Renarts x LX 8500 ‘Dead End Kids’

renarts_slide-1-image

Apparently inspired by the off-field behaviour of the 1986 New York Mets team, these stunning LX 8500’s feature an all-black leather upper, with a Mets-Blue suede toecap, and orange piping on the medial (inner) side of the shoe representing the neon signs at the Mets’ Shea stadium. Hit the jump for more photography and keyboard mashing.

The removal of the Reebok logo window is a unique touch, with a debossed LX 8500 on the heel wrap showing a high quality of finish.

  1. These are the awful new GL 6000 with the cheap-ass painted midsoles. I respected Reebok for not following adidas and New Balance down this awful road – Nike have always done it. Painting the different densities on the midsole, instead of cutting and inserting, is like painting the hands on a Rolex. Shit. Shame on Reebok.
