Reebok’s partnership with Eames has birthed a handful of stylish sneakers inspired by the latter’s iconic designs, and its latest pair might be the most eye-popping yet. The sportswear manufacturer’s new reimagined spin on its Classic Leather silhouette takes after Eames’ iconic Fiberglass furniture.

The vibrant shoes are available in three iconic Eames colors — Parchment, Sea Foam Green, and Pink — comprised of custom full-grain leather that emulates the inimitable, straw-like feel of fiberglass. Then, each colorway sits on a white rubber midsole and tonal, grippy outsole. As far as the chair itself goes, it was the first-ever example of commercially-produced plastic seating, going to show that Charles and Ray were ahead of their time, as this breakthrough piece of furniture remains admired to this day.

Additional embellishments inspired by the iconic designers include collaborative branding, an Eames Office logo, and an Eames keychain. What’s even more eye-catching is the packaging, as the shoes come in a box modeled after the famed Eames House in Los Angeles, otherwise known as the Case Study House No. 8. While this new collection is one of the more colorful kicks this partnership has birthed, previous examples include the ever-so-stylish, Rosewood-inspired take on the same Classic Leather sneaker.
