Alien Stomper Mid ‘Bishop’ — coming soon

reebok-alien-stomper-retro-2016-01

I’ll admit that even at Retrobok, I’m still unclear as to whether Reebok *officially* released the White/Red/Grey makeup of the ‘Alien Stomper’ shoes worn by Ripley and Bishop in the legendary 1986 movie ‘Aliens’.  Hit the jump for more images, store links and space talk.  Read the rest of this entry

World Best ‘OG pack’

wb1.JPG

Here’s something that should put a smile on a few ‘bokheads faces. I’m super happy to see Reebok Classics fully retro the World Best ; a shoe that moved thinking away from the familiar sidestripes formula and whose outsole was reused on the recent ‘new retro’ GL 1500. Hit the jump for more images, prattle and links.  Read the rest of this entry

Garbstore X Reebok Classics @Atmos Japan

a
Woah. Londons’ boutique fashion store ‘Garbstore’ has certainly been busy; applying their ‘outside-in’ treatment to more Classics shoes, with some more unexpected results that may divide opinion (as I found out after posting my Garbstore x Pump Running Dual VNT’s; and to be honest that was a very curious shoe).

Hit the jump to see Garbstores’ treatments of the OG Aztec, ACT 600 and Phase I Pro, and for all the Atmos store links you could ever need. —BokOne  Read the rest of this entry

Pickup — Reebok Bolton X Distinct Life “Distinct Views”

distinct-life-reebok-bolton-1

Not often you can lump the cities of Bolton and Detroit in the same sentence, even though both gave birth to legendary cultural icons (Reebok and Techno – both of which happen to very close to my own heart). You’ll also have to excuse lack of my own photos, spare time is in short supply at the moment. Read on for more images and bluster…. Read the rest of this entry

24 Kilates x Reebok LX8500 “Bangkok”

Sweet, sweet promo for Barcelonas’ 24 Kilates take on the venerable 1985 LX 8500 – a colourway which certainly captures the bright colours and vibrancy of Bangkok with a shoe inspired by the cities own Tuk Tuks.

I’m seeing slightly mixed messages about release dates ; so let’s say from today (12th March) most likely from 24 Kilates themselves, and a few days later from other boutique/certified network stores. Either way, I’d jump in and punch any available orders to make sure not to miss them. Hit the jump for more photos from the shoot, and store links. —BokOne

ACT 600 ’85

Sick. Things don’t get much more Retrobok than this. With the clean white Tennis sneaker thing going on at the moment at least here in Oz, where I’m keenly awaiting a pair of the Club C 85 Vintages), I’m so pleased that Reebok Classics have re-‘served’ (ugh) this superb vintage shoe. Read on for more images, original 1985 advert and store links. Read the rest of this entry
