Latest Pickup: Garbstore x Reebok Classic Leather

I’ve written before about how much I enjoy the designs Garbstore come up with for Reebok. When I saw recently they had worked on some Classic Leather pairs, I couldn’t wait. Luckily I received a gift in the mail yesterday and sure enough it was what I think is the best of the bunch.

There have been so many recent releases from other brands drenched in full suede where I could see every imperfection and inconsistency, so at first I was a concerned that these might disappoint. Check the pictures I took (unfiltered iPhone shots) to see how they turned out.

Not surprisingly these were just about perfect. As Garbstore and Reebok so often do, every detail is nearly flawless. The suede is consistent and not shaggy. No glue stains or scuffs or factory imperfections. Colors are deep and vibrant and have just the right amount of contrast. Small touches like the small reflective panel below the Union Jack and the white stitching on the side panels give just enough design without overdoing it. White waxed laces, a large logo on the insole and terry cloth lining finish things off.

For the price (under $100) you really can’t beat the quality and classic style and comfort found in this pair. Find them at Hanon and directly from Garbstore today. I have a feeling I’ll be grabbing the other colorways from this release very soon.
