The general public’s love of mules and slip-on styles seems to show no signs of slowing down as we head into the second half of 2021, and Reebok‘s Beatnik is ready to keep riding the wave with a new “Quilted Canvas” pack. Inspired by the warmth and comfort of ’90s-style quilted parka jackets, the “Quilted Canvas” pack offers textured detailing and three bold color schemes: “Vintage Blue,” “Fall Orange” and “Flannel Grey.”

Most Beatniks — like the recently-released “Natural Dye” collection — offer a trim upper with a single bold seam running down the center of the foot. However, the “Quilted Canvas” pack adds puffer-like horizontal stitching to bring a little extra texture into the design. All three colorways offer a tonal forefoot build, accented by black midfoot and heel straps, exposed heels, bone-colored midsoles and jagged brown outsoles.

The Reebok Beatnik “Quilted Canvas” pack retails for $120 USD per pair and is available now at the Reebok webstore as well as retailers like Bodega. It’ll hit international stockists on August 1.

Looking to learn more about the unique history of the Beatnik? Check out HYPEBEAST’s 2020 interview with Reebok senior global product marketing manager Leo Gamboa and designer/upcycler Nicole McLaughlin, both of whom explained the sui generis silhouette’s singular appeal.
