The Hundreds and Reebok are the latest to collaborate to work on a special 25th anniversary edition of the Reebok Ventilator. It’s a little out of the ordinary to see a clothing brand collaborate on a pair of sneakers, but The Hundreds is no stranger to sneaker collabs.
Featuring two different colorway of the Ventilator, The Hundreds, Bobby and Ben, decided to take inspiration from their Zodiac signs of Taurus and Aries. The white-based pair represents Ben’s Taurus sign and the white is meant to symbolize the Cretan Bull myth. Teal accents have been added as a representation to the the surf scene of Los Angeles. The red and black pair belongs to Bobby and his Aries sign. The addition of vibrant red symbolizes fire and the gold detailing is meant to represent the Golden Fleece myth.
Both pairs utilize pig suede, a premium full grain leather and 3M accents. You can get your hands on both sneakers from the Hundreds x Reebok Ventilator “Zodiac” Collection on August 1st for $120 each.

Even though I’m not really a fan of The Hundreds, the inspiration and story behind these two designs is dope. It’s something that is really personal to Bobby and Ben and it really represents a piece of who they are. I’m liking the red pair a little more though.
