Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi have announced their first ever collaboration, bringing Maharishi’s military design ethos to Reebok’s heritage-inspired Classic Leather Legacy AZ.
Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and focus on deploying products that are practical, long-lasting, and offer an unforgettable presence. For their first collaboration with fellow UK brand Reebok, Maharishi have applied this approach uniquely to the Reebok Classic Leather Legacy AZ, a modern interpretation of Reebok’s timeless Classic Leather running shoe inspired by the archival Aztec II and adapted with contemporary shaping and material application.
“The Classic Leather Legacy AZ looks futurist and modern whilst retaining what makes it an iconic shoe,” commented Maharishi. “A big part of our design ethos is exploring duality, so this shoe – being a design classic infused with ultra-modern sensibility – fits well.”
The sneaker draws inspiration from United States military flight suits and uniforms, featuring a nylon construction based on historic military jackets, contrasting black ripstop panels in reference to the olive/black patch insignia used on traditional camouflage uniforms, and 3M reflective highlights for added visibility seated atop the iconic Reebok gum sole.
Look for the Maharshi x Reebok Classic Leather Legacy AZ to release exclusively on MaharishiStore.com beginning June 10 before launching globally June 17 via Reebok.com and select retailers. The retail price is set at $150.
