Helen Kirkum and Reebok have come together again to reimagine the Zig. Following on from their Sole Fury collaboration, this one-off release counts 20 unique pairs of sneakers, each handmade using repurposed Reebok sneakers by Kirkum in her East London studio.
Inspired by the Zig’s skeletal-like sole, Kirkum reimagined the Zig’s upper as if a cage, overlaying and overlapping materials so that the lining is left exposed in parts. In some instances, there may be slight differences between the right and left sneaker, and in the case of pair 17 it is the only pair with a neon collar from the Ventilator.
This is pair 17/20 and comes with a limited edition zine exclusive to this launch and a personalised note from Helen.
