Rapper x sneaker collaborations are nothing new at this point, but historically, there have been a lot more misses than hits. Last year, Kanye West’s Nike Air Yeezy defied the odds and raised the bar for future entertainer-designed sneaker endeavors, and now producer extraordinaire Swizz Beats takes his own stab at the shoe design game. In a team-up with Reebok, Swizz has helped whip up a brand new sneaker that is sure to turn a few heads when it hits retail in 2011. The shoe sports a high cut with clean lines and an extra high tongue featuring a king-size Reebok “R” tongue label, but the standout feature has to be interesting midsole design, featuring a Zig-ish pattern that creeps almost halfway up the midsole towards the rear of the shoe. Check out another pic after the jump and let us know what you think. We’ll keep you posted on more developments from the Swizz Beats x Reebok partnership.
