Attention, DC Comics fans. You have plenty of Batman shirts and Wonder Woman backpacks. It’s time to turn your love of the world’s greatest superheroes downward — to your feet. The folks at Reebok have joined forces with DC for a new line of footwear, celebrating the company’s most famous heroes and villains. The DC x Reebok Collection will be available online, and retailers including Finish Line, Hibbett Sports, and Amazon, all beginning December 2.
DC fans are invited to choose their side of the battle with a range of lifestyle and performance super sneakers. Characters that are included in this collection include Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor, the Joker, and Harley Quinn. (What, no Flash?? Not even running shoes?) Drawing visual inspiration from these characters, each piece of footwear uses materials that represent the iconic costumes each character wears.

One of the biggest superheroes of all time takes over Reebok’s larger-than-life sneaker, the Shaq Attaq. Inspired by the Man of Steel himself, this version of the shoe pays homage to some of Superman’s most crucial superpowers. There is translucent hardware on the shoe that references his x-ray vision, and ice outsole signifying his cold breath. Available in unisex sizing from 5.5 – 13. There is also a Classic Leather inspired by Superman available in kids sizing. ($180).
The reflective Bat emblem on the tongue of this LX2200 instantly gives away the Batman inspiration of this refreshed Reebok OG running silhouette. The sneaker embodies Batman’s impressive batsuit through several details including the foam molded synthetics and debossing on the upper which represent the batsuit’s molded and distressed armor, respectively. Available in unisex sizing from 2.5 – 12. ($110).
Club C 85/Joker
The Joker brings chaos to the Club C 85. The inside of the shoe is covered with graphics referencing his ear-piercing laughter. And the tear-away pieces of fabric on the upper represent the many devious layers of his personality. Further allowing the wearer to exemplify The Joker’s personality, the tongue features a hidden joker that one can remove and use as their calling card. Available in unisex sizing from 2.5 – 12. ($110).
Nano X2/Wonder Woman
Wonder Woman’s impressive armor dictates the design of this version of Reebok’s most versatile training shoe yet, the Nano X2. The upper of the shoes incorporate a reflective light creating a similar effect to Wonder Woman’s deflecting bracelets and the rest of her suit’s legendary construction appears on various leather and metal accents. They gifted the wearer with an extra set of reflective laces that are emblematic of Wonder Woman’s signature lasso of truth. Available in unisex sizes 4 – 13. ($150).
Freestyle Hi/Harley Quinn
The formidable Harley Quinn inspires one of Reebok’s most iconic female silhouettes, the Freestyle Hi. The upper includes graphics that reference a range of her accessories from her legendary mallets to her roller skates. Bleeding from the heel to the white upper is a deep blue, very similar to the design of her favorite shirt. Available in women’s sizes 2.5 – 8.5. ($100).
Workout Plus/Lex Luthor
This glow-in-the-dark version of the Workout Plus brings Lex Luthor’s toxic kryptonite suit to sneakers. From the glowing outsole to the cracked, glow-in-the-dark edges on the upper, the shoe is sure to make the wearer feel invincible. They finished the silhouette off with a lace dubrae ring that mimics the super villain’s powerful green kryptonite ring. Available in unisex sizes 2 – 14. ($100).
