Reebok Pays Tribute To Jean-Michel Basquiat

By: Annika Harris / July 23, 2009

Reebok showcases the Top Down model in its latest offerings paying tribute to Jean-Michel Basquiat, the famous NYC street artist of the ’80s and ’90s. The sneakers feature several of Basquiat’s signature, Neo-expressionist paintings on turquoise ($99.56) and black/white ($113.78) backgrounds. They’re part of the fall 2009 collection but are already available at Colette. I’m not sure I’d wear these — I’m not a b-girl, you know — but I’d surely enjoy having these on a shelf as art.
