Shoe Gallery X Reebok Ventilator (El Mariel)

Date: September 01 2015

Shoe Gallery, esteemed sneaker supplier to Florida's capital of sports, fashion, balling and shot calling, have linked up with Reebok Classic to deliver this fetching rendition of the Ventilator. It's been a banner year for the Ventilator, which is celebrating its 25th birthday, with a slew of captivating collaboration releases inspired by myriad muses, and this latest addition continues in the rich vein of "sneaker storytelling". Dubbed the 'El Mariel', the inspiration was the Mariel boatlift emigration of thousands of Cubans to Miami that transpired in 1980. Exercising the freedom to create art and products that many immigrants were denied in their homelands but now enjoy in the United States, the Shoe Gallery team opt for a bright white upper featuring  patent leather overlaying a perforated base, channeling the look of a proudly polished boat about to set sail to a new land. The blue leather sock lining and footbed imitates a yacht interior, and other crafty details include an anchor graphic on the translucent outsole and an embossed boat registration number. Dropping September 5th at Shoe Gallery and select Reebok Certified Network retailers.
