Great to see some of the real faces behind what has been an epic, epic few years for Reebok Classics. Consider that in 2010, the retro of the OG GL 6000 was a huge thing for us Reebokheads everywhere, and then take a moment to consider just how many on-point retros and immaculate collabs the department has been involved with since then. A collective round of applause is definitely deserved.

Any suggestions to the identity of this shoe gratefully received. —BokOne

The focus for many of us Bokheads/Retrobokheads has been away from the ’85 legend GL 6000 for a little while now, since a crazy number of makeups hit global stores from 2010 onwards. Hit the jump for more prattle, images and clicky-clicky-buy-buy. Read the rest of this entry
