Following its first look, additional views of the upcoming Extra Butter x Reebok Ventilator “Street Meat” are showcased. Designed to celebrate the Reebok Ventilator’s 25th anniversary, New York-based retailer Extra Butter, reinterprets this classic runner in a unique “Street Meat” finish, inspired by the growing emergence of halal food carts in New York City.
In case you were wondering, halal food references to mostly types of meat and animal tissue, excluding pork, that are permissible for Muslims to eat. With the shoe’s overall palette embodying what you would find in a typical halal plate, such as chicken, lamb and falafel – the shoes’ nubuck upper intertwines the meat-inspired tones perfectly for an earthy finish, while a Yellow rice speckled midsole mixed with White, adhered to a multicolor outsole signify the special sauce mostly found on halal food.
Look for this special edition Reebok Ventilator at select retailers starting February 6th.
