Ventilator SDE & Pump Running Dual Mid by Reebok X Garbstore
The latest Reebok x Garbstore launch heralds the arrival of four updated colorways of existing Garbstore collaborations. Ventilator SDE in a Dark Brown and Twlight Blue and the Pump Running Dual Mid Vent in Black and Aluminium.
Garbstore redesigned Reebok’s Pump Running Dual low-cut silhouette into a mid with suede upper and leather overlays to the front and side wall. Finishing with contrasting reinforced stitching. On a white midsole and tonal laces and Garbstore labeling on the tongue.
With the retro Ventilator silhouette celebrating it’s 20 year anniversary this year, we’ve seen a spike in this styles popularity. Garbstore has presented a new updated version with a suede upper and mesh inserts. Built with the hexalite cushioning technology with upper detailing and a screenprinted graphic, toweling lining, tonal lace accents and coated laces.
Garbstore AW15 'Walking In Seventy' focuses on the British Pastime of Rambling (walking through the countryside) with a particular interest in the 1970's.
Across the range this can be seen through fabrics and styles reminiscent of the 70's. In keeping with Garbstore's penchant for post war clothing, and adaptation of the past, a range of ramblers are represented. Garbstore's jersey embraces sportswear fabrics of the 70's with velour, toweling and micro-fleece garments that are interchangeable as more casual items or functional sportswear. Throughout the woven selection appropriations and recreations of real vintage pieces and fabric treatments allow for a wider telling of the story.
This ranges from sturdy outerwear to casual tailoring brought together through functionality and practicality. The detailing as usual gives authenticity to the collection with vintage zips and buttons.
Garbstore's Made in England Knitwear is also back for another season. The inspiration for the knitwear is always heavily rooted in knitting techniques and the creation of interesting knitted textiles. This season particularly focusing on combining different techniques within the individual pieces. Shop this season's collection available in-store and online.

Insta Pump Fury Road by Reebok X Garbstore
This style was previously unavailable outside of Japan, the Insta Pump Fury Road takes inspiration and was actually released the same year as the Insta Pump Fury with a few notable differences. The original split cushioned outsole, a distinguishing feature of the Insta Pump Fury, is replaced with an all in one 'Hexalite' mid-sole with the webbing mesh designed and using marbled print neoprene as the upper material.
For the in-store London and LA launch, Garbstore collaborated with a local street artist to create a special 'anamorphic' installation. The time lapse video captures frame by frame view the artist went through to complete the artwork. Using a technique dating back to the Renaissance times called 'anamorphic projection', the artist created a distorted flat image requiring the viewer to stand at a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image.
Available in two colorways - Sound Blue or Menta Rey.
