JJJJound's Crisp White Reebok NPC II Is Dropping This Week
Take a closer look.
Justin Saunders‘ JJJJound has made a name for itself in the world of footwear collaborations, consistently producing timeless hits that are sought after for their focus on simplicity and premium material-centric aesthetics. Now, JJJJound continues its collaborative relationship with Reebok, following up on a recent teaser with more information regarding the release of the NPC II.
The Reebok Newport Classic (now known as the NPC) has its roots in tennis, specifically harking back to the 1980s when Boris Becker and John McEnroe were in their element. Then, and even today, the tennis uniform is strictly clean and minimal, and this played into Reebok’s look and feel perfectly — in turn, creating the now-iconic NPC. JJJJound echoes the footwear giant’s expertise in classic minimalism for its NPC II collaboration, decking its pair in an abundance of premium white pebbled leather.
In addition to this, you’ll find a nylon tongue in cream that complements the muted off white tones of the sole unit and terry cotton toweling sock liner. JJJJound’s signature is stamped on the lateral mid-panel in gold lettering, while a non-marking outsole and crisp white laces complete the timeless look.
Per JJJJound’s Instagram account, its Reebok NPC II collaboration will be available to buy sometime this week. Stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for more information as news unfolds.
