CL — Solebox X Reebok
With one of the boldest panelling treatments I’ve seen on the CL this year, these Solebox special editions are causing a bit of a stir — not least with criticism that it’s a similiar treatment to their 2006 New Balance 1500’s (shown below/next image). Personally, I think that’s unfair – if anything it’s a signature design detail, and one perhaps the Solebox brothers were about 7 years ahead on.
The Classic Leather features black leather at the back, red suede at the front – which really makes things pop, no midsole fussiness and a clean Lux upper. The panelling choice is far nicer than some recent results, and lends an almost Spats shoe appearance to them. No release date just yet, but keep your eyes on Solebox —BokOne
