All day every day, we here at JD Sports headquarters talk about “fire kicks” or “hot releases.”
Well judging by Reebok’s latest collaboration, they’re taking that very seriously, joining forces with Hot Ones for an insane mash-up that’s certain to get you hot under the collar.
Y’all know the show, right? Hot Ones sees host Sean Evans interviewing a special celebrity guest while they eat 10 wings, each with a progressively hotter hot sauce.
Big names like Ja Rule, Rob Gronkowski, RZA, Tony Hawk, Kevin Durant, A$AP Ferg, Desus & Mero and more have braved the fire, with varying levels of success.
Now Reebok is bringing the heat to your feet and paying tribute to the show that changed the interview format forever with two tasty models for any palate.
The first course is the Reebok x Hot Ones Question Mid, an iconic silhouette in its own right, that comes dressed in scorching red tones that nod to the show’s ‘The Last Dab Apollo’ sauce. Bright yellow outsoles and Hot Ones branding on the heels, tongue and sockliner complete the look.
Overheating and need to cool down? There’s a shoe for that, too. The Reebok Classic Leather Legacy comes to life in a chill colorway that feels like a gulp of cold water or milk, soothing the fire on those tastebuds or in the sneaker rotation. Featuring water splash designs and an icy outsole, this is the perfect counterpart to the blazing hot Question Mid.
The premium packaging even includes tissue paper that you can cut out and wear as a bib, to save that ‘fit from any stray sauces you might encounter.
Want a closer look at the Question Mid? We hit hit up a couple of Philadelphia sneakerheads and a former Hot Ones contestant to see what they thought about the upcoming release. Check out their impressions here.
