Capping off the big weekend in the Big Easy in style, Reebok and Footaction hosted Classics in the Courtyard, a pop-up sneaker customization store and concert on Saturday afternoon right in the heart of Bourbon Street featuring Reebok brand ambassadors Cam’ron, Teyana Taylor, and Curren$y. The three artists took turns performing some of their biggest hits in front of a packed house of fans while wearing iconic Reebok styles like the Club C, Freestyle, and Instapump Fury.

Cam and Teyana have a long history with Reebok, with both artists previously collaborating with Reebok on their own shoes. Today, they were supporting the most iconic Reebok styles, with Cam’ron wearing the Club C, and Teyana rocking bright red Freestyle Hi – a style that Teyana was recently named the face of for 2017 . Matching his seersucker outfit, Curren$y wore a recent local collaboration with Sneaker Politics, the Reebok Instapump Fury OG Seersucker Thursday.

Bringing some Harlem flavor to NOLA, Cam’ron performed some of his biggest hits, including classics “Oh Boy” and “Hey Ma,” while Teyana played and danced on the balcony to some of her biggest hits, including “Maybe”.

Reebok Classic x Footaction “Classics in the Courtyard” was accompanied by a Footaction pop-up store right on Bourbon Street, where fans could purchase a variety of Reebok styles and also customize their own artwork on the silhouettes.

The Reebok Classic Club C is available at Reebok.com and Footaction for $69.99, and the Reebok Freestyle Hi is available at Reebok.com for $69.99.

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.

bs7465_heel

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.

Hall of Fame x Reebok Question Mid launching Friday, November 11th

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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.

The Hall of Fame x Reebok Question Mid launches at Hall of Fame’s LA store and on HallofFameLTD.com this week, and on Reebok.com and select Reebok Classic retailers this Friday, November 11th.
