Rapide OG available now in Korea

Two initial colourways for the 1995 Rapide OG are now available at ABC Mart in South Korea. No sign of the Rapide surfacing over at Japans’ ABC Mart outlets however, let’s hope this isn’t just a Korean-only release. -BokOne

The Rapide is BACK!

It’s funny how the little things in life are often the most satisfying. Originating in the mid-80’s, the Rapide was Reeboks’ entry-level lightweight trainer/runner, and if I recall correctly was hugely popular, alongside shoes like the slightly more expensive Royale.

I’ve been awaiting a retro of the 1986 Rapide – my first ‘boks – for a very long time. But it’s still hugely exciting to see its’ 1995 namesake make a re-appearance, shown in 2 colourways at this time.

Yet the Rapide has an interesting history of its’ own… hit the jump to read more.  Read the rest of this entry

90’s Rapides — eBay


Just spotted a couple of great looking 90’s Rapides on eBay, with some superb archive-quality photos also. Rare to see such Retroboks appear together on eBay, boxed and in such good condition. Click on for more images and eBay link. —BokOne  Read the rest of this entry

Dixy on the detective tip once again, spotted these Twitter posts from #reebokclassicsuk. Some interesting shoes hidden within what could be archival models (such as GL6000, Phase II, Omni Pump Lite, ERS1500, Dash Runner, Ventilator, Insta Pump Fury, Dual Running Pump, many CL’s etc…) Dixy thought he spotted some LX8500 retro’s in there somewhere, but I can’t see them – much as I want to! However, most exciting for me are the possible Rapide retros (shown in the 2nd image, bagged and circled) Dixy added a reference image of the OG Rapides too. Here’s hoping Reebok! Rapides were my own first pair of Retroboks 😀 —BokOne
