This Reebok Basquiat collaboration is the second instalment of this match made in heaven.

Basquiat had his start in graffiti art, which is ever so popular these days. For this instalment, Basquiat's work is applied on the Reebok Top Down high top sneaker.

The Reebok Basquiat collaboration is available in two design options. If you're a serious sneaker head, you'll probably end up getting both.

Implications - Current fashion trends encourage consumers to flaunt their individuality and avoid following the crowds. Products like these artist-inspired shoes break the barriers of sneaker conformity by boasting bold colors and graffiti-esque designs. Companies can appeal to their target markets by using artist-inspired designs, as it will appeal to that artist's fanbase.
