hummel Heat Up the REACH LX 6000 with Fresh AdditionsRelease: 14 August 2020
ICYMI, the REACH LX 6000 is hummel’s latest heritage-inspired silhouette, packed full of old-school cues from a 90s handball sneaker, and renewed with modern styling and tech. Input from sneaker design wizards The Foot Soldiers, combined with insight from handball prodigy Alex Dujshebaev, has delivered a concept unlike no other. This is a steezy sneaker that’ll be the perfect addition to any outfit.
While the Archive collection celebrated hummel’s rich 100-year history with bright palettes and retro materials, this new series embraces the clean and contemporary Scandi aesthetic. Colours are stripped back to monochromatic tones of ‘Cream’, ‘Bone White’, and ‘Black’, allowing the exquisite suede and mesh combo to sing through. Elsewhere, the mixture of ripstop layers further highlights the upper’s carefully deconstructed design.
Good looks are backed up with cushy feels, as the ergonomic OrthoLite footbeds cradle the foot in tandem with the lightweight and flexible midsole made from hummel’s special REACH compound. Because the colours are stripped back, it bears all of the technological prowess hummel have impressively packaged into the REACH LX 6000’s slender form. All of which is demonstrated in this slick short film they’ve put together.
Like the Archive collection, only the world’s finest footwear boutiques will carry the next drop of REACH LX 6000s. Find them at Afew, Hanon, Footshop, and other select stores. Visit our comprehensive Where To Buy guide for a full list of stockists.
