The Reebok x Leaders1354 collaboration has been pushed back quite a few times and i know some of you like me are eagerly awaiting an official release. Yesterday on their blog Leaders1354 posted some new pictures of the Reverse Jam along with a new release date. Everything is set now and the official release will be held on November 8th.
The “Leaders1354 Jam” includes a grip of details such as metallic silver, 3M material, perforated suede, crackled leather, patent leather, premium leather, ostrich, and croc’d leather. Think theres enough different materials on there for you? The sole inspiration was from the Chicago Transit Authority train system map and the actual train. Chicago operates around the red, blue, green, yellow, orange, purple, brown, and pink line trains so they are all represented by the different color speckles. The red and blue line trains are the cities major lines and both run close to both store locations (hence the two colorways). The transparent blue tinted outsole represents Lake Michigan with the Chicago Transit map visible through it.
The release party will take place Friday at D’vine (1950 W.North ave). Leaders1354 will be releasing 75 pairs of these sneakers ranging from sizes 6.5-15 on Saturday at the North Side location as well as in their webstore. Limited edition tees and a fitted cap will also be made available.
