Pump Graphlite – Version 2, OG 1994 catalogue scans

Following up from my previous post, attempting to identify a Graphlite Pump shoe I’d not seen before, which was sought after by our friend László in Hungary, I got a great email from Reebok Classics themselves who appear to have their own archivist – amazing news! Not only might this help us Retrobok fans identify OG shoe lines, but also underlines Reeboks’ desire to track their product history, something I believe fell by the wayside during various stages of the companys’ history.

1994 Pump Graphlite… or are they?

Retrobok recently received an email from László in Hungary, who’s been trying to discover the accurate name for the Pump Graphlites he bought back in 1994. Studying the catalogue scan he sent me (above), as well as the Retrobok Archives, and it remains a bit of a mystery… The catalogue itself clearly states ‘Pump Graphlite’ – perhaps this was a revised version of the shoe, with its’ outer midsole removed fully revealing the graphlite Arc Bridge in all its glory? Any suggestions to the identity of this shoe gratefully received.  —BokOne
