1971 — R400, R420 and an early collab?!

Another fantastic advert scan courtesy of David Gumbley, back in 1971 when UK decimilisation had just taken place, and Reebok appeared to only give code numbers to their shoes. Fortunately, the R420 later gained a more catchy name, being titled Scirocco. Also great to see the formative REEBOK wordmark, and pre-Starcrest R> decal imprinted on the shoes. If you’ve got a keen eye, could this have been Reeboks’ first collaboration? Reebok X Lawrence Sports, in todays terms 🙂 Thanks again to David. ~BokOne

Footnote – Elizabeth messaged Retrobok with the following photo of a pair of NOS (new old stock) R420’s which look amazing:
