Just like Katy Perry when talking about Mariah Carey, everyone loves a good throwback. That’s why Reebok’s decision to relaunch the Rapide silhouette was definitely welcomed with open arms. Minus the pop diva shade, of course.
Arriving in its OG colorway to really give us “blast from the past” vibes, the refined Rapide blends heritage aesthetic with new age influence. The design is simple, utilizing a blend of textile and suede on the “Skull Grey” upper with a classic EVA midsole in “Chalk” to absorb shock. The silhouette is finished off with a “Twisted Berry / Vital Blue” signature vector logo, which appears multiple times on the tongue, heel, and built into the medial and lateral side panels. Now that the chunky sole is the trend of the times in the sneaker community, it looks like the Rapide was just ahead of the curve all along.
The Reebok Rapide is available now in a variety of colorways, but the OG hue at hand arrives this Thursday (August 2) in-store and online.
