St. Patricks Day is usually a good time for shoe companies to produce special edition sneakers to celebrate this occasion and Nike is always the usual suspect. But this year Reebok has created a well designed St. Patrick’s Day BB5600 sneaker that features the colors of white, neon green and orange. The neons on the shoe reinterprets the Irish Flag, the lining and sockliner feature an all-over beer mug pattern and the graphic on the tongue is a leprechaun drinking beer with brass knuckles. The quality looks great and Reebok definitely seems like they are focusing on their casual line this year giving other sneaker companies a challenge in this category.
