More and more Reebok Ventilators will start releasing. It only makes sense since the shoes turn 25 this year. We have seen a handful of OG color schemes return and collaborations (for example the ‘Street Meat’ model with Extra Butter). Now a new pair is on the verge of dropping that will be women’s only.
Reebok called Antonia reigning from Milan, Italy to give her expertise on the Ventilator. As shown, they use leather and mesh and taking the ventilation completely. The colors make them look a bit more luxurious as the heel section is covered in black, gold in the middle and white around the toe box.
The Antonia x Reebok Ventilator will release at Hanon on February 28th.
Edit: Reebok reached out to us and shared the press release for the Antonia x Reebok Ventilator:
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its iconic Ventilator sneaker, Reebok Classic is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with ANTONIA. The result is a ladies-only sneaker, designed in collaboration with one of the most famous and forward-thinking personalities on the Italian fashion scene. The perfect synergy between two great brands, this limited-edition sneaker is characterized by a harmonious mix of femininity and sport couture, the ideal meeting point between sport heritage and high-fashion.
ANTONIA creates a high-fashion sneaker, revisiting the original silhouette and drawing inspiration from the signature design of her boutique. The look is unique, clean and bold. The classic black and white combination is jazzed up with a flash of gold that adds a high-glam feel. A shoe that plays with its contrasting elements – sophisticated and feminine in both design and materials; sporty yet stylish enough to be worn with a couture dress. Elevating the shoe’s versatility are the three differently-colored laces and the special custom-made knee sock with the ANTONIA logo.
The centerpiece of this project is a running icon launched in 1990: Ventilator. Thanks to its high-tech characteristics, Ventilator became the shoe of choice among performance-seeking runners. Twenty-five years later, this shoe has become a “Classic”, stepping out from the running world to become a lifestyle icon.
ANTONIA and Reebok Classic will present Ventilator ANTONIA during Milan Fashion Week in February (DATES), with an exclusive cocktail at ANTONIA’s boutique on Via Cusani, Milan. In conjunction, the halls of EXCELSIOR Milano will host a striking installation inspired by the sneaker, also celebrated in the Reebok corner on the first floor. The 500-piece limited edition shoe will be available in exclusive for Italy at ANTONIA and EXCELSIOR Milano, starting on February 27th.
Starting with this season, ANTONIA joins the Reebok She Certified Network, along with two other top female retailers, X-Girl (Tokyo) and Naked (Copenhagen), selected by the brand to actively collaborate on special initiatives.
2015 will be an amazing year for Reebok. Over the upcoming months, it will unveil exciting collaborations with renowned global partners, further showcasing their ongoing fascination for the Reebok brand.
