Woody from Sneaker Freaker was recently invited to the Chinese factory manufacturing the 2014 Pump Fury retro, and provided a cut-down online report of his visit. The full report will be featured in issue 30 of Sneaker Freaker magazine, will definitely be looking forward to that. View the online report and images now! —BokOne

Sole Trainer

V60237

“In 1990, the Sole Trainer was considered a break through trainer, offering the lightweight  forefoot and rear cushioning of HEXALITE technology while the molded straps on the forefoot and rear of the upper provided a comfortable fit. The Dupont molded Evalite midsole made it also the most durable lightweight trainer on the market at that time.”

So here’s 4 colourways for 2014, with the OG colourway above in White/Bright Cadmium/Steel with 3 new darker seasonal makeups shown below. Interesting to note that the OG 1990 colourway utilises Leather and Polypag materials, with the 2014 colourways using Pig Seude and Mesh. I’m really liking the bold colour blocking on the 2014 shoes particularly, with the OG colourway boasting it’s own distinguishable colouway.

All of these are available now from stores selling the Classic Reserve collection. Click on to see all 4 shoes. —BokOne

GL 6000 — 2014, part 1

With Reebok Classics running their #REEBOKIGNITE2014 social media campaign, a few sneak-peeks of 2014 GL 6000 colourways have appeared on Instagram, the most notable of the 2 above being the Paris Runner inspired Red-White-Blue makeup. 2014 will push the GL 6000′s number of released colourways well clear of 50, a huge number reflecing the significance of this shoe within Reebok Classics’ heritage. I’m curious to know if anyone out there has all, or approaching all of the retro’d 6000 colourways, perhaps only Swizz Beatz himself? Will update on release info for these when I see them. Thanks to BokTwo for the info. —BokOne

Pump Omni Zone — 2013 (?) releases

3 very very fresh forthcoming makeups of the Pump Omni Zone have been revealed. These colourways reveal design details coherent with it’s father, the Pump Twilight Zone. I also feel that these colour makeups are much more succesful compared with recent Twilight colours. These fresh Omni’s are reported to be due in 2014 by other sites – but I have a feeling these will be available in December 2013. Click on to see the makeups in full. —BokOne  Read the rest of this entry
