The collaboration between Reebok and the designer Melody Ehsani has gained a lot of notoriety, because of the creative and stylish results that have been released. Today another Reebok and Melody Ehsani shoe collaboration is releasing. This time, the classic Reebok model that is getting the signature python print is the Classic Leather — officially titled the Reebok Classic x Melody Ehsani CL LTHR LUX ME.
The print is all-over and gradient, and it fades from light pink to blue, and then white and light pink again. The midsole and laces have the same print, but the colors are slightly more intense, which is a nice detail that doesn’t bother the concept too much. Besides the signature evil eye lace locks, there’s “Just Be Yourself” stitched on the toebox. The CL LTHR LUX ME features a classic gum bottom. We love how Melody Ehsani makes quite masculine shoes looks very girly, but mature, and how she always puts a woman-empowering message on her shoes. The fact that you just look down on your feet, and read a motivating, but simple sentence is not only a very different thing to do, but shows the purpose behind Ehsani’s designs. In fact, said Ehsani herself:
“When I was working on this shoe, I was doing a lot of internal work, struggling with trying to find answers to some of life’s big questions. I’ve done enough work up to this point to know that I just had to go deeper within myself. When I did, I developed a greater awareness of myself, understanding that the core of me is limitless.”
Sometimes you just have to be yourself, to achieve what you are dreaming about.

This style seamlessly continues Melody’s inspirational messaging with “Just be your yourself” described on the vamp. The CL LTHR LUX ME also features Melody’s signature take on the modern evil eye, which works to ward off all negativitySaid Melody Ehsani of the collaboration: “I’ve often heard musicians say that they see color when they hear certain songs. When I was working on this shoe, I was doing a lot of internal work, struggling with trying to find answers to some of life’s big questions. I’ve done enough work up to this point to know that I just had to go deeper within myself. When I did, I developed a greater awareness of myself, understanding that the core of me is limitless. We are concrete individuals in a physical world, however we come from an abstract source. The emotion of that limitlessness was best understood to me through the gradation of these colors that I applied to the signature python pattern on this particular shoe.”The CL LTHR LUX ME will retail for $149.99 and is currently available at www.melodyehsani.com and Melody’s LA store at 424 1/2 North Fairfax Ave, LA, CA 90036.On Friday 6/19, the style will be available widely at retailers including ExtraButter, Addict, Villa, ShoeCity and Reebok.com.
