Reebok and Marvel Comics have been collaborating on Spider-Man sneakers for a while now, but this upcoming collection is a reminder that in the ten years since Sam Raimi’s first Peter Parker film started the CGI superhero revolution, it was a team-up in The Avengers that made the biggest splash. The Marvel x Reebok partnership grows stronger thanks to a variety of characters on a mix of familiar and updated silhouettes whose total of ten different drops offers an RBK-penned answer to the highly successful Star Wars x adidas Originals collab. We’ve already seen detailed images of the Captain America, Wolverine and Chamber styles, so check out the rest of the set after the jump below, let us know which hero’s design is your favorite and stick with Sneaker News for US release info. via Sneaker Freaker//SC
Being a comic fan myself, I'm definitely excited about this pack. Kudos to Reebok for actually taking time to work out some of the intricate details on the shoe instead of just making a black and white shoe and slapping a Venom moniker on it (Nike take notes). IMO, the whole pack has shaped up to be a success. Plus, I love the fact that they've decided to use a few less well known characters within the pack to give true comic geeks like me a little fan service. Never would I have thought to see pair of kicks modeled after Deadpool, Chamber, or Hydra! I tip my hat to thee Reebok x Marvel.
Marvel X Reebok is killing it.. these are hot, I also like the wolverines and deadpools. so much win
what show? there was a show of Generation X? I'm pretty sure there was a TV movie/pilot, but Chamber damn sure wasn't in it. I remember quite clearly being one pissed off ten year old when that came out.
red skull? i like the pump, so red skulls and deadpools for me. but those venoms are kind of dope. you can just make out a little bit of the liner, but it looks crazy. i love all the details.
Chamber was one of the main X men in Generation X. You probably don't remember the show fox had of them. he was in it. He's actually a big deal for his series. I do need to know release dates and prices, I hope they spread it out.
