It seems like bringing the contemporary blood in vintage apparel is a dominating theme in concurrent sneakers nowadays.

In the case of these Reebok Futsal Fusion R58, the vector logo is prominent as observed on the midsole and the side panels. Completing the pack of nods is a Reebok Delta logo on the heel as well as a Union Jack flag and Starcrest along the vamp and tongue, respectively.
