After debuting via a KANGHYUK collaboration in July and then releasing in four in-line colorways during August, Reebok‘s new Premier Road Modern is set to hit shelves in a two-shoe “Rust” pack. A duo of fall-ready styles, the colorful “Rust” pack draws its inspiration from the oxidation of metals and colors during the chemical breakdown process.
Arriving in “Burgundy/Dark Yellow/Bottle Green” and “Dust/Grey Green/Neon Blue/Black,” both pairs feature a flowing, one-piece molded upper with cut-out mono mesh inserts on both the lateral and medial quarters. Tongues feature the same foam construction as the uppers for a technical contrast, while each Vector logo is presented in a conceptual, layered style that’s undeniably eye-catching. Down below, EVA foam midsoles bolstered by a midfoot shank round off the look.
If parts of the shoe look somewhat familiar to other models like the DMX Trail Shadow or Vetements x Reebok Spike Runner, that’s because they are. The Premier Road Modern is a continuation of Reebok’s Premier Running collection — a high performance line whose genesis can be traced back to 2005 — and combines elements from over 15 archival models.
