Reebok’s relationship with some of their collaborators have allowed for exciting limited-edition products over the years. This week, Japan’s The Black Eye Patch debuted a new “Designed By” collection, available in Japan.
Reebok has enlisted Japanese streetwear brand The Black Eye Patch for a new collaboration, which sees the local brand applying their distinct aesthetics to two essential Reebok styles, as well as an accompanying apparel capsule collection. Already available in Japan, the new project is simply titled “Reebok Designed by The Black Eye Patch”, which communicates the entire collection with an extremely high degree of accuracy. The results are also simple, but quite enticing. First up, Black Eye Patch, or BEP for short, take on the retro GL-3000 sneaker, a simple runner constructed from nylon and featuring soft suede overlays. Available in white- or black-based color schemes, each pair features a number of BEP signature logos displaying “Caution”, “Danger”, or “Handle with Care” instructions. The CL Legacy AZ follows suit, available in black or blue, and adding “This Side Up” and “Priority Shipment” labels to each heel.
