UPDATE: A third colourway in the Garbstore x Reebok Workout Low Plus has emerged. The new model features a few hits of green suede and a tranquil blue outsole. Definitely a welcome addition to the pack, you can get them now over at the GS web store.
Throwing all the way back to 1985, Garbstore and Reebok reminisce about a time when luxe athletic sneakers ruled and good looks were never compromised. The resulting interpretations of the Workout Low Plus are just dripping with decadent country-club vibes – like an ageing businessman sweating a martini into a terrycloth headband, as his twenty-something trophy-wife encourages him half-heartedly through her prescription medicated stupor. In true Garbstore style, however, the beauty in the ‘boks lies in their street-ready appeal. The clean colourways have been perfectly executed, with fuzzy suede uppers and terry lining, set off with translucent outsoles.
The Garbstore x Reebok Workout Low Plus pack is available now from select stockists, including End.
