Reebok and New York label Pyer Moss announce plans for a second collaborative shoe, this time offered in jet black. Called the DMX Fusion Experiment, the unisex shoe takes its cues from Reebok’s DMX Run 10. Designed by Pyer Moss creative lead Kerby Jean-Raymond, the shoe features a leather and mesh upper and is marked by its unique lacing system, which can be customized by the wearer.
On Twitter, Moss pushed back on an accusation that his Reebok shoe is a copy of Kanye West’s Yeezy 500 shoe. Moss wrote, “There’s only a handful of [people of color] navigating this non-inclusive footwear space. I wouldn’t let minor similarities in product force ill speech out of me about those people. There’s space for all of us. But my shoe was designed first. :)”
He added in a second Tweet, “In addition, the DMX Fusion was announced last February  the mudrat was first seen in December . Either way, my checks say adidas on them. We got love.”
Reebok’s DMX Fusion is a new shoe modeled off of the brand’s DMX Run 10, a 20-year-old performance shoe that was brought back as a lifestyle shoe in 2017.
The debut version of Reebok’s shoe with Pyer Moss’s was first shown on the label’s February 2018 runway and hit retail a month later in March.
This is a highly-coveted shoe and you can sign up for up-to-the-minute info on reebok.com. The shoe will drop on June 15th.
