Thanks to Reebok, Mountain Research has had the luxury of tweaking many a beloved silhouette, from the Classic Leather to the Club C. And with their newest collaboration — which is slated to hit shelves early September — the Japanese label is highlighting the Beatnik, likening the style to their hiking boots from the early 2000s.

Since its return just a few years ago, the Beatnik has enjoyed a range of collaborations and inline releases. Its construction, too, has seen numerous overhauls, taking on Primaloft, hairy suedes, and sustainable fabrics. Here, in ode to the above-mentioned boots, the upper is built of a thick, brown-colored leather; and across the shoe’s side, Mountain Research has embroidered a flame with white and yellow thread. In addition, the brand’s logo replaces Reebok’s along the adjacent hardware.

Complete with ripple soles and grosgrain straps, the Mountain Research x Reebok Beatnik is currently set to release on September 23rd via MountainResearch.com. A global release via select retailers and Reebok.com will follow on September 27th.

In other news, Nike Dunk Prices are NOT going up.

UPDATE 9/19/2022:
The Mountain Research x Reebok Beatnik is now slated to release on September 23rd via Mountain Research and September 27th globally. Campaign imagery has also been added below.
