KANGHYUK Burn Red Rubber with the Reebok Premier Road ModernRelease: 30 October 2020
Experimental Korean collaborators KANGHYUK continue their interesting take on the Reebok Premier Road Modern. The automotive-inspired model was last released in all-black shades with overt reference to car tyres, but the next colourway that’s releasing soon takes a racier red approach. Strap in for the wild ride.
The Reebok Premier Road Modern is a contemporary continuation of the Vector brand’s mid-2000s flagship running line, but in 2020 it’s taken on a whole new presence. While the new silhouette has featured as part of Reebok’s inline offerings, KANGHYUK are definitely giving it a big push.
Appearing in two-toned white and red, the complex multilayered appearance of the Premier Road Modern allows for plenty of customisation. There is a mix of moulded synthetic, rubberised sections, and translucent mesh panels all over the upper, which is actually all one piece. The high-tech upper is paired with an equally progressive performance midsole that features Reebok DMX Ride technology attached to tyre tread–inspired outsoles.
The KANGHYUK x Reebok Premier Road Modern will release early on October 23 via an exclusive pop-up at Korean boutique BOONTHESHOP, before a wider international drop via select Reebok retailers on October 30.
