Reebok and Kanghyuk Repurpose Car Airbags for Latest Classic Leather
Boston, MASS. / AUGUST 3, 2021 – After being teased during Kanghyuk’s COLLECTION 10 preview earlier this year, today Reebok and the South Korean label announce the official release of the Reebok x Kanghyuk SRS Classic Leather for Advanced Concepts ($340 USD). The collection will be offered in a limited run of 25 pairs, available exclusively at Dover Street Market London.
This capsule is a continuation of the Advanced Concepts handmade project, a design originally conceived in Kanghyuk co-founder Sanglak Shon’s graduate collection. The project was then debuted with the Sole Fury in 2019. The previous product was crafted using only repurposed airbags, but the Reebok x Kanghyuk Classic Leather also features an upper made from leftover garment dyed material from KANGHYUK’s ready-to-wear collection.
The reconstructed version of the Classic Leather still holds the signature features of the iconic 70’s Reebok model, now created using laser cut airbag material construction.
The Reebok x Kanghyuk SRS Classic Leather will be available in Tonal Red—a signature color for the South Korean Brand—in unisex sizing exclusively at Dover Street Market London beginning August 6.
