To celebrate the latest installment of the science fiction thriller, global footwear company Reebok partners up with 20th Century Fox and Extra Butter in the release of the Predator sneakers. The model takes on the silhouette of the popular DMX RUN 10 — "a battle-hardened veteran" that is identified with durability and superior support.
Yet, functionality is not the most illuminating feature of Reebok's Predator sneakers. The silhouette heavily references the movie franchise. From the breathable yellow mesh gusset that loosely references the creature's non-combat attire to the glow-in-the-dark graphics that are informed by the film's finale, Reebok's sci-fi-inspired footwear is truly packed with design-forward references. In addition, a direct nod to the 1987 release of the movie is made through "a ghoulish spine trophy souvenir" on the laces.
