Reebok has announced the Keith Haring Collection, bringing to life the art of Keith Haring through five sneaker models across the Classic Leather, Classic Leather Legacy AZ, Club C and Club C Legacy silhouettes.
Haring’s work is intertwined with New York street culture of the 1980s – simultaneously the era when Reebok’s DNA was becoming embedded in American culture. Haring consistently operated under a powerful personal statement, “The public has a right to art” – a mindset that has continued to maintain relevance. With this collection, Reebok aspires to make Haring’s art, design and mission even more accessible for consumers.
Inspired by the same bright energy found at a museum pop-up, Reebok’s Keith Haring Collection aims to strike a balance of being bold and colorful yet also clean and wearable. Each shoe directly references a unique work by Haring – from his subway blackboard chalk drawings to his famous dancing figures – to further spread Haring’s message of peace and love.
The collection will include the Classic Leather Keith Haring, featuring one of Haring’s most recognizable themes – a dog motif; the CL Legacy AZ Keith Haring, which includes a direct nod to Haring’s dancing figures; the Club C Keith Haring, inspired by his 292 Lafayette Street “Pop Shop;” the Club C Legacy Keith Haring, which references his three-eyed smiling face and the GL6000 Keith Haring, inspired by a piece found in the Keith Haring Foundation Archive.
