Building on its ethos of reimagining heritage design, Eastlogue has come together with Reebok for its very first footwear collaboration. For the team-up, the South Korean label dressed the DMX Trail Shadow in a military-inspired look defined by the intersection of utility and style.
Drawing from vintage military garments, the upper of the shoe is constructed of technical mesh done in olive drab accented by heat welding and high-vis 3M/orange webbing. The base is also accompanied by synthetic black overlays at the toe and the heel, black rope laces, matching olive TPU cage, orange lining and technical mesh panel at the tongue. 3D Reebok and Eastlogue markings on the tongue, CrossFit Delta logos at the midfoot and printed insoles serve as branding elements. Elevating the shoe is a black DMX Shear air-transfer technology midsole unit paired with a rugged lugged rubber outsole with contrasting orange hits.
Catch a statement about the collaboration from Eastlogue founder and designer Dongki Lee below.
“We are thrilled to partner with Reebok to release our very first sneaker. Our ethos is taking something vintage and remaking it with modern materials, and with the DMX Trail Shadow, we were able to do just that, perfectly balancing our functional sensibility with Reebok’s classic design.”
Priced at $180 USD, the Eastlogue x Reebok DMX Trail Shadow is set to release on Reebok and Eastlogue’s websites March 20. Eastlogue will also be holding a one-week outdoor-themed pop-up release at Extra Butter New York.
