After reviving its 2001 silhouette Pump Fury Millennium, Reebok has turned to the nostalgic past once again for new inspiration. This time around, the footwear brand has called in the 80-year-old Warner Bros. animation Tom & Jerry for colorful takes on some Reebok classics, coming in both kids and adult sizes — featured are the Club C Revenge, Club C and Instapump Fury.
First up is the Intampump Fury x Tom, covered in delicate gray faux-fur, neoprene, leather and rubber materials. The top of the sneakers come with bright red “Tom and Jerry” branding at the heel and tongue pulls. The silhouette’s signature Pump fit system sees a gray button and neoprene overlays around the body. Thick rubber yellow swatches are placed along the forefoot, followed by a pointy black leather toe cap that resembles Tom’s nose. Other details like a bright green patch at the heel, graphic embroidery below it and subtle “#” motifs at the midsole finish off the vibrant design.
The next sneaker is the Club C Revenge, modeled this time, after Jerry. Accented with bright pink inner collars, the shoe comes with cream-colored uppers in soft suede. The muted palette is contrasted by round furry orange laces and a “Tom and Jerry” rubber patch sewn onto the sidewalls. “#?!” is sewn over the heel counter, while black stitches are placed at the lower mid-section of the body. All of these details sit atop a yellowish vintage-toned midsole, underscored by a thin semi-translucent outsole.
Lastly, the Club C x Tom & Jerry features both the aforementioned characters. Etched over a light ecru-tinged leather base, the shoe boasts an upper emblazoned with thin black caricatures of Tom and Jerry. Starting at the top of the shoe, a woven tab is placed at the tongue, above flat laces and subtle perforations near the toe box. The inner collars come with a delicate fleece lining for added warmth and comfort. Reebok branding is stamped at the sidewalls over an angular geometric panel, while tonal double-stitching appears at the front toe cap. To offset the busy patterns, the midsole has been given a light retro tone, a nod to the cartoon’s nostalgic heritage.
All three sneakers from the Reebok x Tom and Jerry 2019 capsule will be available on February 15 at Reebok’s website, its physical global outposts and select retailers, ranging from $100 – $200 USD.
