Palace Club Workout


Londons’ Palace Skateboards have been collabing with Reebok Classics for a few years now, providing some great results as well as hilarious video promos.

This time around, they’ve fused legendary 80’s boks Club C and Workout resulting in what looks like a pretty tidy skate shoe, using the piping areas for those colour pops (yeah huh I said it) across 3 colourways.

Hit the jump for more photos, store link and another Palace promo vid. —BokOne Read the rest of this entry

Palace x Ree-boke?

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’ 😉

Palace Skateboards — Vulcanized Workout promo

And here’s the 3rd of tonights videos — I’m absolutely loving Palace Skateboards’ grainy, VHS style promos, and this is one of their best. Revealing (in as much a blurred, badly-tracked VHS video can) a new level to collaborations with Reebok Classics: a reworking of the midsole itself. Palace have ensured that their Workout is even more Skater-focussed with a flatter vulcanized midsole, and *ahem* upto 9000 times more grip 😀 Not many online videos are worth watching twice, but this one certainly is, great work! No release details for the shoe(s) just yet but I’ll keep my eyes peeled. —BokOne

Palace 27.12.13 — Short teaser

Very short teaser clip from the UK’s Palace Skateboards with what looks like another Reebok collab. Let’s watch this space! —BokOne

Palace X Reebok clothing range

Nice! It appears that Reebok have collaborated on a range of outerwear (and 1 part underwear) with the UK’s Palace Skateboards. Curiously, no Reebok logos are visible on the clothing – on the outside at least – but the range is very nicely executed. Currently available from Canadas’ Livestock (links to Palace clothing which includes non-Reebok merchandise)—BokOne


Palace Skateboards X Reebok Classic


Awesome short, grainy VHS-style promo vid for a Reebok collaboration with UK Skateboard specialists Palace. With what looks like 2 makeups each of the Workout Plus, and the CL Vintage, and featuring the Palace logo on the tongues these are a collaboration slightly out of the norm for Reebok — and more interesting for that reason. I’d be particularly interested to see how Skateboarders view the Classic Leather. Street date shown in the video is 12th July 2013. Via The Daily Street, and thanks to Dumisani K 😀 —BokOne

Reebok Classic OG Pack


Reebok Classics are re-launching the OG Mens’ Classic and Womens’ Freestyle shoes on May 16th, which is great to see – although I’m not entirely sure they actually went out of stock.

Certainly looking crisp in extra-clean white, remember this OG pack’ differs from Vintage treatments of the same shoes (which feature yellowing, glue marks, visible stitching behind the starcrest on the tongue label, etc…).
