FL 6000 ‘Next Generation Cushioning’ Promo — Reebok Korea

With many more Floatride models recently on the market, I was getting concerned that Reebok had given up on the Floatride 6000 — an ultra-modern shoe inspired by the legendary ’85 GL 6000. But lo and behold here’s a brand new promo video from Reebok Korea.

Still keen to get hold of a pair of these; meanwhile you can check out legendary (ex-Nike) designer Tiffany Beers sharing positive feels on another Floatride model here.

Revenge Plus Gum Pack

Reebok-Revenge-Plus-Gum-Pack

The Revenge Plus —in essence a Club C but with sidestripes— carries on the huge success of the Club C retros from the last couple of years, this time with a couple of subtle makeups in Classic White/Sand Stone and Skull Grey/White (yeah I’m struggling to work out which is which!). Either way, one of the most comfortable shoes in my own collection and well worth a look.

In Praise Of Reebok Classics

classics_1024x1024.png

Great article and stunning artwork via London Store Wavey Garms on the cultural path that Reebok Classics (ie; the ‘Franchise 5‘) have taken in the UK since their respective births in the early 80’s.

“I definitely think the Classic has got a working class association, an association with the man in the in street… it’s a leveller… not every man is going to be wearing a Stan Smith”

Couldn’t have put it better myself! —BokOne

Palace Club Workout

palace-skateboards-reebok-workout-release-info-2

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.

Retrobok© needs you!

UncleSam-02

A long-overdue major update to the Retrobok Shoe Archives is currently underway deep underground at Retrobok© HQ — thousands of images are being reviewed, rotated, enhanced, cropped and organised.

If you have any Reebok catalogues, scans of catalogues, good quality photographs or eBay links with good quality photographs of retro Reebok footwear* please get in touch immediately via the Facebook page.

It would be incredible to make this one of the webs’ most accurate and extensive Sneaker archives. Let’s do Reebok proud!

Thank you,
BokOne

*Retrobok typically focuses on shoes from Reeboks’ birth in 1958, to the year 2000 with retros of those shoes after that date. JW Fosters’ shoes are also to be included.

P.E. Nation x Classic Nylon ‘United In Sport’

p-e-nation-reebok-classic-nylon-collection-1p-e-nation-reebok-classic-nylon-collection

Having lived in Australia for a few years, I’d not heard of P.E. Nation until this collab surfaced via Sneaker Bar Detroit – makes sense as P.E. were only established back in 2016, but have apparently risen fast.

Due to drop in two days time on Feb 1st, these unisex Classic Nylons run in 2 colourways — and can be seen modelled heavily on P.E. Nations own website. Always great to see an Oz brand working with Reebok.

Scotlands’ Hanon are set to release a pretty fun (and perfectly timed being the start of the new year) makeup of the Workout Lo Plus. They’ve also made an epic short promo video spoofing the memorable Reebok UK TV Ad from way way back in 2000. If you’ve not seen that – or wish to compare/revisit it’s included below too 😉

Release date is set at January 27th. —BokOne

Unleash your inner lion leopard and hear it roar snarl with Melody Ehsani’s latest Reebok collaboration.

These Freestyle Lo’s feature a dazzling nearly-all-over leopard print, matching laces and just a hint of the gum outsole visible. The shoe also features some other hidden details such as her familiar signature statement written into the inner heel: “The power of the people is greater than the people in power“.

Decorative and beautiful results on these Fury OG’s, featuring a mesh toe box, richly patterned upper and speckled midsole section.
