Classic Leather Mid — Gore Tex®

reebok-classic-leather-mid-gore-tex-1

Very nicely finished treatment to these Mid-cut variations of the Classic Leather, featuring a Gore-Tex covered canvas upper, D-ring lace hooks (much-needed on the recent Atmos X Reebok CL Mid), and a choice of laces. The colourway isn’t quite to my personal taste, but the clear quality of finish for these – and obvious practicality for those of you headed into Wintertime – is clear. Very nice work Reebok Classics! Click on for more pics, info and  pics via Freshnessmag. Available currently from SNS in Sweden.—BokOne  Read the rest of this entry

Workout Plus Gore-Tex®

I’m a few days late reporting these, but Reebok has a Gore-Tex clad Workout Plus on the way to market shortly. These are really appealing to me, with a no-nonsense workman-like upper, black/red hiking laces with metal plackets, and the black midsole/outsole grounding things superbly. Great job Reebok!
