Last year, Reebok and Hasbro released their first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers shoe collection, which featured stylish designs for each of the team’s five original Rangers. Now Reebok and Hasbro are back with the second Mighty Morphin Power Rangers collection, and this time the designs spotlight some of the series’ biggest villains. The line features three different shoes based on Lord Zedd (Answer IV Lord Zedd), Rita Repulsa (Instapump Fury Rita Repulsa), and Rito Revolto (Hurrikaze II Low Rito Revolto), and whichever one you end up rocking, people will know exactly which villain is your favorite. There are also five garments in the second wave, and all of them can be pre-ordered here starting March 25. You can check out the new additions up close from the next slide, and you can find the official descriptions below.
• Instapump Fury Rita Repulsa ($200 | GW0782) – This Instapump Fury features all of Rita Repulsa’s signature markings, from the icon on the pump ball that depicts Rita’s staff, to the stripes on the tongue, which resemble the Rita headband. Rita’s influence even seeps into the materials with pony hair on the heel to mimic Rita’s headgear.
• Hurrikaze II Low Rito Revolto ($140 | GY5928) – The upper of this Kamikaze II Low makes the shoe instantly recognizable as a Rito Revolto, as the neutral upper represents Rito’s bones and the camouflage application on the medial side in suede resembles Rito’s outfit. Other warnings that this shoe is for bad guys only is that the sneaker’s tongue features the Evil Space Alien legend on the right side and the “Danger Ranger” skull and crossbones on the left side.
• Lord Zedd Response IV ($170 | GZ6897) – Lord Zedd takes this Response IV back with a red, wavy upper that resembles Lord Zedd’s body, silver overlays that nod to Lord Zedd’s armor, and a blue tube along the lateral side that mimics that of Lord Zedd tubes. The villain even appears on the outsole where Iverson’s face would typically be on this classic basketball silhouette.
Each shoe also features an insole with the character’s iconic moments or classic design elements. For example, Lord Zedd’s insole features images of ingredients from Rita Repulsa’s love potion that she used on Lord Zedd during the show. As with the first wave, each shoe will also feature unique packaging, including Rita’s Moon Dumpster box and Lord Zedd’s Angel Grove Community Center-inspired box.
You can also find a hoodie inspired by the transformation of the Megazord, a long sleeve t-shirt that features the Green Ranger, and three t-shirts that feature the heroes and villains of the franchise in a retro arcade style.
You can pre-order the entire collection here starting March 25, and you can see more images on the next slide.
