Solebox’ Hikmet talks about the CL ‘Sturnella Militaris’

Berlins’ Solebox has recently unveiled it’s striking ‘Sturnella Militaris’ Classic Leather makeup, in black leather and red seude. Hikmet, one of the 2 Solebox owning brothers, talks about his stores relationship with Reebok and shows us around Berlin Zoo as well. Nice bonus there. Via HypeBeastTV —BokOne

CL — Geezer

Hahahahahahahaha! Love the little description added to this CL info panel over at Swedish site SixFeetDown (aka Caliroots). —BokOne

CL Lux Txt

Reebok are making the most of the CL’s silhouette with these seriously decent makeups. It’s the details that really count too, with the simple-but-effective vintage feel midsoles and the metal laceholes icing this cake. These are incredibly tempting – great work! The LUX abbreviation obviously means Luxury, and I’m presuming TXT is for Textile — if anybody can confirm that, I’d be most grateful. Currently available at Kickz UK and Titolo (Switzerland) —BokOne

Reebok x Packer CL ‘Aztec’ — release date, more pics!

F f f r r r r e s h is the word… some really tasty new shots of the Packer x Reebok collab, inspired by the legendary 1979 Aztec. Release date is now confirmed as 23rd March at 12 noon at the Packer Store in the U.S., as well as at Solebox Germany (and I’m sure a few other selected stores).

Remember that you’ll find more info about the original Aztec here on Retrobok than any other website — try the 70’s Reeboks and 70’s Media sections for starters…. more pics of the hot Packer after the jump. and a classic 1980 ad for the original Aztec 🙂 —BokOne Read the rest of this entry

Making of a Classic blueprint: The Reebok Classic Leather

3 x Classic Leather articles in one day? Sure! The HypeBeast article also mentioned a tidy little video I’d forgotten to post onto Retrobok, “Making of a Classic blueprint: The Reebok Classic Leather“. It’s pretty special. Enjoy! ~BokOne

Classic Leather: Dissected

HypeBeast has recently dissected the CL, now in it’s 30th year (which is the reason why Retrobok is posting many CL articles in case you were wondering), revealing some curious part names such as the Vamp Lining and Lateral Quarter Underlay. Jump over to see the full detail @ HypeBeast — BokOne

Classicean… pack?

In a curious move, these somewhat 70’s feeling Ex-O-Fit Hi Vintage makeups have appeared on Reebok UK, whilst simultaneously disappearing from Italys’ Sneakers76 (where they’d been languishing for quite a few months now – unless I’ve mistaken them for a similiar shoe). Curious too is the name, but also the fact that the Keith Haring CL’s have also been bestowed the ‘Classicean’ title as well. Is this a pack? A re mark-up? If Reebok provided press releases, perhaps I could tell you. Each at £80 on Reebok UK ~BokOne

Classic Leather Pastel (Womens)

Continuing the 30th Anniversary celebrations of the Classic Leather, these are available now at SNS for €89 ~BokOne

CL + CL Mid Lux Keith Haring

These eye-popping shoes, currently available at luxury site Luisaviaroma are clearly inspired by the popular Jeremy Scott x Adidas collabs over the last few years. Whether Reebok are doing a good thing with these is a matter of personal taste. Each shoe image links directly out. ~BokOne

Additional – There are a few more Keith Haring x Reeboks out there, as this Tumblr image shows —

Reebok CL Leather Retro (Seude)

2 more colourways of this I’ve just spotted – with the ‘SINCE 1983’ debossed on the heel counter, and the 30th Anniversary detail on the tongue label – they’re a little bit muted for me personally, but perhaps to your taste? Currently £54.99 at Urban Industry | Athletic Navy & Khaki Paper White | ~BokOne
