It’s a curious thing to take a classic running silhouette, alter it to share a passing resemblance to a recently revived clasic basketballer, then apply a couple of patterns from the b-ball series that permanently relagated this brand to runner-up status. But that’s the exact recipe for success as cooked up on the new Reebok Ventilator HLS, a model that seems to borrow a bit of Elephant and speckle prints as well as an almost-‘Infrared’ colorway for the kind of look that you might expect from a future civilization trying to piece together what sneaker culture was like as the late ’80s became the early ’90s.
