Comprising the Club C, Club C Revenge, Classic Leather Legacy AZ, Floatride Energy 3 Adventure, and the Nano X1 Adventure, National Geographic has fitted all with a color palette similar to that of nature. While its Vans collaboration from May 2020 was focused on its revered magazine covers, the Reebok collaboration seen here serves up colorways such as “Washed Green/Acid Gold/Soft Camel” as per the Club C, or “Straw S18-R/Soft Camel/Boldly Yellow” for the Classic Leather Legacy AZ, which also features an upper sporting a snakeskin texture alongside insoles printed with the Sahara desert.
The Club C is undoubtedly the star of the show here, showing off texture and depth thanks to its combination of dark green hairy suede and smooth suede uppers, that meet a brownish-khaki suede on the heel alongside yellow details and a pebbled brown leather tongue reminiscent of a desert floor. As for the Club C Revenge, a palette of neon hues and camo-brown colors combine for an explorative theme, which is enhanced by the insole that’s printed with the Lost World of Maya.
Reebok’s Floatride Energy 3 Adventure is less exciting but still aptly themed, with both the men’s and women’s iterations being inspired by the colors, textures and bioluminescence of sea life. They are also made using at least 30% recycled material in the upper, and feature water-favoring elements such as a ripstop mesh upper.
Last but by no means least is the Nano X1, also coming in men’s and women’s variants, with both drawing from African Safaris.
The National Geographic x Reebok collaborative collection can be viewed above and is available to purchase now from Reebok’s site, assuming you have member’s access, otherwise it will drop more widely on September 23, 2021, at 10 a.m. ET.
