Mountain Research x Reebok LX2200 Nods To ‘80s Sporting Ephemera

Reebok and Japanese fashion label Mountain Research have unveiled the next piece from their growing line of collaborative releases.

Reebok’s new LX2200 takes queues from its most heralded ‘80s running models. In particular, the silhouette remolds the brand’s LX8500 luxe runner from 1985, offering a modern interpretation through contemporary construction and elevated materials. For FW22, Mountain Research furthers their story alongside Reebok via the retro running sneaker:

“While the LX2200 remains an orthodox running shoe, the details are evolutionarily modern,” commented Mountain Research designer Setsumasa Kobayashi. “Old and new coexist in harmony on the shoe – this is what piqued our curiosity for LX2200.”

Mountain Research’s archival take on the classic runner arrives with a White full-grain leather upper and Burgundy color blocking seated atop a Pure Grey rubber outsole.

“The design is inspired by 1980’s sports films,” detailed Kobayashi. “Traditional all-White sports uniforms link seamlessly with LX2200’s authentic running aesthetic, to which we’ve simply added a neo-classic twist.”

Look for the Mountain Research x Reebok LX2200 to release on December 9th exclusively from Mountain Research before its wider global launch on December 16th at select retailers and Reebok.com. The retail price tag is set at $130 USD.
