Editor’s Notes: BAPE's luxurious imprint, BAPE BLACK, teams up with Reebok for a stylish redo of two vintage sneaker models: the Electrolyte and Aztrek 96.

Unlike the typically loud collaborations we're used to seeing from BAPE, this pack of four sneakers is rather understated, playing into BLACK’s luxury aspirations. Check out the runners in more detail in the gallery above.
