Reebok and Boston non-profit Artists for Humanity, AFH, have joined forces in an effort to break down barriers for young adults by providing paid creative work through a unique mentorship program.
Through the program, four local teens designed three limited-edition Reebok Classic sneakers that will be launched globally on Friday, April 7th:
Jonathan Vergara created a geographically-themed Reebok Classic Leather, reflecting both the brand’s birthplace as well as current residence – Bolton, Northwest England and Canton, MA respectively.
Jonathan ‘Pineapple’ Tejeda and Kathleen ‘Kat’ Canola chose the 80s Club C tennis sneaker as their canvas sourcing their palette from William the Conqueror’s coat of arms.
Thornton ‘Sparticus’ Nguyen takes off on a flight of fancy by way of the Workout Plus – a rocket ship representing life’s journey through the turbulent mists of teenage years
The Artists For Humanity x Reebok collection will be released on Friday, April 7th at Reebok Classics retailers worldwide, with a celebratory launch event at Reebok Union Square in New York City.
