Last year, Queens, N.Y. skate brand Bronze 56k collaborated with Reebok on a successful Club C pack. Bringing this effort to several other classics in the Boston based brand’s catalog, the duo looks to refresh the Classic Leather and the Answer IV with an iconic blue and orange colorway representative of New York City.
When searching for inspiration, Bronze 56k founder Peter Sidlaukas and Reebok looked to the urban capital that is New York City, finding inspiration in the city’s sports culture and skate scene. This influence is seen on the Answer IV, adding ’90s skate nods like the gumsole to the basketball silhouette. Blue and orange hues are seen across the tongue, while Bronze 56k’s dice icons is featured on the tumbled leather upper.
Similarly, the Reebok Classic Leather is constructed with premium leathers and suedes that display the same blue and orange touches. Perfect for all, the pair is arriving in unisex sizing.
“Working with Reebok has been an amazing experience for the past three years,” said founder of Bronze 56k, Peter Sidlauskas. “I think our projects keep getting stronger. It was such a great opportunity to exceed our expectations and make a full-on basketball shoe.”Peter Sidlauskas – Founder of Bronze 56k
