Reebok x FACE Stockholm Bolton History

Reebok had its early beginnings in the United Kingdom in 1890 when Joseph William Foster of Bolton, England saw the opportunity of producing sports shoes. Bolton, a former mill town in Greater Manchester in Northwest England is where the brand traces its roots. It is also fitting for this global brand to pay homage to the town where Foster’s vision all started and originated.

In 1992, Reebok first introduced the Bolton silhouette in a blend of mesh and synthetic micro suede with a Hexalite heel that provides superior cushioning and comfort.  With Reebok branding details over, the Bolton model easily became a classic running favorite. More than 25 years since it was released, the Reebok Bolton was only re-released in 2015 retaining its two original colorways.

Meantime, following a successful collaboration on the Reebok Classic Leather and the Reebok Instapump Fury, Swedish cosmetic franchise FACE Stockholm has again helped conceptualized another design to elevate another retro sneaker of the American brand.

FACE’s collaboration with Reebok resulted to a unisex retro runner in tones of light gray, gold, soft teal, and a touch of pink on the outsole. Soon fans of earlier Reebok collaborations have taken interest on the shoe that was sold on limited released and easily got sold out.
