Teyana Taylor Teamed Up with Reebok to Show Off the Ultimate Throwback Sneakers
She teamed up with Reebok to prove everything that's old can be fresh and new again.
Teyana Taylor (25-year-old dancer and mother of 1-year-old Iman) made a big splash in pop culture when she slayed in Kanye West's "Fade" music video, captivating everyone with her super-sexy moves and insanely fit body. (Which, BTW, she says she scored without doing any hardcore workouts.) Taylor rode the post-VMA buzz, and launched a red hot sneaker collab with Reebok back in October, reminding everyone that she's secretly a sneaker design genius (you know, in addition to being a pro dancer, judge for America's Best Dance Crew, and recording artist). Shortly after, she announced the launch of her fitness program website, Fade2Fit, to spread her hot body secrets.
The latest from Taylor, however, is less sex appeal and more bubblegum retro. Reebok announced in January that Taylor is the new face of their classic '80s-era sneaker, the Freestyle, in celebration of its 25th anniversary. Just in time for spring, the brand's breaking out the Freestyle "Color Bomb" Pack, including two new sneaks in hella bright colors Mineral Mist and Pink Craze.
But Teyana's love for the shoe goes wayyy back to pre-Fade times: "I was 4 and I just knew I loved them, I wouldn't take them off," said Taylor in a Reebok press release. "Freestyles were all I wanted to wear growing up, so it feels like everything's come full circle with this partnership."
