of in a monetary respect here, this shoe represents a new definition of ‘green’ – community growth. If we work together, we can break down barriers and prosper.”
Available in unisex and kid’s sizes, the Reebok Classic x Kendrick Lamar Classic Leather Lux is available at Reebok.com and limited global retailers on Black Friday, November 25th 2016.
This weekend at the first-ever ComplexCon, Mountain Dew and VFILES welcomed guests to experience The Camo Collective – an immersive, collaborative art, fashion and tech experience channeling all things camouflage and promising to challenge conventions of the popular print. In addition to debuting an original, interactive augmented reality experience and curated gallery installation, the brand’s new camouflage-meets-wearable-tech collection, Camo Out, created in partnership with youth-culture powerhouse VFILES, was available for sale for the first time to consumers.
Both DEW and camouflage hold unique positions at the cross-section between the new American Heartland and urban street-wear culture: symbolic of freedom and exploration in both rural and urban environments, it exemplifies the lifestyle of having a “damn good time” and self-expression that DEW embodies.
The art and artifacts in The Camo Collective were curated by Jules Gayton, a senior designer at Herschel Supply Company who has also worked on brands like Stussy, Supreme. Jules invited various artists that are inspiring culture today, including Stash, a legendary graffiti artist and designer, and emerging artists Damien Gilley and Michael Walczyck, to demonstrate the evolution of camouflage through art from its original function for concealment to a tool used by creatives to express their individualized style. Record producer and DJ Nosaj Thing used music to tell the story of camo through custom mixes he produced specifically for The Camo Collective experience.
The exhibit also featured ‘the future of camo section that included a cloaking device and a first-of-its-kind interactive augmented reality ‘CamoFlector’ that used mirrors equipped with hologram-augmented reality technology – guests were virtually outfitted by the custom Camo Out patterns and immersed into a virtual music video of the future.
Following the CamoFlector, guests were led into Mountain Dew/VFILES pop-up shop featuring their original camouflage-meets-wearable-tech collection, Camo Out – equipped with Solar Panel Backpacks, Earbud Tracksuits, Snap-Cam Tech Caps and a Bluetooth-enabled Parkas.
Hip-hop group Migos stopped by The Camo Collective exhibit to check out pieces of Camo Outbefore their headlining performance.
Wiz Khalifa continues to show off his fashion prowess.
Following the launch of his BASH clothing line on Oct. 15, Khalifa’s been unveiled as the face of Rag & Bone’s new Men’s Project campaign.
Wiz is featured alongside Mark Hamill, John Turturro, and Mikhail Baryshnikov. When speaking to Billboard co-CEO Marcus Wainwright shared this regarding the “Black and Yellow” artist’s selection.
“We were trying to find people who had forged their own path, and had a very strong sense of their own personal style and that’s certainly true of him. It was also a natural extension of the relationship we had with him, after doing some clothes for his tour and dressing him for the Met Ball. He was all over the press for that; he was wearing a white tuxedo we made, and he owned it. It really highlighted how good something classic and well-made can make anyone look.”
Wiz also appears in a 30-second clip for the label’s Men’s Project; shot in a bowling alley on black and white Super 8 film, which you can check out below along with all campaign videos.
Hall of Fame is the next brand to collaborate with Reebok to help celebrate the Year of the Question, with their very own 20th anniversary edition of the legendary Allen Iverson signature shoe. Like many of the other collaborators throughout the Question’s big year, the Los Angeles-based sportswear label looks to an important piece of Iverson’s history and style on and off the court for inspiration for their colorway. In this case, Hall of Fame highlights one of AI’s most iconic style statements: his cornrows.
The shoe is constructed in a premium black nubuck upper with woven paneling referencing his braids, all in a deconstructed design with the usual padding removed to create a sleeker, lifestyle-minded silhouette. Further refinements to the Question by Hall of Fame include leather utilized for the lace gillies, inner lining, and sockliner, along with embossed leather branding throughout. Every pair will also come with multiple lace options in Philly’s alternate uniform colors.
