Swizzy is doing his thing! His sneaker collection with Reebok Classics was officially announced at the PROJECT show in Las Vegas on 16 February 2011 (yes, I know I’m mad late with this one!).

The design is apparrently based on Shawn Kemps’ Kamikaze II, but takes it to the next level with innovative designs and bold colours, like the neon pink and purple ‘fishscale’ design, shown in the first pic (not my favourite).

Swizz Beatz for Reebok

Known for producing futuristic, bass-heavy beats, with  simplistic yet catchy  club anthem-type hooks, for a variety of pop and urban artists the world over; it seems producer extraordanaire Swizz Beatz is about to do a collabo of a different kind…this time with sportswear brand Reebok.

Following in the footsteps of fellow producer/rapper Kanye West, who designed the insanely popular Nike Air Yeezy’s (and let’s not forget his other sneaker collaboration with mammoth French fashion house Louis Vuitton) , Swizz Beatz is the latest to jump on the bandwagon of celeb/sneaker design collaborations.

The hi-top sneakers, have quite a bulky stance, but with the synthetic materials used also have a bit of a space-age, basketball type appeal to them.

The sneaks really pop, particularly in the ‘grape juice’ and ‘bumblebee-type’ colourways.

Unfortunately no information on the release date has been made available as yet.

So, what do you think? Dope or not?
