Athletic apparel company Reebok has teamed up with Marvel (!) to design a limited edition of shoes that were inspired by some of the comic powerhouse’s most popular superheros.
Perhaps they are emulating the success of the Star Wars & Adidas collaboration (previously featured here and here)? Perhaps they are capitalizing on the current wave of fantastic superhero movies and related merchandise?
Whatever the reason, you can bet that these will be in high demand, and will be snatched up by geeks and sneaker aficionados alike.
My favorites are Captain America, Deadpool, and Black Widow. Which ones are yours?
For more pictures of the shoes — and to see what surprises the insoles have to offer — see SNKROLOGY.
P.S. — I LOVED The Avengers movie. I thought it was the best superhero movie I had seen in a long time and it further solidified my love for everything Joss Whedon. What were your thoughts on it? And did you watch the very last scene — the one that played after the credits? (See here if you missed it.) Ack I can’t wait for the next movie!
I love the Captain America ones! I am a comic book movie lover and a HUGE fan of Joss Whedon, so I super loved The Avengers. It was awesome.
Can you please tell me where I can purchase these trainers from?
As of now they have not yet been released, and a release date is still not available. All I know is that they will be released this summer. Hope that helps!
Thank you for you response, will the website update us when they are to be released? Also how much are they going to be?
Some of the designs you can already order here: http://www.overkillshop.com/en/search/keywords/marvel/
I just got my Black Widow-ones, super awesome.
I love the concept but they don’t have enough of the character in them for me. They’re iconic enough but I still want a little bit more of the personal identity rather than just the color/concept.
I’ve seen photos where at the bottom of the shoe it displays the character. You put your feet together and connects a design like deadpool jumping grabbing his sword.
P.S. I love your redesign!
Deadpool is a must for me who said geeks don’t have swagg lol I know someone has asked this but how can we pre order or buy these I even went to the Reebok site and it shows no info on them any help will be very appreciated
