Kanye West decided to change Adidas for Reebok to create the new Reebok Daytona DMX.
Kanye West and Reebok Daytona DMX.
Love him or hate him. You have to recognize that Kanye West is one of the biggest influencers on the face of the earth. He is one of those responsible for half the planet living obsessed with shoes. Or that the clothes take three sizes larger than normal – hello, Vetements – or even the fashion of mountain inspiration that takes this year.
That is why, every time it takes something unusual, all the fashion police take their units to the street to meditate on the aesthetic change and on whether it will succeed or not. And the last one the truth is that it has left us unsettled.
The author of that cathedral of good taste called ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy‘ has been seen lately with some shoes of the most special. And no, they are not new Yeezy or even, company with which you have signed a lucrative agreement. They are a Reebok Daytona DMX.
Reebok Daytona DMX Design
These sneakers, whose original design dates back to 1986, were designed for athletics. But with the passage of time it acquired great prestige in urban culture and made the leap to streetwear.
But Kanye haven’t cheated to adidas. Since 2005, the company of American origin is owned by the German brand, so the thing is at home.
Kanye West and his influence
More controversial was the episode last month in which he could be seen wearing shoes Under Armor, or when the past month of August showed us his shoe closet and saw a lot of Nike x Off-White, ASICS and Balenciaga shoes . All models that should be put in privacy, because we have never seen them with them on the street.
Watching the Daytona DMX, are some shoes that could be described as’ ugly ‘. An adjective that in 2018 is not pejorative and that means’ in fashion, pretty and toas’-and that maintain a perfect aesthetic balance thanks to its sober combination of colors (blue, gray, white and a touch of yellow). Well played, Kanye.
