The party don’t stop ’til the end of 2015. The Reebok Ventilator’s 25th anniversary has brought forth some incredible looks for the silhouette, but the collaboration with Footpatrol as part of the celebration is perhaps one of the most lively designs that has hit the sneaker streets. Dubbed “Hotstepper”, we’ve taken a look at these kicks quite a few times and now we’ve got another view of the beauty.

The Footpatrol x Reebok Ventilator “Hotstepper” plays no games, as it draws inspiration from the 80’s styled Reebok Step. The Reebok Step was one of the most used pieces of equipment at most English leisure centres, and Footpatrol took hold of the Crystal Blue, Aubergine and Blazing Pink color scheme for the Reebok Ventilator.

The Footpatrol x Reebok Ventilator “Hotstepper” favors terry cloth and micro-suede material that is set in White to allow the accenting colors to pop. This rendition of the Ventilator shows off some serious arch supports, while we witness the inverted Reebok branding which makes for a mirrored effect. These will be landing at select Reebok retailers May 23rd for those who are interested in copping.


Author’s Take

We really have seen a lot of different looks for the Ventilator, but when fine materials and a vivid color scheme like this pops up, there’s hardly any competition.

Footpatrol has really been sticking their foot in Things with these collaborations (see what I did there) and the result has been nothing but success.
