Reebok Reimagines Last Night’s Gowns
Five sneakers inspired by the most jaw-dropping Met Gala looks.
Isaac Toonkel, part of Reebok’s innovation team, used the brand’s Classic Leather shoe as a canvas to create sneakers inspired by looks from last night’s Met Gala red carpet. After a night to celebrate freedom of expression in fashion, it was a fitting exercise for Toonkel, who was inspired by the most exaggerated looks of the evening. “The Classic Leather is a clean, white blank slate which means you can really add anything to it,” he says. “I thought the long and trailing trench coats, cultural garments, and other jackets were interesting. There was a lot of bold color used as accents and over entire garments for polarizing affect, which helped inspire what I created.”
