Opening Ceremony may have shut its physical doors for good earlier this year, but it’s continuing along unimpeded on the collaborative front by working with Reebok to craft two plaid-patterned takes on the Instapump Fury. Arriving in a Blackwatch-style mix of dark green and navy plus a bright black and yellow, both styles mix materials, prints and embellishments to bold and vivid effect, making for a look that’s not dissimilar to OC’s popular plaid bags and accessories.
Although the colors of the plaids are decidedly divergent, they’re presented in a similar fashion. The Instapump Fury’s cut-out upper is split into two main pieces: the base, which is constructed of textiles, and the midfoot cage, made of a glossy patent leather-like material. This contrast in gloss is played up further by the application of the plaid patterns — pink, red or white lines are straight on the base and askew on the midfoot cage.
Both pairs use a black heel piece and toe bumper, with “Opening Ceremony EST. 2002” debossed in white on the rear. Pump fit systems are kept entirely matte black on the tongue. Finally, two-piece white foam midsoles are separated by a carbon fiber plate, and pack DMX technology into the heel to offer exemplary comfort.
The Opening Ceremony x Reebok Instapump Fury collection will release on the Reebok webstore July 1. Each pair is priced at $170 USD.
