Reebok Timetanium: Limited release


Passed on in good faith.

Reebok is about to announce their latest custom designed sneaker. The shoe's exclusive design was developed by a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Professor. John Maeda’s is a visual artist, graphic designer, and computer scientist at the Media Lab and has brought together the contrasting worlds of art and science in a unique sneaker design called the Reebok Timetanium. Based on the Reebok Ventilator, the exterior of Timetanium, features the original graphics by Maeda, created from the original mathematical algorithms and computer codes. The interior lining of the Timetanium reflects the complexity of this process, with the original, hand-written calculations by Maeda, printed on.

There are only 100 pairs of the Reebok Timetanium being produced, and these will be available to purchase on November 13th through the Reebok Custom page , for only $ (US)150. You can checkout the video on YouTube.
