This collaboration draws inspiration from one of Mother Nature’s most intriguing creations, salmon. This majestic animal’s instinct for survival, teamed with the incredible journey it undertakes during its lifetime, has seen it surrounded by a rich web of myth and folklore around the world.
Looking at the END x Reebok Insta Pump Fury Black Salmon we see that the majority of the shoe comes covered in a premium black embossed suede to resemble the overlapping design of fish scales. A ballistic nylon cage in coordinating black delivers the innovative technology that saw the silhouette become a legend. Highlights arrive in the form of the distinctive pink tone of the salmon’s flesh, sitting as a flash to the outsole along with a premium suede to the heel panel. The pink tone extends to the neoprene boot within, mimicking the flesh’s concealment beneath the sleek scaled surface.
The dark textured upper stands atop a speckled midsole, its subtle tonalities a reference to the sparkling waters the salmon calls home. Woven heel pulls are completed with END branding, while Reebok branding is seen on the tongue and heel.
