Fell Runner – inspiration for the CL Leather Trail?

I won’t divulge full details, but I had an interesting email recently from a designer at Reebok who stated the recent CL Trailssoles were inspired by the Fell Runner – a shoe I’ve just added into the 80’s Wall Of Fame. I’m unsure of the Fell Runners’ exact release date (and hope somebody can confirm this) but their similiarity to the World Bests upper design suggests they appeared around 1987.

I’ve stolen the above Black/Yellow/Grey Fell Runner pictures from my friend DIXY (hope you don’t mind mate) and Googling as ever reveals pictures from odd places – here’s another in a Blue/Red/Cream colourway –
