Released early this year, the Reebok Classics x Keith Haring Foundation collection is no news anymore, but the fact remains.
And the Freestyle High, already being my favourite Reebok Classics model ever, feels even more special under the Keith Haring treament.
Like Pete Williams said back in January, over at High Snobiety:
The use of bold primary colours and a range of textures gives the range a graphic feel and a nod to the early 80’s, which was the time that both Haring and Reebok Classic came to prominence - some of Reebok Classics' most loved silhouettes were first introduced around the same time as some of Haring’s most acclaimed work, which gives a nice link between the artists and the brand.
The embroidered number 83 just adds some extra sentimental value for me. It was a good year, if you know what I mean.
So thanks Reebok, getting these trully means something more for me than just getting a really, really, really cool pair of sneakers.
Above, you see my Freestyle High dilemma in the making. Flipping a coin will work for now, or at least until I get a third pair.
