Some food for thought @redrum3281, but I think Reebok made a mistake with the ES22 retro and thought the original sole was a 'Gum' sole. I suppose at that point the OG sample pairs they had must've yellowed pretty badly.

Funny you should say that, but I saw a few vintage pairs on ebay that were very clear and nice, like the day they came out.

@trentbg, highly possible that the person in charge of the retro messed up. It's a known fact that Reebok doesn't know its own history from a month ago so a football trainer from the 90s would be the equivalent of writing a research paper on Stonehenge. Some of the OG Preacher pairs are yellowed too, but I guess it's from people not storing them correctly.

I think they made a mistake because they've running some damn good 'Blue' clear soles for decades, so the switch up seems odd.

That is so very true, no one there has any idea whats up.

i think i was the only one not overly bothered, after realizing that reebok's don't yellow easily, yes the clear would've been way better, but the gum sole is still nice in its own way

Yeah it's not all crazy big but they do run big. When I want them to fit more snug I could just double sock but it's not that necessary

Aaaah... leather...Too bad we are not seeing a retro any time soon, if ever.

I beat up my pair so badly! Haha

Those retros had functional DMX btw. I felt the air transfer and you could even see the raised air bumps when you remove the insoles.

Does anyone have any idea how the NPC UK II fits? I typically wear 9.5 in Vans, Asics, everything but when I tried the classic leather on in my TTS (Which everyone says to size up on), it felt long to me... should I half size down on the NPC UK II?

They were a "PE" :-) Much different than the actual PE. The Shaq was the best of of them all IMO, best quality as well, probably the best genuine suede shoe I owe. So glad I managed to scoop 2 pairs way under retail.

It depends on the width of your foot. I find Classic Leathers & NPCs quite snug across the forefoot, so I like to go 1/2 size up if I can. Sadly it's SUPER rare to find 12.5 in Reeboks! Going up a 1/2 size should only impact width, not length, but you're going from a 9 to a 10 when you go up from 9.5, so it adds length. If you're already a 9.5, you could probably stick with that.

Just my personal take. Hope it helps a bit, and good luck on getting some nice NPCs!

You could do a little so ethics with insoles.....thinner, or removed. Depends on your liking.

  My Reebok Question lows came in today and the quality was pretty good. They're right up there (quality wise) with the pairs I personally picked out myself at the Reebok outlet a while back. Not bad for $120 :D

 

 

Love Reebok ice !!!

 

Btw, these pairs were from Jimmy Jazz. $59 each.
