The Reebok Alter the Icon Series Takes On Its Third Remaster and Goes Full Street

Reebok continues its deep dive into audacious design with a third installment of the remastered Alter the Icon Series. After reviving its DMX lineage earlier this winter, this particular collection features using the power of music influencers and their keen sense of style to revamp versions of the 80s Classic Leather and Workout Plus silhouettes 

The innovation behind the Reebok Alter Icon Series is to rework its recognizable branding with vivid, unexpected features inspired by up and coming creatives in the hip-hop world in order to keep up with current streetwear trends.

As an homage to the season, the newest group of kicks offers redesigns sporting seasonal aesthetics for modern style and flare. Overall, the newest release offers 10 different models, each providing Reebok’s timeless and comfortable creations with changes to logo placement and other design aspects.

The latest Alter the Icons release also takes time to celebrate the younger generation of future icons, like 25-year old Atlanta-based rapper, MadeinTYO, who shares the story of how he paved his own path in a crowded music world. After all, the capsule collection is dubbed “alter the icons.” 

Our favorite redesign of the series, though, is the Classic Leather Ripple Altered, which flaunts bold colors and a few unique features. Some of the added assets include durable and thick boot laces, a rippled suede and stitched nylon upper, a unique rippled gum outsole, and a multitude of seasonal colorways for ultimate personalization.

The Workout Plus Ripple Altered is pretty snazzy, too. It features much of the same elements in regards to materials and inspiration that went into the Ripple Altered, with the addition of a durable high-abrasion rubber outsole and a few other design differences.

Both options are fantastic additions to your street sneaker collection and both are extremely affordable (as far as shoes go these days).

The Reebok Alter the Icons series launched November 15th and is now available at Reebok’s web store, with the Classic Leather Ripple styles retailing at $85, and the Workout Plus Ripple Altered styles at $90.

Love the shoes but at a loss as to what to wear with them? Why not check out the best brands to help you go full-on street style and embrace the fashion swerve.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
