Beijing’s DEAL continues its Chinese culture-themed colorways with Reebok, this time with a “Feng Shui Compass” version of the Instapump Fury. Similar to its previous “Tai-Chi” colorway, this new release sees a monochromatic color scheme, but instead of color blocked panels, the uppers are treated with a print of a feng shui compass (lou pan).
Used to locate certain energies for a harmonic balance in life, the compass depicts a series of rings with varying attributes/elements. In keeping with that idea of blance, or yin-and-yang, each pair sees alternating black and white — the 40 concentric rings of the compass can be seen with white lines on the right foot, and with black lines on the left side. This balance of black and white continues on to the Instapump’s yin-and-yang symbol, the contrast embroidery at the toes, tongue and heel pull, insole, and on the Taoist bagua symbols at the heel — this sneaker is packed with cultural symbolism.
Those interested in these updated Instapump Furys from DEAL, can find them over at the imprint’s physical store in Beijing this coming June.
