We’ve seen some of the more fascinating technology-inspired sneaker collaborations to date from Reebok on their still futuristic Pump classics, everything ranging from a fairly simple (though visually impressive) Tron tribute to more intellectually demanding concepts like Sneakerology 101 courtesy of Carnegie Mellon University or the surveillance-themed VCMP Alien Stompers. The latest is somewhat closer to that latter category, the second in a trilogy of PickYourShoes-penned collabs that examine the evolving relationship we have with our by now inextricable smartphones. So even if you like the concrete-cracking durability of your decade-old Nokia candybar, you can still get in on the touchscreen frenzy by picking up the PYS x Reebok Pump Twilight Zone ‘N-Droid’. This followup to the Blackberry-inspired January release is about two-thirds silver whereas the ‘Bberry’ was all black; should we expect white and black pairs for the iPhone theme that will inevitably close out this series? Stick with Sneaker News for updates on that release, and check out some photos of the ‘N-Droid’ Pump Twilight Zone in the meantime, before you grab a pair straight from PYS.
