GL 1500 Athletic — 3 new colourways


Recently appearing at Reebok UK are 3 new colourways of the ‘new retro’ GL 1500 — a shoe I’ve yet to pick up (slacker) but I love due to it’s use of the World Best mid and outsoles – slimmer than used on many other mid-80’s Retroboks. Reebok UK. —BokOne

GL 1500 — Black/Techy Red/White







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

GL 1500 — More colourways spotted, and fakes…

There’s some mystery to the recent appearance of the new GL 1500 retro shoe. For example: out of these 3 new colourways, 2 appear to be fake. The giveaways are the strange CL-inspired outsoles and tiny Reebok branding window. The mystery deepens as all 3 are apparently on sale from Polish stores, with one store showing ‘out of stock’ and another with a reduced sale price….! If you’re ordering a pair of these: beware. Lots of pics of these after the jump. ebuty butysportowe / e-megasportsurfdome —BokOne  Read the rest of this entry

GL 1500 — White/Excellent Red/Space Grey/Pure Silver


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
