REEBOK CLASSIC VINTAGE COLLECTION PREVIEW
May 5, 2011
As Issue 21 of Sneaker Freaker starts hitting stores and news stands around the globe, here’s a sneak peek at our special preview of Reebok’s Classic Vintage Collection. Featuring the Freestyle Hi, Workout Low Plus and the Classic Leather, these super clean white gym shoes might at first glance seem quite mild and elegantly restrained. But it belies the seismic impact that they made when first released in the early 80s. These are some of the most storied shoes in sneaker lore, catapulting the ‘Bok into the stratosphere and making it the #1 selling brand in the business. The blinding white uppers were a stunning departure from the increasingly convoluted mesh and suede running concoctions of the day. Plus the groundbreaking use of luxurious garment leather added tangible quality you could instantly feel. Finally, these iconic shoes are set to return in their full vintage glory…. make sure you cop Sneaker Freaker Issue 21 for the full story.
