These Keith Haring Reeboks Are Everything
Following in the literal footsteps of Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Maeda, and Rolland Berry, Keith Haring is the latest artistic genius honored in Reebok's edgy Affili'Art collection with an awesome new series of sneakers.
A fitting tribute to the late gay pop and graffiti artist, the Reebok x Keith Haring line features bold colors, classic '80s silhouettes, and the artist's iconic "Radiant Baby," "Barking Dog," and "Everyman" figures as both embroidered details and removable components.
These eye-catching kicks were designed in collaboration with the Keith Haring Foundation, which benefits underprivileged children and supports HIV/AIDS education, research, and care. Haring died of AIDS-related complications in 1990.
"Celebrating creativity is a central goal of our brand," writes Reebok Classic vice president Todd Krinsky in a press statement. "This collection, and our partnership with the Keith Haring Foundation, allows us to re-imagine the artwork of this ground-breaking genius through a new medium that will appeal not only to his greatest fans but also introduce Haring to a new audience."
The Reebok x Keith Haring collection launches globally Feb. 10 at selected retailers. See more Reebok x Keith Haring sneaker styles on the following pages.
