Milton Bradley’s board game Candy Land has been a staple in American households for more than 70 years, growing up with generations of kids.
It has an incredibly interesting history, too: it was created by a schoolteacher who worked in a hospital during the polio epidemic of the 1940s and 50s.
The game was intended to keep sick kids busy and the colorful board and pieces surely brightened their days.
This Spring, to pay tribute to that classic board game, Reebok and Hasbro, which produces the game, have joined forces to release a fun collection of kicks to sweeten anyone’s rotation.
The collection features a Reebok Kamikaze in Men’s sizing, with Classic Leather and Club C models for kids of all ages.
The Kamikaze is splashed with a rainbow of colors on its iconic wavy panels, while pink Candy Land branding features on the tongue.
The CL Legacy retro running shoe has glittery toeboxes and delicious designs of candy and sprinkles on white leather overlays. Gingerbread tokens from the game boards appear on the heel counters.
Kids will love the Club C, with its brightly colored patent leather upper contrasting white midsoles and details.
Take a trip down memory lane with the Reebok x Candy Land collection, which releases in Men’s and Kids’ sizing on 4/21 at jdsports.com.
