1 more ERS 1500, 3 more GL 6000!

Things seem a bit crazy right now: yet more retro ‘Boks are hitting shops I’d not even discovered until today. The 4 above — plus the Blue/Yellow ERS 1500 and a great selection of other Reeboks — are all available at Melbournes’ Sure! store (damn I miss that city….) Each image also quicklinks out to the specific shoe. Good times! | ~BokOne

ERS 1500 – White/Black/Grey/Green

There’s clearly some careful planning by Reebok here – drip-feeding the various ERS 1500 colourways almost singularly out to specific stores, but here is what appears to be the 4th – and final? – colourway of the ‘1500 for the Winter 2012/2013 season. | Solebox (Germany) | ~BokOne


ERS 2000 – White/Royal Blue, Blue/Grey

I’m not sure why I was a little surprised to see these back in stores over the last few months. Perhaps it was their premium pricepoints but possibly also because some of the previous issue ERS’s have been languishing at sales prices for a little while. Whatever the situation, they’re both pretty bold retro Boks’ and great to see them out there. | White/Royal Blue @ Urban Industry (UK) and Corner Street (France) | Blue/Grey @ Corner Street | ~BokOne

ERS 1500 – Navy/Gray/White/Yellow

A surprising selection of stores in the UK are now stocking the ERS 1500 in the Navy/Yellow colourway below (though I’ve not yet seen any store other than Titolo in Switzerland stock more than 1 colourway). Available for around the £55 mark
| 5Pointz | Shopstyle | Chemical Records | Additionally, have images of 4 colourways for the ERS 1500. | ~BokOne

ERS 1500 – Black/Blue/Steel/Aubergine/Pink

The 2nd ERS 1500 colourway to break cover at Titolo, I’ve not yet seen them anywhere else (if you have, please let me know in the comments). These are really bad ass design, and completely in the Retrobok spirit – congratulations to Reebok for doing this. However, and I hate to say this, but I’m not totally convinced about the finish quality on these. The rear midsole in particular reminds me of the Reebok World Mile : itself a budget shoe, and the rubber-cleated sole is a curious design choice for what is – at least in spirit – a road/track runner. Either way, I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a pair and seeing them in the flesh. Remember there is a second colourway available too!

Energaire Technology

Hidden amongst the Reebok Pump lineup was this fascinating and somewhat forgotten technology called Energaire —

From what I’m aware, Energaire was a 3rd-party technology used by Reebok on the 1991 Pump Walking (below), and the more sober Comfort I (bottom). The technology was also used on shoes by the Spalding company.

A number of Patents define this technology as using fluids or air to transmit between the 2 reservoirs at either end – for the purpose of “encouraging a Walkers’ consistent foot-strike”.  The Pump Walking itself apparently has 3 technologies incorporated – Pump,  Energaire, and Hexalite (supposedly in the heel) making it a shoe with more tech than any other in memory. If you have any more information, please comment below! ~BokOne

ERS 1500 pre-order!

Yep, here they are! Possibly one of the most exciting ‘retro’ Reebok releases for a while now ; an all-new pair of ERS runners!
Pre-orders over at the Swiss Titolo store. Go! ~BokOne


ERS 1500 – Another possible colourway, more pics.

Spotted over at Sneakernews are some more pics of the (hopefully) forthcoming ERS 1500’s in 2013.
The Grey/Red/Blue shown below appear additional to the previously-shown 4 colourways (check this page).

Reebok Classics Spring 2013 – NEW ERS RUNNERS!!

Oh Wow.
Spotted over at Fat Kids are a selection of Reeboks’ 2013 releases. For Retrobok I’m loving the CL Leather Trail variants ;

The 2013 Dash Runners ;

But MOST exciting by a long long shot are these ERS 1500’s ; Reebok-ERS-1500-2013-04

These are a pretty exciting set of shoes, the ERS tubes remind me of the Adidas Handball (though in their case, they had 5 removable plugs).

Great stuff Reebok – can’t wait to pick these up from stores!
