Reebok and Japanese clothing brand South2 West8 have teamed up for their first ever footwear collaboration. Dropping later on this month, here is an official look at the South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge.
The South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge utilizes technical elements and aesthetics that explore the traditional Japanese fly-fishing method, “Tenkara.”
“We were inspired by a visual of an outdoor field colliding with an urban city and the idea of linking the two,” commented South2 West8’s brand director. “SOUTH2 WEST8 holds little interest in designs that are overly sophisticated or high-tech, in favor of those that are athletically functional. In this respect, the Zig design aptly maintains its functionality, while possessing decorative and assertive elements with great visual volume and presence. These characteristics make it a perfect match for SOUTH2 WEST8 wear.”
Details on the South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge include a textile camouflage upper embellished by Lush Green suede overlays, a spiky rubber toe cap, Green laces, and a Green heel loop completing the military-inspired look. At the bottom, a Black and Grey midsole encapsulates responsive Floatride Fuel cushioning above an anti-slip 30% pre-consumer recycled Vibram Ecostep lugged outsole.
Retailing for $170, the South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge is set to release on November 5th exclusively at South2 West8 stores in Japan receiving a wider release on November 18th at select retailers and Reebok.com.
