KANGHYUK and Reebok have teamed up for a special take on the Classic Leather, one that’s constructed entirely of recycled airbags and industrial polyamide. Made in partnership with Dover Street Market London, the shoes are limited to a scant 25 pairs and are equal parts art project, sustainability experiment and unparalleled take on a famed silhouette.

The KANGHYUK x Reebok Classic Leather’s ultra-thin upper is dressed entirely in red, and held together by a cacophony of tonal seams plus stacked pieces. Though it’s devoid of its standard Reebok text hits, there are plenty of other Classic Leather signifiers like the Vector logo on the quarter panel, an unadorned midfoot window and a wide toebox with two lines of perforations. Collars are held together by a thick line of stitching, and a jersey-like mesh material lines the inside. Down below, red EVA foam midsoles work with red rubber outsoles to round off the look.

This sustainability-first extra materials project isn’t the first effort between KANGHYUK, Reebok and Dover Street Market‘s London branch. 2020 saw a 50-pair run of an airbag-built take on the Zig Kinetica, while KANGHYUK and Reebok also recently opened pre-orders for their upcoming Premier Road Modern Mid.

Expect the KANGHYUK x Reebok Classic Leather SRS to release exclusively at Dover Street Market London come August 6. Each pair is priced at $340 USD.
