As previously shown, while New York City’s A.R.C kept their collaborative Reebok PUMP 20th Anniversary Edition Pump clean in an all-over off-white suede upper, the retailer down south on the east coast, Commonwealth, keeps things streamlined as well but in grey.
For Virginia’s Commonwealth’s contribution to Reebok’s global celebration of the 20th birthday of its iconic Pump basketball shoe, the retailer crafted their entry in tonal grey. Mixing different shades of the color on the upper with different materials (suede matched with a smooth reflective tongue and toe box), the only pops of color come from the multi-colored Commonwealth-branded laces (orange, purple, yellow, and of course, grey), and an embroidered “C’MON” rally in the heel. Looking on the inside, the kicks also feature a graphic footbed for the wearer’s personal acknowledgement and enjoyment. Subdued and thoughtful (those who are thinking about going super mellow can switch out to other laces), these kicks have an easy laid-back charm that is still well balanced with a tint of sophistication. No doubt Virginia is for lovers– sneaker lovers. via: Sneaker Freaker & Commonwealth
