It’s been 35 years since Capcom’s flagship franchise revolutionized the fighting game genre and nearly two decades since Reebok flipped the script on training silhouettes with an Air Pump lacing system. As disparate as the two entities remain, the celebratory collection of footwear seen within their collaborative capsule is more than enough reason to fire up the old gaming system once again.
Introduced via the & More Up-Close Portraits From Reebok's 'Woman Within' Campaign, the Boston-based brand is taking the talents of its Instapump Fury to the franchise’s Street Fighter II sequel centered around the giant Russian wrestler, Zangief.
Paying homage to the fiery hues of its iconic logo, one of the most disparate constructions in the brand’s history employs a “Rich Magma” shade fit with darkened accents across the entirety of the upper. A deeper tone of Sulfur fills the suede mudguard and heel tab whereas light cream accents proffer contrasts along the inner bootie’s sock and heel liner alongside the sole unit underfoot. Affixed to the tongue, the model’s staple Pump renders a jet-black hue that comes color-matched along the presiding mesh underneath whereas the Red Cyclone’s image and “Fight” trademarks adorn the insoles in conclusion.
Currently scheduled to drop this weekend in Asia, enjoy official images of the pair below while we sit tight on the announcement of a stateside release.
