Jean-Michel Basquiat X Reebok Top Down models

Reebok continues their tribute collections to the late great Jean-Michel Basquiat with a couple of new sneaker releases showcasing the sportswear brand’s Top Down model. The kicks are given the Basquiat treatment with the use of the artists signature paintings printed on the uppers and contrasted with leather accents. The release is just a part of the Fall 2009 Collection which will see further inspired kicks. Both are now available via colette. I really loved the Julian Schnabel directed Basquiat bio-pic that came out '96 starring Jeffrey Wright as the titular artist/empresario. I still watch that film whenever it shows up on TV.
