Reebok to Launch a DC Comics-Inspired Footwear Collection on Dec. 2, 2022

The apparel line includes Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, The Joker, and Harley Quinn.

On Nov. 18, 2022, Reebok and Warner Bros. Discovery Global Consumer Products (WBDGCP) announced a footwear and apparel collection with designs inspired by DC Comics’ iconic superheroes and villains. The collection will be available on Dec. 2, 2022, on Reebok.com/us/dc and retailers, including Finish Line, Hibbett Sports, and Amazon.

Six DC characters are getting the Reebok footwear treatment: three superheroes (Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman) and three supervillains (Lex Luthor, The Joker, and Harley Quinn). The design of each character-inspired shoe references not only their recognizable colors but also utilizes materials similar to the suits that each hero or villain wears. The shoes each fall within a line of Reebok’s shoes, including:

This is not the first time that Reebok has released DC Comics-inspired training shoes. A month after the release of the blockbuster film Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020, Reebok and WBDGCP released a Wonder Woman Nano X cross trainer.

The Wonder Woman Nano X2 includes a heel clip, Floatride Energy Form in the sole for better responsiveness, and a Flexweave upper knit for improved breathability. The Lex Luthor Workout Plus shoe features a low-cut design for mobility and freedom of motion and an EVA foam midsole for shock absorption.

The Batman LX2200s also feature an EVA midsole as well as a leather upper with suede overlays and textile underlays. The Joker Club C 85s features a leather upper and a removable EVA foam sockliner to accommodate orthotics. It also has a die-cut EVA midsole for lightweight cushioning.

The Superman Shaq Attaqs are slip-on with a customizable fit and a synthetic upper. Finally, the Harley Quinn Freestyle Hi’s are more for athleisure. The EVA midsole provides shock support, and the mid-cut design with an ankle strap closure provides enhanced ankle support.
