END. Excavate Some ‘Fossil’ Reebok Instapump Fury CollaborationsRelease: 21 November 2020
END. are not letting up with collaborations in 2020. Having already worked with Reebok on the DMX Trail Shadow ‘Mercury’ right at the beginning of the year, the UK-based retailer returns to the Vector brand with two complementary takes on the Instapump Fury, dubbed the ‘Fossil’ pack.
An exercise in archaeology, these craggy kicks draw upon the rocky terrain around the world that is routinely excavated in search of ancient treasures and historical artefacts. END. express this by using cracked textures throughout the Fury’s namesake Pump bladder. This contrasts with pale shades of ‘Pure Grey’ and ‘Classic White’ on one pair, while the other uses ‘True Grey’ (which is actually more of a navy) and ‘Classic White’. Both editions feature very fluffy suede toe caps, and are finished with gum rubber outsoles underneath Hexalite-embedded foam midsoles. The colab is completed with copious amounts of END. branding printed and embroidered across key areas – including the pull tabs, heel counter, and insole. The insoles further the cobbled theme by displaying a graphic of a geological cross-section. Very geeky and cool.
Raffles for both pairs of the END. x Reebok Instapump Fury ‘Fossil’ are open now via END. Launches for a November 21 release.
