Reebok and Hasbro has teamed up to release an exciting new MONOPOLY inspired footwear collection in August 2008. Coinciding with the highly anticipated release of Hasbro’s MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition board game, the MONOPOLY footwear collection by Reebok will feature a variety of different styles for toddlers, kids, men and women.
Reebok’s design team took inspiration from the game pieces MONOPOLY, such as dice, tokens, Chance and Community Chest cards, houses and hotels, and MONOPOLY money, to create details for the laces, lace lock, prints, colors and the overall design element of the shoes.
The first models to launch in the collection pay tribute to the board itself and the global recognition that it possesses. The line that is scheduled to debut worldwide in late August will include the Reverse Jam designs and will be available for a retail price range of $40 for toddler sizes and $85 for men’s sizes. The women’s Courtee designs will be available in both a mid and low cut for retail price of $75-80.
Slated to launch in November 2008, the second wave will consist of a collection dedicated to the icons of the board. The Reverse Jam design of the Community Chest, hotels, houses and Chance will be available for a retail price range of $40 for toddler sizes and $85 for men’s sizes. The women’s Courtee design of the luxury houses and luxury hotels will be available in both a mid and low cut for a retail price of $75-80. nitro:licious for Sneaker News
