Recently appearing at Reebok UK are 3 new colourways of the ‘new retro’ GL 1500 — a shoe I’ve yet to pick up (slacker) but I love due to it’s use of the World Best mid and outsoles – slimmer than used on many other mid-80’s Retroboks. Reebok UK. —BokOne
Reeboks ‘new’ retro-inspired casual/runner shoe the GL 1500 has had a trickle of solid colourways released, this being the most recent. With an upper mesh material which looks similiar to the GL 6000 Marathon Pack releases from earlier this year, this also runs a familiar colourway to a retro’d World Best shoe from 2012.
The World Best of course lent its outsole and midsole to the 1500 meaning this is a low and slim shoe (if you run tight in sizes, I’d consider hopping up a size to be safe). Click on for more pics of this, link to the store and its’ similiar World Best colourway. —BokOne
BokTwo has spotted these 2 very smart makeups of the brand new GL 1500 retro shoe on Instagram and eBay. These leather treatments would put it on a slightly higher quality level than the ERS 1500 and I’m really feeling the slim silhouette of these. Great work Reebok — we’ll be looking out for further release info and posting here when we find it 🙂 —BokOne
There’s some mystery to the recent appearance of the new GL 1500 retro shoe. For example: out of these 3 new colourways, 2 appear to be fake. The giveaways are the strange CL-inspired outsoles and tiny Reebok branding window. The mystery deepens as all 3 are apparently on sale from Polish stores, with one store showing ‘out of stock’ and another with a reduced sale price….! If you’re ordering a pair of these: beware. Lots of pics of these after the jump. ebuty / butysportowe / e-megasport / surfdome —BokOne Read the rest of this entry
After my post yesterday hoping for more exciting colourways for the new GL 1500 — well my thoughts could not have been answered more immediately. This stunning colourway appears to be directly inspired by the Mens’ 1988 ERS World Road – a particular favourite shoe of mine – right down to the light grey swaybars running up from the midsole. Pre-ordering now from Japans’ Atmos (this ins’t a collaboration incidentally), release date appears to be early/mid July. Click on for more pics, and a side-by-side with the ERS World Road. Thanks to BokTwo for the spot! —BokOne Read the rest of this entry
