2017 is the 25th anniversary of Reeboks’ legendary Shaq Attaq – the brands’ first official ‘signature shoe’ with Basketball star Shaquille O’Neal. Reebok are planning many retros of this shoe this year, with the ‘home’ OG slated to be the first.

But first here’s a superb interview by Zack Schlemmer over at Sneaker News with Judy Close – the designer of the legendary Shaq Attaq, Blacktop series and Pump Omni Zone – on both the design process and the man himself.

Slipping under my radar – and with thanks to Le Site de la Sneaker for making me aware – the Fitness Heritage pack features full OG retros of the Freestyle and Workout Plus – 2 of Reebok Classics’ ‘Franchise 5‘ (the other 3 being Classic Leather, Ex-O-Fit, and NPC).

Le Site de la Sneaker broke the news, and included a little interview (translated to French) with Retrobok about some of the shoes’ history. The Fitness Heritage pack  is available now from European stores (no sighting in the US, Asia or Australia as yet I’m afraid).

Instapump Fury Road ‘multi-camo’

reebok-instapump-fury-what-the-camo-02

Pretty damn wild makeup on these retros of the 1994 Instapump Fury Road, featuring not 1, not 2, but 5 different camo patterns. Great to see Reebok themselves stepping up their designs to match the more creative collabs of the last few years. Hit the jump for more images, and store links. -BokOne  Read the rest of this entry
