Emporio Armani and Reebok, luxury dress shoes Featured

Sports and fashion with Emporio Armani and EA7
by 25 January 2010

Sports and glamour are perfectly combined in the Emporio Armani/Reebok collection, and in the EA7/Reebok collection, both for the fall/winter 2010 season. The Emporio Armani/Reebok collection features four athletic footwear styles for men and women. The first is "Mega Chic", an unusual luxury dress sneaker which brings high technology into partnership with hand crafting. This lace-up sneaker has a textured leather upper and a rubber injected hand-made leather sole, with shock-absorbing DMX Mega-tech heel. This makes it both comfortable and attractive, a black contemporary dress style shoe with retro sneaker design. Not surprisingly, the colour is black, which contrasts with the colour in the tech heel.

"Pump Mega" is a techno sneaker combining Reebok technology with Emporio Armani fashion design. "Pump Vintage" was inspired by a period outline, and its two-tone rubber sole includes the HexRide cushioning system based on hexagonal cells. The available colours for this piece are white, black and black-blue. The uinisex "VIntage Runner" features 1990 style, with some highly contemporary touches.

The EA7-Reebok footwear collection combines the dynamic, sporty lines of EA7 with Reebok's high-performance technology. "Pump Runner 7" is a luxury performance shoe, with reflective technology in the toe-cap partially concealed by the technical mesh upper. Fashion features include colour fading and gloss printing. It is available in white-grey-yellow, and black-fluorite yellow-red, for men and women. "The Runner 7" has a clean profile, giving it a stylish lifestyle image.

The EA7/Reebok Apparel collection brings the sport and fashion concept into garments that can be combined with the footwear for a confident and total look. Luxury fabrics from the Emporio Armani fashion world are enhanced by cutting-edge Reebok technology to optimize comfort, fit and performance. The fashion detailing is inspired by crocodile skin, which changes as the fabric moves, creating a dynamic visual effect. Colours for men are based on black, misty grey and white, with fashion tones such as fluorite yellow. Playdry is a moisture management technology system that banishes excessive perspiration. Long-sleeve technical tops have 2-way front zips, and elbow articulation. Fitness fleece hoodies have stand-up collar and built-in hood, with kangaroo front pockets and branding on the left arm.

For women, there are relaxed-fit harem pants with asymmetrically-fastening hooded tops, providing a flattering look, slim on the hips, baggy around the ankles. Women's running wear features soft, supple fabric, eliminating chafing by means of SmoothFit technology low-friction inner surfaces.
