In order to livened up the then humdrum culture of London urban fashion scene, told by designers Sofia Prantera and Russell Waterman. They invited Silas Holmes, an American who they both known through previous engagements, as the creative lead for their new venture, Silas and Maria. With his understanding of urban culture and all that are within modern Americana, Holmes quickly transformed the label into an up-and-comer within the international fashion circle. But, at the height of the label popularity, Silas Holmes quietly faded into the background and disappeared. But what he embodied continued on till this day.
This year, in the celebration of Silas and Maria (or simply called SILAS by most) 10th year anniversary and its ongoing popularity. The label is launching a series of special collaborations, including this limited Reebok sneaker.
Based on an updated version of the Reebok NPC (New Port Classic), the SILAS x Reebok NPC II features a premium leather upper embossed in crocodile skin pattern. The original logo of Reebok is partially embroidered with gold threads while the sole is made entirely out of natural gum/rubber.
