About a year ago sneakersnstuff released a sneaker that was inspired by the traditional settlers of Sweden – the Sámi people. Now we have continued our journey through Sweden and it’s traditions and next stop is Dalecarlia. A province in the middle of Sweden best known for the Dalecarlian horse or “Dalahästen” as we say in Sweden. A wooden horse painted with a teqhnique called kurbits. The horse first got carved in Sweden in the 17th century as a toy for children. In 1939 the Dalecarlian horse represented Sweden at the New York World’s Fair and since then the horse has been a very strong symbol for the country. Inspired by the Dalecarlian colours and kurbits style we’re proud to introduce the Reebok SNS5000.
