Reeboks ‘new’ retro-inspired casual/runner shoe the GL 1500 has had a trickle of solid colourways released, this being the most recent. With an upper mesh material which looks similiar to the GL 6000 Marathon Pack releases from earlier this year, this also runs a familiar colourway to a retro’d World Best shoe from 2012.
The World Best of course lent its outsole and midsole to the 1500 meaning this is a low and slim shoe (if you run tight in sizes, I’d consider hopping up a size to be safe). Click on for more pics of this, link to the store and its’ similiar World Best colourway. —BokOne
2 very fresh colourways that myself and BokTwo had posted up here a few months back now have now appeared at Reebok UK. The white leather, I feel is a very smart and elegant makeup for this very new retro shoe (a mix of World Best outsole, with upper inspirations from the GL 6000 and Dash Runner) all following on from the other ‘new retro’ shoe, the ERS 1500.
The Red/White/Silver pair, as previously mentioned runs extremely true to the colourway of the 1988 ERS World Road shoe, a shoe that I owned (and cherished) back in the day and would love to see fully retro’d by Reebok Classics again in the future —

These leather GL 1500‘s have just appeared on Swedens’ Shelta site, and are looking superb right down to the details. This is a brand new retro shoe from Reebok Classics with a GL 6000-inspired upper, Dash Runner toebox details, and the awesome World Best mid and outsole. The quality of these (as I’ve mentioned before) seems a step above the ERS 1500 retro shoe from last year, which is very reassuring to see. Head on over to Shelta and pick up a pair – Shelta (Sweden) —BokOne
BokTwo has spotted these 2 very smart makeups of the brand new GL 1500 retro shoe on Instagram and eBay. These leather treatments would put it on a slightly higher quality level than the ERS 1500 and I’m really feeling the slim silhouette of these. Great work Reebok — we’ll be looking out for further release info and posting here when we find it 🙂 —BokOne
After my post yesterday hoping for more exciting colourways for the new GL 1500 — well my thoughts could not have been answered more immediately. This stunning colourway appears to be directly inspired by the Mens’ 1988 ERS World Road – a particular favourite shoe of mine – right down to the light grey swaybars running up from the midsole. Pre-ordering now from Japans’ Atmos (this ins’t a collaboration incidentally), release date appears to be early/mid July. Click on for more pics, and a side-by-side with the ERS World Road. Thanks to BokTwo for the spot! —BokOne Read the rest of this entry
