National Geographic is back with another sneaker collaboration, this time with Reebok, to embellish seven pairs of shoes with a natural aesthetic. In this article, let’s explore this particular pair of sneakers with Storepc.
Comprising the Club C, Club C Revenge, Classic Leather Legacy AZ, Floatride Energy 3 Adventure, and Nano X1 Adventure, National Geographic outfitted them all with natural-like color palettes. Vans’ collaborations from May 2020 focus on their popular magazine covers, while the Reebok collaborations seen here are in “Washed Green/Acid Gold/Soft Camel” and “Straw S18-R/Soft Camel” on Club C /Bold Yellow” Classic Leather Legacy AZ with snakeskin-patterned sneaker upper and Sahara print inlay.
Club C is definitely the star of the collection due to the depth of the design. A combination of green suede, smooth suede and khaki brown suede on the heel, yellow and brown details on the tongue are reminiscent of desert floors. For Club C Revenge, neon and camouflage brown combine to create an exploratory theme, highlighted by a base emblazoned with Lost World of Maya.
Less exciting, but still appropriately themed, Reebok’s Floatride Energy 3 Adventure is a unisex iteration inspired by the colors, textures and bioluminescence of marine life. Their tops are also made with at least 30% recycled material and feature hydrophilic elements like a ripstop mesh upper. Last but not least is the Nano X1 version, which also comes in male and female variants, both inspired by African Safari.
The National Geographic x Reebok collaborative series is now available for purchase from Reebok’s website, provided you have membership access, otherwise the series will launch more broadly on May 23, 2021 at 10AM ET. Prices range from $80 to $140, with children’s shoes being slightly cheaper.
This is an introduction to how the National Geographic x Reebok series takes us on a global adventure. Stay tuned to Storepc for updates on the latest fashion trends and sneaker info.
