Roland Berry x Reebok CL SW Canvas Mid “City Series”

Reebok continues to work with Roland Berry, a collaboration that we have seen now for several seasons. This time the worked on a different sneaker then usual – the CL SW Canvas Mid.
“Berry has given a very simple silhouette a rather complex appearance though the use of various types of graphics, colours and materials. Each pair of kicks draws upon classic imagery from their assigned city, for instance Los Angeles features a cool blue colorway, whilst the uppers are littered with paisley print and graphics of palm trees and low rider bikes.

New York is represented by Berry’s reinterpretation of the city’s subway system and notoriety for graffiti, whilst Mexico City’s most obvious inspiration comes from the colours of the national flag. Turning back the clocks, London finds itself in medieval history, while Moscow uses imagery from the Soviet era. The Tokyo themed sneakers feature nice details, but will not see a release in these parts due to the usage of graphics depicting the Japanese army during wartime, which could cause sensitivity issues.” Via Streething.
The series will release step by step between September and October of this year.
