Did you cop one of the Reebok Ventilator OG colorways? A couple returned in the latter part of 2013 along with some new styles, that latter group adding a new member here shortly with the pair pictured above. This new Ventilator in Athletic Navy suede and mesh adds a hit of Sea Glass to the bottom eyelet wing, along with select Punch Pink pops throughout. It’s an easy look to wear that also has some of that springy energy that will make them feel so vital when you get the pair you pre-ordered that’s scheduled to ship next Thursday from Overkill.
While Reebok already brought the Ventilator back to life in 2013, they’re back, and they’ve ditched the “OG” colorways for some new blood, coming in the form of this “Deep Blue Sea” colorway. Leather, suede and mesh adorn these retro runners, which just happen to be drenched in navy blue, sea glass green and pink. If you’re looking for some sea in your life but don’t want to get your feet wet you’re in luck, these will be hitting shelves March 13th.
After ending her contract as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and finalizing her separation from husband/actor Orlando Bloom, supermodel Miranda Kerr is catching second wind in her career recently, appearing not just a spokesperson for H&M but in a rather risqué commercial for Reebok. The scene is set at Kerr’s supposed townhouse home, where she stripes her workout wear before heading to shower. Only then does she realize she’s still wearing Reebok Skyscape Forever sneakers. With a tagline “So comfortable, you forget you have them on.” and provocative hashtag #LIVEWITHFIRE, Reebok’s new commercial leaves much to the viewer’s imagination. See the ad for yourself after the jump below…
Reebok is set revive a favorite ’90s runner from the brand’s extensive archive, conferring a deep blue colorway inspired by ocean waters onto the classic silhouette. The resulting Reebok Ventilator “Deep Blue Sea” features a combination suede and mesh upper dressed with accenting hits of sea foam and coral, the latter complementary hues adding to the appealing marine theme. As always, Reebok’s 5mm Hexalite Technology and an EVA cushioned midsole combine to deliver a comfortable ride. Check out detailed looks below, and expect the Reebok Ventilator in Athletic Navy/Sea Glass to land soon at select Reebok Classic retailers, including Berlin’s Overkill.

Is the Retro release of the first Kamikaze model doing as well as the Kamikaze II of last year? That remains to be seen, but its clear that Reebok is pushing hard with the special edition colorways to go alongside the OG fare. The “Voodoo” edition owns a clear tie to the city of New Orleans, where these spiritual rituals and practices are connected to the region’s interesting history and origins. However, this Reebok Kamikaze 1 did not release during All-Star Weekend (would’ve been a perfect fit). When will these hit US stores? Stay tuned for more and check out the photos in the meantime.
On the heels of last winter’s collaborative Reebok DMX Run, Frank the Butcher has teamed up once again with Reebok Classic, this time producing two new styles of the Reebok Insta Pump Fury. Launching under Frank’s BAU (Business As Usual) imprint, the retro runners feature a tonal splatter design across the blacked out upper, plus complementary hues at the toes and heel in either tan or hot pink. Finishing touches include BAU embroidery and signature lightning bolt imagery on the pumps themselves. Check out detailed looks below, and find the kicks available for purchase now through Hanon.
This coming Saturday, March 1st, the Philadelphia 76ers organization will retire shooting guard Allen Iverson‘s No.3 jersey. An 11-time NBA All-Star, Iverson started his professional career in basketball as the first overall, first round pick by the 76ers during the 1996 NBA Draft. The effects on the team culminate some four years later when Iverson led the 76ers to the 2001 NBA Finals, their first Finals appearance since 1983.
As the banner with Iverson’s name and number hangs high above the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Reebok and its Reebok Classic division will be preparing a special signature footwear for the occasion. Named the Reebok Banner Question, the mid-top design not only denotes Iverson’s very first signature footwear but the red, white and blue color scheme of the 76ers. In layers of perforated leather, nubuck, suede, mesh and Hexalite, only 1996 numbered pairs will be available for purchase on Friday, March 14th.
Garbstore’s second Reebok collection looks to TV sets of old for colorway inspiration. Yes, the trainers included in the group are intended to look like the fuzzy static and colorful test bars that would randomly pop up on your set back in the day (If you’re a sneakerhead that’s too young to appreciate the reference, do a little Googling and get familiar). Amongst the initial run is the Reebok Sole Trainer here, which can be had right now. Continue reading for a better look at the shoes and then grab yours from Size? before they’re gone.
