In Praise Of Reebok Classics


Great article and stunning artwork via London Store Wavey Garms on the cultural path that Reebok Classics (ie; the ‘Franchise 5‘) have taken in the UK since their respective births in the early 80’s.

“I definitely think the Classic has got a working class association, an association with the man in the in street… it’s a leveller… not every man is going to be wearing a Stan Smith”

Couldn’t have put it better myself! —BokOne

Wavey Garms — In Praise Of Reebok Classics



Palace Club Workout


Londons’ Palace Skateboards have been collabing with Reebok Classics for a few years now, providing some great results as well as hilarious video promos.

This time around, they’ve fused legendary 80’s boks Club C and Workout resulting in what looks like a pretty tidy skate shoe, using the piping areas for those colour pops (yeah huh I said it) across 3 colourways.

Retrobok© needs you!


A long-overdue major update to the Retrobok Shoe Archives is currently underway deep underground at Retrobok© HQ — thousands of images are being reviewed, rotated, enhanced, cropped and organised.

If you have any Reebok catalogues, scans of catalogues, good quality photographs or eBay links with good quality photographs of retro Reebok footwear* please get in touch immediately via the Facebook page.

It would be incredible to make this one of the webs’ most accurate and extensive Sneaker archives. Let’s do Reebok proud!

Thank you,

*Retrobok typically focuses on shoes from Reeboks’ birth in 1958, to the year 2000 with retros of those shoes after that date. JW Fosters’ shoes are also to be included.

Retrobok is 7


February 2011 seems a long long time ago already. Thanks to every Retrobok visitor, contributor (especially ‘Dixy’ aka BokTwo), and Reebok staff past and present who have been incredible with their support and information. —BokOne

P.E. Nation x Classic Nylon ‘United In Sport’


Having lived in Australia for a few years, I’d not heard of P.E. Nation until this collab surfaced via Sneaker Bar Detroit – makes sense as P.E. were only established back in 2016, but have apparently risen fast.

Due to drop in two days time on Feb 1st, these unisex Classic Nylons run in 2 colourways — and can be seen modelled heavily on P.E. Nations own website. Always great to see an Oz brand working with Reebok.

Hanon x Workout Lo Plus “Belly’s Gonna Get Ya”


Scotlands’ Hanon are set to release a pretty fun (and perfectly timed being the start of the new year) makeup of the Workout Lo Plus. They’ve also made an epic short promo video spoofing the memorable Reebok UK TV Ad from way way back in 2000. If you’ve not seen that – or wish to compare/revisit it’s included below too 😉

Release date is set at January 27th. —BokOne

Melody Ehsani x Freestyle Lo


Unleash your inner lion leopard and hear it roar snarl with Melody Ehsani’s latest Reebok collaboration.

These Freestyle Lo’s feature a dazzling nearly-all-over leopard print, matching laces and just a hint of the gum outsole visible. The shoe also features some other hidden details such as her familiar signature statement written into the inner heel: “The power of the people is greater than the people in power“.

Montana Cans x Classic Leather


Nearly passed these by until I noticed the collaboration was with Germany-based Spray Can manufacturer Montana Cans. Liking the striking effect achieved on both these. Available later today from Germanys’ Asphalt Gold in Black/White or White/Black. —BokOne (Click on for more images…) Read the rest of this entry

Super-rare Womens DL 5000 on eBay now


Absolutely stoked to see this beautiful and ultra-rare shoe: the Womens White/Light Blue makeup of the much-missed DL 5000 which was selling shortly after the 1985 GL 6000 (please comment if you know for sure).

I’m not sure I’d seen them in this colourway before -at least in this much detail- and it took me a while to find this colourway within the Retrobok Media Archive (I was also surprised to note that while reviews stated it was almost indiscernible from the GL 6000, it actually weighed a little more – possibly due to its pigskin upper?).

Seeing the stunning DL 5000 does prompt me to ask the question directly to the Reebok Classic team: isn’t it about time for a retro of the DL 5000, 5600 and 6000? Paul? 😉

eBay (notice the OG brochures included in the sale too)
Thanks to the owner for getting in touch about these. —BokOne

SNS x Club C ’85 ‘Premium’


Today sees a very sweet collab release of the hugely popular Club C ’85 by Swedish store SNS – with the C getting an even cleaner treatment with the removal of any logo on the upper side, as well as elk leather and gold debossing details.

I’d actually say that photos don’t do the elegant simplicity of this shoe justice – If you don’t yet own a pair (and regardless of season) isn’t it about time?

Available in a few hours time at SNS (and if you sleep on those, no doubt Reebok will release a similar makeup in the next few months).
