Reebok x Basquiat Spring/Summer 2012
Legendary sneaker label, Reebok, have once again teamed up with the posthumous spirit and vibe of equally as legendary street artist Jean-Michel Basquiat for their 2012 Spring/Summer collection of classic kicks. In an ongoing tribute to the New York-born graffiti visionary and pioneer, Reebok have set their latest release of seriously dope illustrated sneakers upon the awaiting feet of the world.

The Reebok x Basquiat collection features some of the brands most iconic sneaks including the Reebok 'Pump Omni Lite' and the Reebok 'Hi', all splashed with some of Jean-Michel's most famous illustrations. As was his style, the shoes look like they've been scrawled with random scribbles and the words 'I AM BASQUIAT'. The kicks are available in a handful of vivid, statement worthy colours that belong in the wardrobe of any true-blooded sneaker freak and JMB fan alike.

The Reebok x Basquiat Spring/Summer 2012 collection is out now.

I'm sorry, but Basquiat would be rolling over in his grave.

I feel like it goes against so much of the commercial capitalism he was against (and ultimately made him successful post-death). Who gets the $$ from the collab? Is it a trust? Family? Very dubious.

There's no doubt money from the collab would go to his estate. Reebok have been doing this series for about four years and they would have definitely been sued by someone by now if it was dodge. If you look at the Basquiat website, you'll get an idea of how legit the whole operation would have been.

Oh, yeah I'm not accusing them of blatantly ripping his work off!! No doubt it's legit and a company like Reebok would protect their arses. Just I feel uncomfortable about this knowing Basquait's take on mass consumerism. But I guess he's certainly not the first artist to have his work mass-commodified.
