After recently collaborating with the hiking experts of ROA, Brain Dead is strengthening its collaborative game by revisiting Reebok. The duo have quite a few popular results such as the Pump Court, Beatnik and the Classic Leather, but the forthcoming project is based upon a more modern day silhouette, Zig Kinetica II.
The collaboration comprises of 2 fresh colorways of grey and black, both of which carry the theme of UFO sensibility taking inspiration from Japanese Sofubi Kaiju toys. The lighter toned features a grey upper accented with swirly mid-foot patterns in matte gold, perfectly contrasting with grey. Minute hints of lilac make their way onto the lace toggles and border of the throat complementing the orange stripes on the lace loops. The shoe is concluded with double stacked midsoles alternating between orange tie-dye patterns on the upper part and teal graphics on the bottom section.
The alternate shifts towards the darker tone with the mesh base arriving in stark black. Prints of pastel green apply themselves on the mid-foot followed while a foam yellow tongue and lilac stripes on the shoe string loops complete the upper. Moving downwards, the midsoles color-block connecting the translucent layer and a black speckled outsole.
The collection is due to release on the 13th of April via Brain Dead and Dover Street Market.
