Reebok and Kanghyuk Repurpose Airbags for Latest Footwear Collaboration
November 10, 2020 – Boston, MA – After being teased during KANGHYUK’s “COLLECTION 8” preview earlier this year, today Reebok and the South Korean label announce the official release of the Reebok x Kanghyuk Zig Kinetica. The collection will be offered in a limited run of fifty pairs, available exclusively at Dover Street Market London.
This capsule is a continuation of the “Advanced Concepts” handmade project, whose design was originally conceived for co-founder, Sanglak Shon’s graduate collection. The project was then debuted with the Sole Fury in 2019. As the previous product was crafted using repurposed airbags, the Reebok x Kanghyuk Zig Kinetica features an upper made from leftover material from KANGHYUK’s ready to wear collection.
Similarly to existing versions of the Zig Kinetica, these shoes feature the silhouette’s signature three-part energy-return system. The distinctive zigzag-shaped sole captures and returns the kinetic energy of every step.
The Reebok x Kanghyuk Zig Kinetica collection will be available in two colorways – Black and White – in unisex sizing for £250 exclusively at Dover Street Market London beginning November 13th.
