Slipping under my radar – and with thanks to Le Site de la Sneaker for making me aware – the Fitness Heritage pack features full OG retros of the Freestyle and Workout Plus – 2 of Reebok Classics’ ‘Franchise 5‘ (the other 3 being Classic Leather, Ex-O-Fit, and NPC).
Le Site de la Sneaker broke the news, and included a little interview (translated to French) with Retrobok about some of the shoes’ history. The Fitness Heritage pack is available now from European stores (no sighting in the US, Asia or Australia as yet I’m afraid).

I’m a few days late reporting these, but Reebok has a Gore-Tex clad Workout Plus on the way to market shortly.

Available now at Size? – each image links directly over. —BokOne
