Forthcoming: Floatride 6000


I was in two minds whether to post up about this -with Retrobok focussing on pre-2000 shoes and retros. But for those of us who gym, run or exercise in any modern context: if there was a modern performance shoe inspired by the legendary 1985 GL 6000 then we’d want to know about it, right? Hit the jump for more hot air and floating shoes.

Coming this December, the Floatride 6000 is clearly inspired by the ’85 GL 6000, with the forefront flexwave, heel stability clip, upper details/logo placement and – yes – OG outsole pattern – accurately replicated. There are also definitely some subtle nods to the GL 6000 Womens OG Honest Blue/Flat Grey colourway in the promo images shown, although it would be great to see Reebok considering influences from the OG Mens’ Havana Red/Medium Grey/Steel colourway sometime too 😉


Keep an eye on stores in December if you’re keen 😉 —BokOne
