by Henrik Buzzi


Channelling one of nature’s most powerful and dependable creatures, END. have reignited their burgeoning relationship with Reebok to bring you an inspired reworking of one of the esteemed sportswear brand’s iconic runners – the Ventilator. As part of the classic sneaker’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the END. x Reebok Ventilator ‘Husky’ is informed by the striking characteristics of one of the fastest canines in the world. The Ventilator’s unparalleled combination of comfort, stability and flexibility is combined with truly distinctive reworked uppers.
Known for their double thick, long-haired coat, the Husky’s striking features are incorporated into this concept shoe, utilising nappy suede across the entire upper to give the sneaker a grey ‘coat’ of its own. Accent colours add a touch of realism with light blue used as a nod to the piercing blue eyes of the huskies’ as well as their arctic homes, whilst the pink leather tongue and toecap alludes to the dog’s famously cute tongue-out appearance while sprinting. The collaborative sneaker is finished with a branded insole featuring a printed image of a husky’s thick grey coat, two additional lace sets, branded ‘Husky’ swing tag and limited edition dual branded frosted Perspex presentation box. Releasing at END June 4th.
