The Furykaze takes both worlds by combining two sneakers in one. Taking off hints from the laceless feature and the Pump technology of the Reebok Instapump Fury and the superior lockdown feature of the Kamikaze II, these high-cut sneakers guarantee to keep the feet and ankles secure and stable. The modified cleatie design and the collar inspired by the scorpion's tail allows an easy on and off wear despite the high construction of the shoe.
The Reebok x Future Furykaze is a unisex shoe that is available in men's sizes measuring from 4-13.
Future follows his first sneaker release with the Reebok x Future Furykaze. Basing on its name, the rapper combines two of the most iconic sneakers the Kamizake II and the Instapump Fury. The sneaker also draws massive design inspirations from his astrological sign, the Scorpio. The hairy upper suede reflects the arthropod's hairy legs, tails, and claws; the molded vamp mimics the segmented carapace, and the TPU heel collar folds down to a level to echo the scorpion's tail.
To style these high-top sneakers, it is best to pair it with sweatpants and a sweater, just like how the rapper wore it on the ad campaigns. For the ladies joining the Furykaze craze, it is suggested to wear it with leggings or trousers to fully show the unique silhouette of the shoe. This Future collaboration sneaker is available in two colorways, Sandstone and Triple Black.
Don't be intimidated by the looks. These sneakers are packed with everything that you expect from the legends of Reebok—the Kamikaze and the Instapump Fury. More than the famous Pump technology, the Furykaze also sports the Hexalite, a unique air cushioning system which softens the impact on every movement. It is paired with a crystal gum outsole for the added visual detail and traction.
Since sneakers have made their transition as lifestyle footwear, collaborations, at the same time, became a hit not only for Reebok but across almost all athletic footwear brands. Throughout the history of partnerships, hip-hop artists are among the firsts the explored this.
