Calling all sneakerheads and fans of the '80s. Two new pairs of Teyana Taylor's Reebok Classics are here, and they're everything sweet dreams are made of, literally — they give off candy vibes in a cool-girl way. One pair is hot pink, and the other is an electric teal, so the "Color Bomb Pack" is definitely aptly named.
The singer/actress/Kanye West protegé teamed up with the activewear brand to re-release the Freestyle Hi sneaks in honor of the 25-year anniversary of their first release in 1982. So, these bad boys are true retro. (It's also known as the 5411, a reference to he original price.)
First, the brand re-released the shoe in black and red colorways, along with the classic stark white. (Which my brother so kindly calls my "nurse shoes." Let the record show that these are cool, and really, really comfortable.) The latest release delivers a dose of eye-catching brights with Pink Craze and Mineral Mist.
“The 5411’s really opened the door for creativity in women's fashion, it gave permission for sneakers to be feminine,” Taylor said when Reebok first announced the re-release and the partnership.
Not to mention, these shoes are more than just their looks. “I’m a serious sneakerhead, I can dance in anything, but the 5411’s are so lightweight and narrow and they have the ankle support,” added the fitness fanatic.
Here's a look at the latest and greatest in throwback sneakers.
Each pair is $75 on Reebok's website — while they last, that is.
