Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announced their second collaborative project, the Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp, calling on the plant fabric that’s been a mainstay in Maharishi collections since the 1990s.
Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and a strong respect for nature and utilitarian design. Following their spring 2022 collaboration on Reebok’s Classic Leather AZ, this next instalment continues to showcase the brands’ mutual respect for heritage sports footwear.
“This is yet another great opportunity for us to delve into Reebok’s rich archive of classics,” commented Maharishi founder, Hardy Blechman.
Built with an Army Green rubber outsole, Chalk midsole, and an Off-White hemp fabric upper, Maharishi’s LT Court Hemp offers a natural, understated take on the 40-year-old court model.
“Hemp belongs to one of Earth’s most versatile, resilient, and advanced plant families, which makes it particularly meaningful to us as a medium for product creation,” explained Blechman, alluding to Maharishi’s dedication to hemp fabrication and use of other organic materials.
Additional key design elements for the shoe include a soft suede heel tab and terry lining, Maharishi all-over logo arch bandage, Maharshi logo window box, and OG LT Court components like a deconstructed toe box and cup sole tooling.
