We Like: Reebok Classic announces Golden Barbie as its newest face for Lady Foot Locker campaign

Reebok officially welcomes international supermodel, actress and fitness maven Jasmine Sanders as one of its newest faces for the Reebok brand, joining the likes of Gigi Hadid, Teyana Taylor and Future. Adored by her millions of social media followers, Sanders will serve as the face of Reebok’s Women’s Classic campaign and collection with Lady Foot Locker.

Known widely for her bold and effortless merger of fitness and fashion, Sanders quickly gained international notoriety as a style icon – having walked countless catwalks around the world for top designers and striking poses for the most legendary fashion photographers. A self-proclaimed fitness maven, Sanders credits her success to hard work, both in her career and the in the gym. Sanders discovered early in her career that fitness was the key to balance and tranquility in an industry where the pressures of beauty could be overwhelming.

In the new Reebok Classic campaign, launching nationwide in key Lady Foot Locker stores, as well as on Reebok.com, Jasmine Sanders was photographed at the sun-dappled Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, which served as the perfect backdrop to this streetwear collection. Blending key performance and street sensibilities, the collection includes directional designs that cater to the modern fashionista. Standout styles include the coordinating red/white/blue Striped Crew and the long Striped Skirt, paired with the Aztec Garment and Gum sneaker in white with gumsole, as well as Iconic Crew Sweat and matching Fitness Leggings paired with the Classic Leather sneaker in white. The 26 piece collection is rounded out by additional key pieces including the cropped Rib Tank Top, various Tees, a Knit Track Short, and various styles of the Aztec sneaker in black, white, red and clue, along with Classic Leather sneakers in white, black and neutral colorways.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Reebok and its unique take on street style and fitness, so when I was asked to become the latest member of the Reebok family, the answer was simple,” said Sanders. “I love how versatile this Reebok collection is and allows me to go from the street to the gym and back, which works so well for my busy schedule. This collection really shows women and young girls that you can be fit and fabulous – and that message is very important to me as I live it every day.”

“We’re very excited to have Jasmine Sanders join the Reebok Classic family because she has a unique sense of style that crosses over from fashion to fitness and beyond,” said Todd Krinsky, Global Vice President of Reebok Classic and Entertainment. “Not many people have the credibility to do this. We think that Jasmine is a bold voice for her generation and we’re very excited to share what’s in store for Reebok Classic and Jasmine in the future.”

The Jasmine Sanders campaign for Reebok and Lady Foot Locker launches nationwide in-store and online today. Please visit http://www.ladyfootlocker.com or http://www.reebok.com/us/jasmine_sanders for additional information.

Reebok to launch the Reebok Classic ZOKU RUNNER x Freebandz

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

Back To Back: Future Moves Closer To Making Billboard Chart History

Future

Future is on cloud 9 this week! The ATL rapper has reached No. 1 on the Billboard album chart for a fourth time this week. Next week, he may make chart history with a fifth album.

According to The New York Times:

Future’s self-titled Epic Records released album (Feb. 17), went directly to No. 1 with 109 million streams and 60,000 sales in its first week, per data from Nielsen. In the new “multi-metric consumption” formula used by Nielsen and Billboard to gather the various ways that listeners now access music, “Future” had the equivalent of 140,000 full album sales. It is his fourth time at number 1 spot, after DS2, Evol and What a Time to Be Alive, the dope collaboration effort with Drake.

In even bigger news, next week may be even greater for Future Hendrix. His second surprise new album this year, HNDRXX, was released on this past Friday, and according to early data collected by BuzzAngle — a Nielsen competitor that publishes daily sales updates — it has the advantage to be numero uno next week. If that happens, Future would be the first artist in the six-decade history of the Billboard 200 to have two new albums make their debuts at #1 on successive charts. John Mayer‘s release would be the only competition that could block him from the top spot.

Either way, it goes, a congrats is in order to Future for providing great content Back-to-Back!

Fly Stream: Future Releases ‘HNDRXX’ feat. Rihanna & The Weeknd

future-hndrxx

As Future promised, he releases more music from his body of archives and drops a new project entitled HNDRXX. This comes just one week exactly after dropping his self-titled album.

The anthem-driven body of work includes features from The Weeknd (“Comin Out Strong”), Rihanna (“Selfish”), and more. With songs catered to the ladies paired with a more honest side, Future Hendrix takes a more radio-friendly approach allowing you to listen to the album all the way through; not skipping any songs. Standout tracks like “Damage” contains a sample from Guy‘s classic jawn “Piece Of My Love”, and “Neva Missa Lost” takes you back to the smooth sounds of Jodeci‘s “My Heart Belongs To You.” Overall, Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn has delivered his best work to date. Yes, we had to say his full name. It’s just that good. Truly LIT.

Kudos Future!
