Reebok‘s popular Instapump Fury has received a colorful rework at the hands of Japanese artist Takuya Kamioka. Known for his vibrant illustrations and paintings, Kamioka painted a full-size Instapump Fury “Citron” on the wall of Reebok’s Tokyo “’90s House” — a celebration of the Steven Smith-designed silhouette’s 25th anniversary in 2019 — and this collaborative colorway commemorates that process.
Dressed in stark black and vivid neon yellow, Kamioka’s Instapump Fury is inspired by his aforementioned painting. Its “work in progress” look discards the familiar red accents on the OG “Citron” in favor of a simple two-tone style, a clever nod to a painting that’s not yet completed. Black is used on the mesh base and Pump buttons while neon yellow appears on the full air bladder, sockliner and toebox.
Kamioka’s signature graces the lateral heel, with tonal Vector logos on the throat and very back completing the branded accents. Down below, split black midsoles are held together with a tonal carbon fiber shank and add DMX cushioning in the heel to complete the look.
The Takuya Kamioka x Reebok Instapump Fury will launch May 15, but is available for pre-order at atmos now. The MSRP is set at ¥18,000 JPY (approximately $169 USD).
