Tyrrell Winston may be best known for his deflated basketball sculptures, but the Brooklyn-based artist continues to make ripples within the sneaker space through his Low-Impact Reebok collaborations.
While simple in color scheme, Winston’s work with the heritage sportswear brand bridges a gap near-and-dear to the contemporary designer: artists are athletes, too. For years, the Low-Impact Reebok Club C has been Winston’s go-to studio shoe. Since February 2022, Winston has reworked the old school tennis model twice, with his third makeover allowing him to re-up on his footwear choice.
“The shoes are a story,” explained the artist in an official press release for the Low-Impact Reebok capsule. “I wanted to create sneakers that I would wear every day – no frills – that look good new or beat to the ground.”
A Classic Leather Blue the court shoe from 1985. Like Winston’s other projects with the brand, the heritage running silhouette enjoys an all-white color scheme. The thought process behind the design was inspired by the timelessness of a white t-shirt. Furthermore, the Low-Impact Reebok Revenge OG art_by_bwe by Tyrrell Winston abandons traditional branding on the lateral mid-foot, stripping away the company’s iconic Union Jack logo to create a look that allows the sneaker’s design to revel in the spotlight. Branding hits appear on the tongue label and spine, cementing the relatively-new, but compelling partnership.
Coco, Winston’s wife, photographed campaign material for the collection. On the subject, the artist commented the following: “Classic Leather was shot at the small gym where I workout every morning, while Club C was captured in my studio. [T]here’s an intimacy to the photos…I wanted to capture the beauty of my routine through the lens of the person I am closest to in life.”
