Just when you thought the buzz surrounding the Kickstarter-funded RompHim had finally settled down, the folks over at Reebok have decided to one-up the Bro Romper with their own sporty version (with impressive speed, it’s worth noting). You know, for the dude who really wants to wear a short one-piece, but is also training for a half marathon, or just started getting into Crossfit but has yet to start bringing it up in every conversation yet.
Meet the ReeRomp, an athleisure-style romper strictly for the male species. The new item is made from Reebok’s ActivChill technology, which means it’s sweat-wicking and breathable. For $89, you can preorder the ReeRomp in white and it’ll arrive on your doorstep within about 30 days. Sadly, you can’t sport your snazzy new ReeRomp at that Memorial Day barbecue you plan to go to. But! You can definitely show it off during Fourth of July weekend.
This isn’t the first time Reebok has jumped on a viral fashion trend: In April, the athletic brand trolled the masses by offering a T-shirt drenched in real sweat (a Reebok employee’s own!) for $425, around the same time denim label PRPS’ mud-covered jeans (also $425) were making waves on the internet. So we have to give it up to Reebok for being so agile (heh) when it comes to tapping into the zeitgeist of all things weird in the clothing department. What could possibly be next? Yoga leggings with window knees? Running shorts with zipper down the rear? What a time.
