Ever since I introduced the Reebok and Kool-Aid collaboration, people have been intrigued and have shared their speculations on how the scent-infused sockliners would be like. Trust me, I myself wasn’t too sure about it which is why I withheld my thoughts on the sneakers for a little while. Even after I featured the entire Reebok-Koolaid collection which includes shirts, hoodies and shirts. BTW, the clothing and accessories line are not scent-infused :) .
Anyhoo, I’ve been holding on to a size 11 pair of the White/Cherry sneakers for a week now. Posting of that was temporarily disrupted due to the servers issues early this week. After reading a few posts this morning linking to what I’ve written I’ve decided to share my thoughts now instead of waiting ’till next week. Information on how to win this pair after the fold as well.

I actually like the white/color combination pair, aesthetic wise. I agreed with my husband when he said it has an old school vibe to it. Just like the classic Reebok sneakers, except this time it has the kool-aid smile, and brand logo on the back and bottom of the shoe. I haven’t seen the colored one up-close and personal but I think if you’re a Man, the red, orange and green pairs would be more appropriate for your age. Leave the rest to the kids. If the collection was available for Women, I’d probably go for the bright colors. I happen to own a pair of their classic pink and white combo.
As for the sweet smell, you don’t have to worry about your dogs sniffing it. The fruity flavor is actually controlled inside the shoes. I had to take the liner out to smell the cherry scent. Your favorite kool-aid flavor is not going to be haunting you wherever you are whenever you have this on. Having said that, I couldn’t really say if that would change if someone is actually wearing it. If the smell would suddenly envelope your whole surroundings when your sole is pushing down on the liner or if you’re sweating. But then again, no one would wear this kind of shoes when playing sports. Maybe for walking but if your feet sweats like crazy when doing that activity, then you have bigger problems. Time to see the Doctor. And if you have a dog, maybe you should train her/him not to chew on your shoes? Or better yet, store your shoes where your dog can’t reach? Just a thought, heh!
OK, as far as the contest go, like I said, this is size 11. That was the only size available after the collection launched early this month. Sorry. So if you are size 11 and you want this Cherry flavored Reebok-Kool-aid sneakers, Leave your name in the comment box, with a valid e-mail address letting me know you want it. Win it for you or give it to someone who wears size 11 shoes. Contest ends on the 29th. I will randomly select the winner and announced the name on March 1st. That’s it. As far as I was informed, the Reebok-Koolaid collection is limited edition. I’m hoping to get my son a pair before it completely disappears. I might have to wait ’till April when the lime, lemonade and orange is launched. Good Luck!
