Inspired short promo featuring none other than co-founder Joe Foster himself, and reflecting on the Aztecs’ impact and heritage, as the retro is released in the UK today. Thanks to my contact Ritchie for the heads up on this!
I don’t believe I’ve sufficiently stated just how great a job Reebok have done with retro’ing the Aztec; hand-made and with authentic materials, it’s a truly great shoe fully deserving of its reputation. -BokOne
Life has been zooming by recently, so I’ve not had much time to keep track of the Aztec OG’s release patterns, but it appears to be available in the UK on 22nd (this coming Saturday) from Oi Polloi, which have shops in both London, Manchester, and the cyberspacewebs.
They’ve got a very nicely handcrafted webpage just for the shoe too, so for those of you in the UK and Europe who’ve been keeping an eye out for these, now’s your chance 😉 Oi Polloi (UK) – Available 00.01 BST on 22.08.15 —BokOne
Looking away from the footwear for a brief moment, and here’s a very fresh Varsity Jacket for Fall/Winter 2015 from Paris-based Maison Kitsuné ; a record label founded in 2002 by a French and Japanese duo. This duo appear to have worked on Varsity Jackets before, but it’s nice to see a Reebok collab in this case. I’m not seeing store availability just yet, however – but keep your eyes peeled and click on for more images. —BokOne Read the rest of this entry

With the retro of the
1979 1978 Aztec released today, I got in touch with David Foster (his Father Joe and Uncle Jeff started Reebok from the ashes of the J.W. Fosters company in 1958) to ask his memories of the shoe, and it’s success. David not only confirms the original release year (!!), the impact this shoe had on Reebok sales and success, but also the model of the first Reebok Womens shoe. Read on!
