Just how much do the OCD habits of otakus and sneakerheads overlap? If you’re looking for parallels between the subcultures you don’t have to go t0o far, with anime lovers turning their noses up at English dubs the same way sneaker folks have a hard time swallowing retro recreations that stray too far from the OG versions. Anyway, while you continue to ponder that take a look at this intersection of the two cultures curated by Reebok, a version of the Insta Pump Fury tied in with the one year Ghost in the Shell series Stand Alone Complex. You’ll notice the sneakers themselves get their cool blue combo from the little Tachikoma bots that run around at the end of each episode, either that or you’ll shrug it off if you’re not familiar with the intricacies of anime and just pick them up for their overall sleek look. Click through to check out the Ghost in the Shell x Reebok Insta Pump Fury “Stand Alone Complex” which just arrived at Japanese retailer mita sneakers.

Last month, it looked like Asics had raced to the front of the sneaker collaboration pack thanks to several upcoming projects including Bait’s ‘Five Rings’ capsule.  In June, ‘Reebok Back’ in a big way, and their distinctive 1994 running flagship (and its HLS offspring) is the most prominent of bunch, having just showed up in ‘Spider-Man’, ‘Wolverine’ and Verbal/Ambush collabo colorways.  And here’s another animated fantasy world come to life on the Reebok Insta Pump Fury, this Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex edition celebrating the early ’00s anime and its Tachikoma walker (seeing the shoe next to its toy muse reminds you of Jun Watanabe’s second ‘Mr. Bottle Head’ Insta Pumps, no?).  These will be limited to 500 pairs with a release date TBA, so click through for more images and stick with Sneaker News for updates.  via FS
