USA only Classic Leather (White/Black/Steel)

Things are getting a little bit strange here at Retrobok HQ, featuring 2 makeups of the Reebok Classic in a single day – but if I see something worthy of posting, then so be it —

Personally I think this is one of the finest – and most considered – treatments I’ve ever seen to the Classic ; sticking with pure Whites and filling the midsole completely with Black. I refer to shoes like this as ‘Stormtrooper’ shoes for obvious reasons and personally I love them, because they lower the perceptible height of a shoe making for a more elegant appearance. Also because it’s not done very often. A similiar example is a pair of Nike Lunar Spiders which I own (shown below in another first for Retrobok – shock horror… featuring a non-Reebok shoe) —

But back to the Classic, and fortunately the large ‘Reebok’ on the heel-counter is kept in white or could have been overwhelming —

Men's Classic Leather Shoes J94393

These also have a sister shoe, in very striking Black/Laser Red, but surprisingly neither are identified by anything more than ‘Reebok Classic’ on Reeboks’ own official US Website.

This is some nice work by Reebok USA – and there is a pleasing quality to these. Reebok USA ~BokOne
