Fashion designer, Melody Ehsani has teamed up with Reebok to bring us the Melody Ehsani x Reebok Ventilator “Python”. This is easily the most detailed and eye catching Reebok Ventilator collab I have seen this year. Let’s take a closer look.
The Reebok Ventilator is turning 25 this year. To celebrate this accomplishment, Reebok has decided to team up with 25 shops/boutiques/designers to bring you 25 different Reebok Ventilator collaborations. The Melody Ehsani x Reebok Ventilator “Python” definitely ranks high in the ‘creative detailing’ list. Snakeskin python print covers the entire upper of the Reebok Ventilator. Ehsani makes sure to incorporate her own sense of style by putting two huge gold eye pendants on the laces. Another detail worth mentioning is the “love” and “light” embroidery found on the heels of the shoe. Rounding out the aesthetics of the shoe is a pair of matching snakeskin python laces and a gum sole bottom. You can now grab a pair of these uniquely designed shoes for the retail price of $150.

It’s a crazy shoe, and those eyes, damn! I personally can’t pull it off, but if you feel like you got the stuff, go for it! Whether I like them or not doesn’t matter, because this is exactly what a collaboration should look like. You can easily tell it’s a collab, and that’s how it should be. The worst thing a collab could to is come out with a shoe that looks like just any other GR release from that particular brand. Take risks! It’s the only way you will be ale to differentiate yourself from the pack. Good stuff Melody! I respect your vision and creativity!
