Fall/Winter 2013 — Fitness Heritage Pack

FITNESS GROUP
Featuring the Freestyle Hi, Princess, Workout Mid, Ex-O-Fit Hi, Classic Exertion Mid, and Classic Leather, this pack sees a very smart and pure treatment applied to these legendary 80’s shoes. I’m particularly impressed with the inclusion of the Workout Mids, and Classic Exertion Mid – a shoe I’m not sure I was aware of before. I’ll have to check Retroboks’ media archives! Plenty of images below, with captions to help identify the subtle differences between these great-looking shoes in this pack. All available July 1st from selected stores, and online. —BokOne

Fall/Winter 2013 — GL6000 ‘Marathon Pack’

GL 6000 GROUP SIDE
[UPDATED] Within Reeboks forthcoming Fall/Winter collection are another 3 funky GL6000 colourways — with colourways inspired by global Marathons. These have a different feel from the 2013 6000’s so far, featuring the ‘Running Man’ motif on the tongue label (as seen originally on the Paris Runner), and a grid treatment to the upper — 

These should be available from 1st July, with stores yet to be confirmed. Lots of pics after the jump! —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
