Scan These Reebok Hiking Shoes, Get a Nat Geo ‘Inspiration’ Video
This is the first collaboration between the ’80s-fab footwear brand and the global National Geographic nonprofit.
This collection of planetary Reebok kicks, made in collaboration with National Geographic, brings both limited-edition performance and lifestyle shoes to hikers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
To bring the collection to life, Reebok collaborated with two National Geographic Explorers, Dr. Rae Wynn-Grant and Matthieu Paley, to capture riveting imagery in some of their favorite locations. The imagery was taken in places that happened to inspire some of the shoes.
But Reebok’s new nature-inspired shoes are a whole lot more than just footwear.
Each shoe also contains a unique QR code on the tongue, transporting you into what inspired the product through unique perspectives and 360-degree immersive videos. The kids’ models also feature fun facts on the inner tongue about each shoe’s theme.
It’s a shoe, a learning moment, and an outdoor experience all in one.
The collection will launch with seven styles — five for adults and two for kids. The styles featured include Reebok’s Nano X1, Floatride Energy 3, Classic Leather Legacy, Classic Leather Kids, Club C, Club C Revenge Legacy, and Club C Kids.
