ERS 2000 — new colourways

I’m absolutely loving these new ERS 2000 colourways from Reebok Classics, which have recently appeared on their UK site. PARTICULARLY that top pair with the blue mesh upper. Very very tempted with those! Available now from Reebok UK. —BokOne



ERS 2000 colourways, Spring 2014


Last year, Reebok Classics quietly released a handful of colourways of the ERS 2000, an early-90’s model which has a traceable lineage back to the first ERS model in 1988, the ERS Trainer. For 2014, there’s a few more colourways heading to stores, running a generally Blue/Silver theme and looking quite space-age with it. Read on for more pics. —BokOne

ERS 2000 — White/Blue Sport/Vital Blue/Violet Volt/Steel


I’m not sure if that’s the fully accurate colourway name, featuring 5 colour titles but this is quite a surprise from Reebok Classics, re-releasing another retro of the 1990 ERS 2000. This shoe was originally known – in Europe at least – as the Questor ERS (and featured a different outsole) but for a reason still unknown to me, Reebok renamed a large number of these early 90’s shoes. I’m guessing due to trademark issues.

The colour blocking on this pair of 2000’s is rather new – especially the all-blue mesh toebox. Available now from Germanys’ Overkill and Switzerlands’ Titolo. —BokOne

ERS 2000 — Red/Navy/White, Royal/White

Two bold, bold new colourways for the 90’s ERS 2000 just surfaced at UK’s Urban Industry. The Red/Navy pair have a similiar ribbed treatment to the toebox and upper like one of the recent GL 6000 re-issued colourways. Word on the street is that the 6000‘s haven’t been selling so well which is a huge shame – so let’s hope these 2000‘s get noticed and turn a few heads.

ERS 2000 – Black/White/Wolf Grey

Just appeared at UK’s Size? are these bad boys, in a very sombre Black/Grey/White colourway. Any colourless sneaker is a bold decision, and these are a little towards the edge of my own tastes — I do wish Reebok had reversed out the ERS tubes in a contrasting colour to make them pop a little more, but they’ve got a plastic model kit quality to them in all-grey. Currently £80 at Size? alongside the OG colourway~BokOne

ERS 2000 @ Crooked Tongues

Nice little magazine entry over at Crooked Tongues, lauding the recent re-issue of the ERS 2000. A fun little read, though they missed an important photo: that of the ERS sole tubes themselves – definitely a key selling point to these fun retros 😉 You can see more pics on their store page, however. Available now at Crooked Tongues (thanks Dixy for the spot!) ~BokOne

ERS 2000 – White/Royal Blue, Blue/Grey

I’m not sure why I was a little surprised to see these back in stores over the last few months. Perhaps it was their premium pricepoints but possibly also because some of the previous issue ERS’s have been languishing at sales prices for a little while. Whatever the situation, they’re both pretty bold retro Boks’ and great to see them out there. | White/Royal Blue @ Urban Industry (UK) and Corner Street (France) | Blue/Grey @ Corner Street | ~BokOne

LX 8500 — Red/Black colourway, CL full grain leathers


Over at PumpMyLife blog are these pics of more 2013/2014 Reebok Classics releases, including Pump Blacktops, Ventilators, ERS 2000’s, the full-grain leather CL’s shown above… and another bold new colourway for the – yet unreleased – LX 8500 (far right – you can also spy the green colourway hiding behind.). As BokTwo pointed out, you can clearly see the reflective 3M arc on the 8500’s, picked up behind the black CL’s. PumpMyLife —BokOne


Hanon X Reebok — CL 30th Anniversary teaser


Not much info on these yet, but no doubt these are a collaboration with Scotlands’ Hanon Shop judging by the tongue label. Really interesting makeup – with what appears to be a contrasting red/black outsole, but how to describe the upper suede panelling… biscuity camo? 🙂 Thanks to Piotr for making me aware of these.  —BokOne

Many many pics and link after the jump. —BokOne

The Top 10 shoes that Reebok Classics should retro in 2016


It needs saying, and it needs saying loud: 2015 has been another great year for Reebok retros. With the Ventilators‘ 25th Anniversary came the OG’s then dozens of stunning collabs. A smorgasbord of LX 8500 makeups and collabs appeared – some blurring the line between the shoe and its’ fabric/mesh brethren the GL 6000.
