Palace, British master of skateboarding irreverence, has teamed with Reebok once again for a fresh footwear collaboration: the Classic Leather Pump. Combining the seminal Classic Leather with a Pump fit system for the first time, the Classic Leather Pump is a cheeky-yet-sensible style that’s set to be accompanied by special co-branded sweatsuits.
Arriving in both white/navy and black/white colorways, each pair serves up a smooth, single-color leather upper with contrasting Vector stripes. The Pump fit system’s “controls” are on the lateral quarter: a larger button with a Tri-Ferg graphic to inflate, a smaller button with a Union Jack hit to deflate. Co-branded details grace each tongue tag, Reebok spellout hits appear on the heel and single-color EVA foam midsoles/rubber outsoles finalize each look. “For years, they told us it was impossible,” said Palace in a press release “But we didn’t listen. Because at Palace, we had a vision: the Reebok Classic, with a Pump on it.”
Accompanying the duo of sneakers are three crewnecks, three sweatpants and three t-shirts — the inaugural apparel collaboration from Palace and Reebok. Available in white, black or light gray, each top features a special Palace x Reebok graphic that’s embroidered on the crewneck or printed on the T-shirt. Both also add a Union Jack on the left sleeve, and the crewneck offers red and blue piping below the shoulders to correspond with the sweatpants. The pants themselves complete the set with a small logo on the left leg and piping running from waist to ankle.
The Palace x Reebok Classic Leather Pump and its matching apparel will release on the Palace webstore and at the brand’s retail locations in Europe and the US on October 23, then hit Japan and China on October 24. Retail prices have yet to be announced.
