Before their respective drug-related suspensions in 1995 and subsequent downfalls, Doc Gooden and Darryl Strawberry were two of the brightest young stars in baseball, helping the Mets secure the 1986 World Series — the franchise’s second and most recent championship. As a nod to their heyday and the 20th anniversary of that championship, Renarts and Reebok have come together for a special “Dead End Kids” edition of the LX 8500. Taking its name from Gooden and Strawberry’s 1995 Sports Illustrated cover story, the “Dead End Kids” kicks combine premium suede and luxurious leather as a bright blue toe segues into deep black to reveal the darkness behind the façade of “The Bad Guys” of ‘86. Closer inspection reveals additional Mets-inspired orange accents while reflective blue 3M piping is a nod to the lights of Shea Stadium.

Coinciding with a collection of apparel that includes custom tees in collaboration with Bluu Dreams and two special edition Mitchell & Ness hoodies, the “Dead End Kids” edition of the LX 8500 drops in-store on October 18 at 7 p.m. ET before hitting renarts.com at 11 a.m. ET on October 22.
