UPDATE: Just reminding anyone who might've slept, that February 20 is the drop date for this ultra-premium High and Lows NPC Tennis Trainer. Peep some new photos of the shoe below.
Our Perth homies from Highs and Lows have taken the classic NPC tennis trainer and given it the most premium rework we've ever seen before on a Reebok. While keeping the traditional tennis white theme, HAL incorporates the blue from a local hardcourt used during the Hopman Cup for the heel and branding highlights, with woodgrain eyelets as a nod to classic tennis rackets — but that's not even the best part! What takes this shoe to the upper echelon of collaborations is the supple Gerecke European deer leather that feels absolutely amazing. Seriously, photos do not do this shoe justice. The only thing we can compare it to is the beautiful pair of elkskin driving gloves our Assistant Editor likes to flaunt on the weekends — it really turns this otherwise simple NPC retro into a ultra-premium sneaker that's leagues ahead of any vintage Gucci, Bally or FILA sneaker we've every owned! As we get ready for next weekend's release we'll share more photos of the Highs and Lows x Reebok NPC UK.
