Back in January of this year, contemporary R&B phenom Khalid managed to expand his partnerships into the sneaker world by inking his official partnership with Reebok. Aside from serving as the poster boy in the Reebok Classic Leather Legacy campaign, Khalid and the Boston-based imprint are supporting this footwear launch with a new initiative entitled the “Write Your Legacy” mentorship contest. Commencing today, aspiring music artists can submit a two minute video involving a 60 second singing sample, as well as a short message revolved around the legacy they want to leave behind. The winner will be accepted into a mentorship program that involves two 60 minute singing/song writing workshops with Khalid himself and his personal producers Denis Kosiak and Khyire Tyler to help boost their career path, and will be given a years-worth supply of Reebok footwear/apparel products. The contest is open until August 18th, and the winner will be contacted come September 1st.
Back to the shoe design, the Reebok Classic Leather Legacy is a tale of both old and new as it serves as a nod to retro runners such as the Aztec racing shoe from 1979 and the Classic Leather runner from 1983. Uppers are comprised of a mixture of ripstop bases, leather vector logos, and suede overlays, all of which are mated down below with a chunky sole piece reflective of today’s modern style. Currently, the silhouette is available on Reebok.com for $80 in several colorways including a blue/red, white/red, burgundy/black, and more for both men and women.
