South2 West8 and Reebok have revealed their first joint product, the South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge, which has technical characteristics and aesthetics inspired by the ancient Japanese fly-fishing technique “Tenkara.”
“We were motivated by an image of an open field merging with an urban metropolis and the concept of connecting the two,” said the brand director of South2 West8. “SOUTH2 WEST8 has little interest in extremely complex or high-tech designs, preferring instead athletically practical designs. In this regard, the Zig design retains its usefulness while including beautiful and forceful components with a strong visual presence. These qualities make it an ideal fit for SOUTH2 WEST8 attire.”
The South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge has a textile camouflage top with Lush Green suede overlays, a spiky rubber toe cap, Green laces, and a Green heel loop to complete its military-inspired appearance. A Black and Grey midsole encases responsive Floatride Fuel cushioning under an anti-slip 30% recycled pre-consumer Vibram Ecostep lugged outsole.
The South2 West8 x Reebok Zig Kinetica II Edge will arrive exclusively at South2 West8 shops in Japan on November 5, followed by a broader release on November 18 at select retailers and Reebok.com. The suggested retail price is $170 USD.
