In formulating its latest collaboration with Reebok, Miami’s Shoe Gallery looks to its home city’s rich and vibrant Cuban community, paying tribute to the thousands of Cubans who made the journey to the United States via the Mariel boat lift in the 1980s. The resulting Reebok Ventilator “El Mariel’ can be viewed as an homage to the American dream itself, which, for many of these immigrants, was epitomized by prospect of owning their own Riva Yacht. Consequently, the tonal white leather upper of the shoe has a blue-tinged lining reflecting the yacht’s interior, while the translucent outsole features a cleverly placed anchor to add to the nautical theme. Retailing for $124.99, the kicks are available starting tomorrow at Shoe Gallery.
