Last night was fun. In addition to it being our birthday, it also marked the release of Extra Butter’s second collaboration with Reebok, the “Sheriff” Pump OXT. Check the video above for a quick look at the release event, and also check out our Facebook page for a photo roll of the night.
Almost three months ago, the guys at Extra Butter took you back in time with the Robin Hood: Men in Tights-inspired “Ahchoo” Reebok Pump AXT. With the same movie in mind, EB concocted a Pump OXT that’s definitely out-of-this-world: the “Sheriff” Pump OXT. The shoe, inspired by the movie’s final scenes, is releasing tonight (at 12 AM) at Extra Butter, and at 11 AM on their webstore tomorrow. EB also created some apparel just for the occasion. Both the black crewneck with a twill-print logo and the green Reebok snapback with the feather over the ear would look great with the “Sheriffs” or on their own. You can also pick up the clothing from Extra Butter tonight or their webstore tomorrow. Good luck in your hunt!
I previously reported that the upcoming “Sheriff” Reebok Pump OXT would release this Friday, March 23rd, at Extra Butter. However, the shoe will actually release the next day, Saturday, March 24th. Specifically, the “Sheriff” will be release at midnight at Extra Butter’s physical location (266 Merrick Road, Rockville Centre, NY) and at 11 AM on their website. Not to mention that some apparel that has yet to be revealed will be released with the shoe too! Stay tuned to Sole Camp for any further information on the “Sheriff” Pump OXT.
Butter’s back? You bet’cha. After teasing their next collaboration with Reebok for about a week now, Extra Butter has unveiled its new design: the “Sheriff” Pump OXT. While the first Extra Butter x Reebok collaboration, the “Ahchoo” Pump AXT, was inspired by Robin Hood: Men in Tights character Ahchoo’s outfit throughout the entire movie, this shoe specifically pays tribute to the last scene of the movie, where Ahchoo (Dave Chappelle) is crowned the new sheriff and exclaims: “A black sheriff? And why not? It worked in Blazing Saddles.” This colorup of the OXT uses durabuck and premium tumbled leather colored in Hunter green, black, and dark brown, as well as an arrow-like quill-printed mudguard. The “Sheriff” Reebok Pump OXT will release at Extra Butter next Friday, March 23rd, so get your money ready quick! In the meanwhile, you can watch the short film that Extra Butter created for the “Sheriff” Pump and check out more pictures of the shoe below. (more…)
Extra Butter and Reebok ended 2011 with a bang, as together, they released a Pump AXT collaboration inspired by Dave Chapelle’s character in Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Ahchoo. Well, for anyone who thought EB was done there, think again. Next up is a sneaker that takes inspiration from the same Mel Brooks movie, but in a different way. Perhaps the “Sheriff” moniker will help you guess the inspiration. For now, not much has surfaced online about this crazy design, and I will keep it that way. However, if you’re really itching for the full low-down on the “Sheriff”, you might want to think about buying the most recent issue of Sneaker Freaker. (Picture via Sneaker News)
