Reebok Maeda Struccess

In their first collaboration, Maeda designed the Timetanium which was inspired by Time. His second design, the Emoretion, drew from Emotion.  His newest design, the Struccess, comes from Law #9: Failure.  Maeda says, “if you fail, keep trying – struggle to reach some form of success.”

Using three of Reebok’s state-of-the-art technologies, the InstaPump Fury is Professor Maeda’s canvas, and his handwritten code that decorates the shoe’s lining creates puddles of graphics all over the shoe.  With so many parts – from the pump to the carpet fiber to the Hexalite – it’s a whole different animal.

Only 300 pairs of these electrifying sneakers will be available as of July 2nd for $200 but only a portion will be available on Reebok’s website here in the US.

    Just goes to show, even big budget outfits can drop it…and this one should be droped into the nearest burn bin. I christen them “de clown shoes’ because babycakes your clown if you buy them, wear them or like them…..

    They look absolutely horrible. The Insta-pump whatever probably make them useless for proper running and the 200 $ price tag will scare the rest.

    can be used as a pop decorational thing at a place.
    not for our feet though, there is an idea of course but thats not a good or bad neither groundbreaking one yet in the wrong place.

    and i wonder how many different kind of fabrics/plastics/chemicals used on that.

    and for the last, if you were one of hippies i bet you can see these in the old times like 1970s when people were high on things. lol.
