4 new GL 6000 colourways


Some very very nice variations on the re-issued GL 6000, which has had a near-overwhelming number of colourways released in the last year or so. 1st colourway (above) is in a very summery Blue/Yellow – I’m aware that not everyone will be feeling these so much, but they remind me of original 80’s Royales, *grin*.

BB series originals detailed at Sole Collector forum

 


Whilst researching for the forthcoming Wall Of Fame, I came across an interesting post detailing the BB series of Reebok Basketball shoes – including the 4600, 5600, 6600, 7600 ‘Alien Stompers’, and rarer 4600 II, 5000 and 5900. It seems within even the lesser-know models there is a great deal of history.

Reebok roll out Vintage-treatment runners


Ex-O-Fit, Workout Plus and Classics get the (Nike inspired) Vintage treatment. Aged midsoles, a retro ‘Reebok’ side window (subtle though it is), and even exposed foam on the uppers’ edging. I’d go for a pair of Ex-O-Fits’ personally, to savour the retro treatment Reebok have attempted. Must find an image of the Vintage boxing also… Available over at Crooked Tongues, and more pics at Hypebeast.
