Kind of Blue
Words by Sam Arojo
This month has already seen so many releases and unfortunately for our wallets they just keep coming. This time it’s Reebok’s turn to bless us with 50 shades of blue. Well not literally but the 50 shades reference is relevant right now.
Teaming up with long term chums Mita, RBK and the Tokyo based retailer have reworked the timeless Ventilator runner in the year of its 25th anniversary.
Not the most popular model in comparison to Reebok’s Classic Leather and Pump lineups, fans of the brand and the shoe will be pleased to see this pair being delivered in a premium suede, and that blue though! Those blues though! Night navy, faux indigo and a batik blue give the pair a calm and laid back look for such a technical shoe. An off white midsole gives contrast to the shoe and the colourway is made complete with a splash more blue on the outsole. Add both Reebok and Mita logos to the tongue and what you have is a pretty gorgeous shoe.
The Mita x Reebok Ventilator release on Saturday 21st February in select Reebok retailers for about £110. A lot for a Reebok runner yes, but for quality like this you won’t regret it.
