The predecessor of this embroidered sandal dates back to 1993. Performance label Reebok, contemporary brand Needles, and retailer BEAMS come together to elevate the aesthetic of the BEATNIK to suit the modern streetwear environment of today.
The silhouette is interesting, to say the least. Retailing for approximately $170 USD, the model is definitely not an obvious choice for the style-minded consumer. However, the names tied to the re-design — Reebok, Needles, and BEAMS, might change that due to sheer status.
The embroidered sandal boasts an adjustable Velcro strap, a fully dark silhouette and a purple butterfly that adds a playful design element at the end. Ideal as gardening shoes or for trips to the store, the triple collaboration will surely have an interesting outcome.
