The Vainl Archive x Reebok Daytona DMX is a unisex sneaker. With its low-top profile, this model allows the ankles to have a free range of mobility. Underfoot lies an air pod cushioning system, which provides astonishing comfort. Also, the sneaker uses a traditional lace-up closure, which locks in the foot securely.
Dad shoes have been a thing now for quite a while, and they seem to remain as such for a long time. So long as there is the craze for slim-fitted pants, jeans, joggers, and the sort, a dad shoe such as the Reebok x Vainl Archive Daytona DMX is here to stay. Looking stylish and chunky, these kicks pop out with almost any outfit, slim-fitted or not.
What sticks out the most with this Reebok Daytona DMX sneaker is still its hefty midsole equipped with both DMX air pods and EVA cushioning. However, the collaboration has given this sneaker a new set of details that makes it pop out even more, such as fresh detailing on the leather and mesh upper and reflective accents all over.
Over the past decades, Reebok often comes up with a range of bizarre designs and technologies, and the public can't help but stand in awe staring at these striking silhouettes. Some of which became classics, like the Reebok DMX Daytona. First released in the 1990s, the DMX Daytona got retro-ed in 2018, in its original colorway and of course with its iconic DMX air cushioning tech. It is a pod system filled with air that flows back and forth under the foot, from the heel to the ball and back, adapting to the wearer’s every step. It was then called, almost poetically, a "moving cushion of air."
Vainl Archive head Kouhei Ohkita, whom many considered as an industry stalwart, previously collaborated with Reebok to work on the Club C Shoes. Now, Reebok and his company rejoined and released the Reebok Daytona DMX x Vainl Archive, whose silhouette looked as if it were made for the future or, quite possibly, from the future.
