When you’ve been a fan of a sneaker brand for such a long time, who would be a better fit than you to represent their new line of sneakers? If you ask Reebok, they might have just the name for you.
Known worldwide for her sultry, soulful, and melodious voice, Reebok has chosen to collaborate with Alicia Keys on a line that will be a hit with all ages.
Consisting of the Double Bubble, Classic Nylon Slim, Freestyle Hi, and Princess model; the line features use of diverse materials such as leather, suede, nylon, studs, and various colour ways. If you are a fan of Alicia’s style you might find yourself drawn to these as she worked with the design team to put her own flare into the line.
When asked about her design inspiration for the collection, Alicia stated “My style is eclectic and I wanted to make sure I put my own twist on the sneakers. For me, inspiration comes from everywhere; the streets of New York, the music I listen to, Fashion, my friends, the world around me. It’s about creating something that’s not only wearable but is cool and makes you feel confident and at your best! I definitely went for street, style and stage-three important things to me.
Alicia also mentioned that she chose the Freestyles and Classic Nylon because she wore the freestyles when she was a kid. “The 5411s were my first pair,” stated Alicia. “They take me back to a totally carefree time. The silhouette was so respected on the streets and I love the fact it still is today. The Classic Nylon Slim has such a good shape, definitely my favorite low-silhouette. The 5411s defined my look back in the day and have endured to be just as fresh now as they were then. But my new favorite is the Double Bubble!!! I am in love with those!”
Alicia’s line can be found on Reeboks online shop and range from $64.99 – $99.99.
