LX 8500 now available from Reebok UK & US Stores

LX8500 GROUP

The LX 8500 has now appeared on Reeboks’ official UK store in the railroad grey colourway at £90. In the US both colourways are available (slightly tough pill to swallow for UK Reebok fans it has to be said), but ahead of the September release date the global boutique stores have been waiting for. These haven’t yet appeared on the Asian or other European Reebok store sites from what I can see. Reebok UK / Reebok US. —BokOne

LX 8500 Vintage Pack — September 1st release date likely

lx_faraway

Release date still a bit faraway? One of my Reebok contacts suggested that September 1st is the likely global release date for the LX 8500 Vintage Pack we’re all excited about. One of Retroboks’ halo shoes? Will it be worth the wait? Absolutely. —BokOne

Retrobok EXCLUSIVE: LX8500 Vintage Pack first glimpse

V48986_2 V48987_2

I am hugely hugely proud to present a Web first  showing first glimpses of the Fall/Winter 2013 LX85000 Vintage Pack. In Railroad Grey/Olympic Creme/Black and Athletic Navy/Olympic Creme/Railroad Grey, these retros feature premium soft leather upper with snakeskin embossed heel. Reebok have really gone the whole vintage treatment including the yellowing glue, pre-worn leather upper, and slighty iffy midsole panelling, although I think the originals’ 3M reflective piping on the heel counter has been dropped. Cherry on this Retrobok cake is the accurate vintage 80’s logotype on the upper, which was slightly crammed into the side window of the OG’s with the ® often part-visible.  If so, I’m extremely happy to see this, and proud if Retrobok helped inspire this retro. More images + info shortly. —BokOne
