Fifth in this brilliant series; and we stay in Japan at the atmos store in Shinjuku, Tokyo. -BokOne
We take you behind the scenes of the world’s finest sneaker retailers, away from the shop floor, into the world of the Stockboy. He’s the guy (or girl) who’s got the lowdown on the latest release, who still gets the buzz from a fresh delivery and who lives an inspirational life outside of the day to day. In episode 5 of this series, in line with the release of their interpretations of the reworked Phase One Pro, Reebok and atmos introduce us to 26-year-old Takumi Ueda
Feauturing an asymetrical carbon fiber arch bridge from the Pump Fury, space-age details, and very very 90’s colourway and patterns on the upper; the 90’s semi-mid Graphlite Pro cross trainer has appeared out of nowhere onto European Reebok websites. This thing is insane. Thanks to Bobby ‘Necro’ Hall for the spot.-BokOne
Following my London TC unboxing post, 2 more colourways of the ultra-light 1983 road racer have appeared in stores. The first of which makes it look near-identical to the OG Paris Runner – sure, both France and the United Kingdom have flags featuring Red, White and Blue but I can’t help loving the crossover feeling here! Hit the jump for the 2nd tidy colourway and store links. —BokOne Read the rest of this entry
Another hilarious tongue-in-cheek video from Palace Skateboards, this time featuring Jonah Hill during a ‘genuine’ visit to their London store. Releasing yesterday (apologies for slight delay posting this), Palace have collab’d with Reebok Classic on the Classic Leather in 2 makeups, and the Club C in 3 makeups. Hit the jump to see images of those, and/or visit Palace like Jonah did. —’BokeOne’ 😉
Uh huh. I see what you’ve done there 😮 Pick yours up at TBDress today! Or perhaps don’t. —BokOne
The 1983 Reebok London is a bit of a rarety within the current release of retros’ from Reebok Classic, primarily as it was a true road-race shoe back in the day. It also sits alongside last years release of the Aztec OG in this regard; especially when you experience the shoes side-by-side each having a lightness and thinness that even modern Nike runners would find hard to match.
Beyond this, the London TC has a parallel with recent Kendrick Lamar collabs that may surprise you. Hit the jump for more macros and eulogizing… Read the rest of this entry
Fourth in the series of shorts from Reebok Classic, telling the stories of stockboys at Reebok Certified Network stores around the world. -BokOne
We take you behind the scenes of the world’s finest sneaker retailers, away from the shop floor, into the world of the Stockboy. He’s the guy (or girl) who’s got the lowdown on the latest release, who still gets the buzz from a fresh delivery and who lives an inspirational life outside of the day to day. In episode 4 of this series, in line with the release of their interpretations of the reworked Phase One Pros, Reebok and mita sneakers introduce us to 27-year-old Kazushige Nakamura.
This week I was fortunate to pick up the 2016 retro of the lightweight 1988 World Best OG, and spotted a rather nice side-by-side comparison of the original shoe and the 2016 retro. I’ve been told by ex-Reebok staff that the OG may have had ‘World Best’ stitched in an arc around the heel counter; which is not seen on the OG’s in the article, and differ to the 2016 retro where the 2 words are stacked. Check out the article here > K’Lekt
Please note that K’Lekt appear to have a form of clickbait: Clicking on the images -an obvious instinct given the articles’ subject- jumps to affiliate links (of the World Best at least), but I find it a little sneaky -BokOne
Within the article was also a short promo Video from Reebok for the retro:
