Reebok announced the moves alongside its partnership with Hasbro and will debut its second Reebok x Power Rangers collection, following the first drop that was released in June 2021 and was inspired by the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series from the 90s. Where the first line focused more on the Power Rangers themselves — featuring shoes designed after the Red Ranger, Black Ranger, Blue Ranger, Pink Ranger, Yellow Ranger and Megazord — this line will focus more on the villains of the series.

For this new collection, Reebok is drawing inspiration from fan-favorite villains Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, and Rito Revolto, all of whom will be getting their own custom sneaker. Highlights of the second Reebok x Power Rangers line include:

  • Instapump Fury Rita Repulsa ($200 | GW0782) – This Instapump Fury features all of Rita Repulsa’s signature markings from the icon on the pump ball which represents Rita’s staff, to the bands on the tongue, which resemble Rita’s headband. Rita’s influence even seeps into the materials with pony hair featured on the heel cup to emulate Rita’s headware.
  • Hurrikaze II Low Rito Revolto ($140 | GY5928) – The upper of this Kamikaze II Low makes the shoe instantly recognizable as Rito Revolto as the neutral upper represents Rito’s bones and the camo application on the medial side suede resembles Rito’s outfit. Other warnings that this shoe is for villains only is that the sneaker’s tongue includes the Evil Space Alien callout on the right side and the “Danger Ranger” skull and crossbones on the left side.
  • Answer IV Lord Zedd ($170 | GZ6897) – Lord Zedd takes over this Answer IV with a red, rippled upper that resembles Lord Zedd’s body, silver overlays that nod to Lord Zedd’s armor and a blue tube along the lateral side which mimics Lord Zedd’s tubes. The villain even shows up on the outsole where Iverson’s face would typically be on this classic basketball silhouette.

Similar to their last collaboration, each footwear silhouette will include its own sockliner that features various signature moments or features of each character the shoe is inspired for. The Answer IV Lord Zedd’s, for example, will incorporate images of the ingredients in Rita Repulsa’s love potion that she used on Lord Zedd. Each shoe will also come housed in its own specialized packaging unique to its character, including the “Rita’s Moon Dumpster” box all the way to Lord Zedd’s box, which is inspired by the Angel Grove Community Center from the series.

Alongside the shoes, Reebok will also be releasing five pieces of apparel, including a hoodie, long sleeve tee, and three t-shirts. The hoodie will be inspired by the Megazord’s transformation including a hand-drawn Megazaord emblem. The long sleeve tee will have the Green Ranger on it and feature several details of his character, while the three t-shirts will be styled after retro arcade graphics and showcase various heroes and villains of the Power Rangers franchise.
