Reebok has confirmed two new colorways (GX0117, GX0511) for its outdoor-inspired Zig Kinetica II “Edge”. Carrying forward key design elements like Vibram Ecostep technology from the sneaker’s FW21 introduction, “Edge” continues to explore the many ways in which society interacts with nature – where utility meets the unexpected. SS22 colorways ($130) are available globally beginning January 15 from Reebok.com and select local retailers.
New for 2022, “Edge” is offered in a women’s-specific execution (GX0117) built with tonal greys, taking cues from a receding urban jungle. The season’s unisex iteration (GX0511) is comprised of earthy black, brown, and green overlays across the upper, seated atop a chalky Zig outsole.
Design elements carried forward for SS22 include:
- Textile base upper with stitch overlays and rubberized grid print.
- ‘Ghost camo’ aesthetic reinterpreted through asymmetrical eye stay layout.
- Floatride Fuel midsole paired with Zig Energy Shell provides cushioning and stability.
- Floatride Energy forefoot for enhanced underfoot cushioning.
- Made from 30% minimum pre-consumer recycled content, the Vibram Ecostep lugged outsole is abrasion-resisting and ensures grip and foot protection.
In 2020, Reebok’s Zig Kinetica ushered in a new era for the brand’s historic ZigTech technology of the 2010’s. On its heels, Zig Kinetica II would further modernize the sport-style model through an amplified vis-tech design. In fall 2021, Zig Kinetica II “Edge” began to explore Reebok’s overbuilt design DNA and technology with functionality at its core, paying respect to scenes where developed structures have given way to the natural world. The “Edge” series has since enjoyed a strong introductory campaign via coveted inline releases and experimental collaborations with GORE-TEX and rap-fashion icon A$AP Nast.
The SS22 Zig Kinetica II “Edge” ($130) collection is available globally beginning January 15 from Reebok.com and select local retailers.
