Tokyo-based brand BlackEyePatch is known for artfully reinterpreting street-rooted subcultures through its clothing, and it’s now brought that signature aesthetic onto the Reebok Daytona DMX II.

Since BlackEyePatch has frequently looked to the aughts for design inspiration, the period-appropriate look of the Daytona DMX II fits its ethos a T. A black base layer is covered by a thin white mesh, itself then adorned with a bold metallic silver overlay that wraps around the toebox, soars up to make contact with the top eyelet, and swoops back down in cut-out fashion to round off the heel. Special detailing is present as well, thanks to a debossed branded hit on the lateral midfoot and Japanese kanji on the heel.

Bold sport blue is also thrown into the mix, appearing on the eyestays, tabs and jeweled Reebok badge on the tongue. Finishing touches are then provided by a black midsole packed full of DMX cushioning and a milky opaque outsole.

When viewed from certain angles, the shoe’s overall styling and colorblocking offer slight shades of two Nike silhouettes: the Air Max 97 and the Zoom Spiridon. Intentional or otherwise, this is certainly an interesting quirk, as legendary designer Christian Tresser is, in fact, the man responsible for creating all three models.

The BlackEyePatch x Reebok Daytona DMX II is set to release at retailers like Sneakersnstuff on October 18 for $130 USD. Familiarize yourself with its stylings above, and for more from Reebok, check out the Question Double Cross when you’re finished.
