Interview — Josh Yucius, Associate Product Manager, Reebok Classics

joshy

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.

Pump Graphlite – Version 2, OG 1994 catalogue scans

Following up from my previous post, attempting to identify a Graphlite Pump shoe I’d not seen before, which was sought after by our friend László in Hungary, I got a great email from Reebok Classics themselves who appear to have their own archivist – amazing news! Not only might this help us Retrobok fans identify OG shoe lines, but also underlines Reeboks’ desire to track their product history, something I believe fell by the wayside during various stages of the companys’ history.

1994 Pump Graphlite… or are they?

Retrobok recently received an email from László in Hungary, who’s been trying to discover the accurate name for the Pump Graphlites he bought back in 1994. Studying the catalogue scan he sent me (above), as well as the Retrobok Archives, and it remains a bit of a mystery… The catalogue itself clearly states ‘Pump Graphlite’ – perhaps this was a revised version of the shoe, with its’ outer midsole removed fully revealing the graphlite Arc Bridge in all its glory? Any suggestions to the identity of this shoe gratefully received.  —BokOne
