More 80’s Catalogue scan additions!

showcase

I’m very happy to announce further additions to the burgeoning Media section with a superb set of scans of late 80’s Reebok Catalogues, Flyers and Brochures. Added are 3 x 1988 mini-catalogues (covers shown above), mini leaflets for the 1986 RTP, Rugged Walker, and later Step Trainer Pro, and a 1990 mini-brochure for the Pump range. Read on for more. 

Huge thanks to our new and passionate contributor TheReebokKid for scanning a selection of his collection for addition here on Retrobok. He tells me there is more to come….

You can view the full scans on the 80’s Media Page but I thought I’d show some excerpts of the material below, starting with my favourite 2 images showcasing the ’88 Mens and Womens Runners —

For the more serious runner in ’88, Reebok had a bit of a colour and city-name theme going on with the Paris Racer as well as the Cologne Sprint and Cologne Wedge. Alongside, the familiar PB Racer and PB800

We also see the colour schemes continue with the outdoor range featuring Fjellrunner, Wild Runner Two, and X-C Spike (X-C meaning Cross Country incidentally). Notice the outsole of the Fjellrunner (left in the image below) – the inspiration for the outsole on the recent CL Trail

The extent of the Rugged Walker range is revealed further too, and once proferred at least 7 makeups of the Low edition, and 2 in the Mid (not all shown below please note). I’m particularly liking the Race Walker, in striking Black, White and Red on the right hand side below —

Contributor TheReebokKid tells me that the RTP Tennis shoe was his first and favourite Retrobok, quite an advanced shoe from what we can see below —

With huge thanks again to TheReebokKid. —BokOne
