A far more serious article to post here on Retrobok, but one that all of us could take stock of: Reebok USA will be restructured with a move from their existing Canton headquarters in 2017, and with a workforce reduction of 150, as well as closure of Factory Outlets and FitHub stores.
We can only hope that the Classic team and all those involved are unaffacted, and the continued superb output of retros’ and new footwear stays on par. -BokOne
Things are getting a little bit strange here at Retrobok HQ, featuring 2 makeups of the Reebok Classic in a single day – but if I see something worthy of posting, then so be it —
Personally I think this is one of the finest – and most considered – treatments I’ve ever seen to the Classic ; sticking with pure Whites and filling the midsole completely with Black. I refer to shoes like this as ‘Stormtrooper’ shoes for obvious reasons and personally I love them, because they lower the perceptible height of a shoe making for a more elegant appearance.

Checking out the Reebok USA store I found these awesome sister shoes to the recent CL Trails’. Mixing the silhouette of the ’85 Workout Plus Mid with the practicalities of a Trail shoe such as the ’87 Fell Runner but using the latest materials and manufacturing techniques, these are a brutal colourway and look hugely practical. In this case, the Fell Runners’ sole design isn’t used like in the CL Trail – instead the sole used on the Night Sky Mid – with the pattern of the Reebok Classics‘ but with a tougher style . Sadly they don’t seem to be available on the UK store which is a huge shame – perhaps Reebok could consider stocking these for the UK winter? 🙂 More pics of this great looking hybrid after the jump. ~BokOne
