Give Me Your Classics and I’ll Show You The Future

Reebok Classics recently commissioned this short film, heralding the influence of Reebok classic footwear on the UK’s past, present, and looking forwards to the future. It apparently accompanies a lookbook (which I’ve heard rumours of, and may have used Retrobok as a resouce) and was a core part of this launch event earlier this month.

Ventilator Hi (Sample)

$_57 (2)

Whoah. I don’t quite know what to make of these, let alone say about them. Currently on eBay, this insane pair of Vents has some very interesting details – most notably the ankle wrap which emulates the black wrap-over sections on the lower upper (is ‘lower upper’ a term? I dunno). There’s so much going on here it’s almost hard to make sense of it all – like an OTT 90’s B-Baller design but on a lightweight runner… I think they’re a love-em-or-hate-em thing here, people. We’ll have to wait and see if and when Reebok Classics release these to the general public. Thanks to my friend Piotr for the info.

GL 6000 Mid

6000mid

Well, here they are — spotted back in January by BokTwo the GL 6000 Mid is now available from Reebok UK and is a pretty tasty job by Reebok Classics indeed. Featuring new collar panelling, ingress/egress straps, hiking boot-style metal lace loops and some extra stitching details (notice the X on the sidewrap) these are finished with a nice metallic-effect material on the uppers. The UK is heading into Autumn now, so perhaps it’s the perfect time to pick up a pair 😀 Reebok (UK) —BokOne

Reebok Classics were sweet enough to send me a pair of these super-bright ‘Swag’ orange Infernos recently, so I thought it’d be fair to post a quick review of them. Read the rest of this entry

OG ‘Wild Runner Two’ – Photos & info

Retrobok visitor Ian Goodfellow sent me some great photos of his own OG Wild Runner Twos from the mid-80’s. His have clearly been well used, but are still in impressive condition for a 27-year-old shoe. (continue reading after the jump) Read the rest of this entry
