Reebok & atmos & Jun Watanabe & Tamiya

Following on from his 2011 team effort with Reebok and Tokyo-based sneaker store atmos, Japanese art director Jun Watanabe has once again collaborated on the Insta Pump Fury silhoutte. This time, however, the collaboration has extended to include a colour coordinated Tamiya Hornet radio controlled car...

The shoe colourway itself references the previous collaboration, contrasting white and black dots with a vignette of bright pink and purple. And again, as with the first shoe, the pull tabs (front and back) are printed with Watanabe's trademark Bottle Head character (a life-size rendering of which can be seen below).

Watanabe has long since referenced Tamiya motifs in his work, so the RC collaboration seems to be a very well suited alliance. Here at Art & Sole we've always loved the graphic design of Tamiya, and the 'Tamiya Hornet by Jun Watanabe' packaging certainly doesn't disappoint. More detailed pics of both the sneakers and the car can be seen below

The release date for both the shoes and the car will be mid-May, and they will be available through the Eproze online store
