Reebok x Offspring Community Workout Plus ‘Ice’

Celebrating everything community with our collaboration with Reebok, we’re bringing you our edition of the Workout Plus ‘Ice’.

For those who are old enough to remember, the Reebok Work Out “Ice” was a big U.K. trend in the late 90s. Whether it was on the Ripple sole, in a multitude of colours and shades or finding it’s way on other Reebok models, the “Ice” sole was a must have. You’d have people teaming them up with Iceberg jackets and crazy Mosh jeans, it truly was a phenomena that swept up and down the country.

2021 we revisit this look with a few upgrades and additions in true Offspring form. We’ve used a deluxe leather throughout, Community Member taping, dual branded logos on the tongue and side window, two sets of laces and not to mention both logos peering out through that frosty outsole. Personalisation does not stop there, we have added our signature lightning bolt to the back, as well as special addition community taping at the side and double lacing option so you can switch up the laces.

Having enlisted some of our very own community members for the marketing campaign , Shot by our super talented photographer @nineteen.85 (Mark), we asked them what Reebok means to them and how the brand has evolved from everyone’s first shoe at school to now; a streetwear must have. We wanted to encapsulate and evoke nostalgic emotions of fun times with friends.  Whether it was in the park, at the skate rink or just hanging out in the community, Reebok’s rich historic heritage has always been present, and representative of UK culture through the years.

We want this shoe to give you the feeling of those good old memories and whilst you wear it, to make new ones.

In addition to all this we have created special elements to the release. With every purchase we’re giving you ice cubes tray* stamped with the brands logos to keep you cool on those summer days and you will also receive a dual branded community tote bag*.

*While stocks last

For the community, by the community; the Offspring Reebok Workout ‘ICE’.

Launching 26th June.

Nike x Skepta SK Air Tailwind

If you’re a fan of the British grime scene, this is right up your street. You will probably know all about the partnership of Skepta and Nike, both top of their game in grime music and sneakers respectively.

Initially released in 1978, the silhouette is one of the all-time favourites from Nike, and now Skepta x Nike Air Max Tailwind 5 University Red is arriving, the second sweep of the colourways for 2021.

Bringing all the energy in Nike University Red, the synthetic underlays flaunt a digital print. Alterations in the overlays from the Tailwind V included the TPU cage, much like the 5 plus. Mostly dripped in black accents, the look is finished with the chrome coatings on the small swoosh and heel clip. Collaboration branding details such as SK Air stamps on the tongue and Air Max on the heel fulfils the retro-inspired model.

Nike Air Max 90 ‘Bacon’

Nike Air Max 90 ‘DQM Bacon’ 
Bacon sandwiches on the plate and Air Max on the feet for the #offspringhqcommunity on a special Air Max Day. The wait is over – it’s been 30 years since the legendary AM90 and one year after the rumored release date. Dave’s Quality Meat rendition of the Air Max classic is back and it’s hitting the spot.
Dave Ortiz’s butcher themed New York-based street wear shop created this recipe of the perfect bacon-inspired colourway. Served up on Air Max Day. Regarded as one of the most sought after themed Air Max, the prime cuts of reds and pinks with fatty beige and crispy browns imitate the bacon rasher. All smoked on premium leathers and buttery suede. Aged since 2004, with its streaky laces, this design is Top of the Chops in sneaker culture.

We’ve asked the members of the community to upload a picture of the ultimate bacon/turkey bacon/plant bacon roll or sandwich you have made. We wanted to see the feast with you in an Air Max model and we were not disappointed! Although the raffle is now closed, we urge you to see the many creative takes on this by checking out #offspringhqSandwichroll
