NPC Vintage, nubuck


The NPC or Newport Classic is a shoe I need to understand more: it qualifies as a true Retrobok shoe, hailing from Reeboks’ most succesful period in the 80’s, yet leaves me cold. Was it an Adidas or Puma imitation? Was it a Terrace Shoe? And which Newport – UK or US – inspired its name? These 3 Vintage releases are available now from UK based Oki-Ni. Would be interesting to hear your thoughts on the NPC. —BokOne

  1. I think it looks like the stan smith adidas, a little like the puma basket to, but seeing lots of brands now have this type of shoe in their catalouge.
