Celebrating the 25th birthday of the Ventilator, Reebok have collaborated with Sneaker Politics to create this tasteful runner.
Creative motivation can come from a vision in your own backyard, or sometimes it arrives direct from a far-off exotic location. Derek Curry, owner of Sneaker Politics, drew his inspiration for this pair of Ventilators from unlikely geographical sources. “One of my staff takes an outrageous vacation every year. He found this spot in Western Australia, where there’s a lake that’s totally pink caused by algae. The surrounding grass is a lush emerald green, which gave us all the colours for the first shoe.
The ‘Pink Lake’ Ventilator delivers a little extra pop, with fuchsia midsoles dominating the colour blocking. Pastel pink suede tongues and micro-perf beige leather offer a nice contract in texture, while emerald green nubuck is the perfect foil to this aquatic double pack.
