By now, Sneaker News readers are fully aware of the fact that this year marks the Nike Air Force 1’s 30th anniversary, but let’s be careful not to forget another icon of 1980s style celebrating a monumental birthday of its own in 2012. The Reebok Workout Plus is classic ‘aerobics’-era design, a time when people somehow thought that dancing in place and eating low fat foods prescribed by a deck of color-coded cards could somehow get you looking like Arnold. And with this being the time when so many have resolved to lose weight, Solebox founder Hikmet Soeger competing against his brother Sükret in a ‘biggest loser’ style competition makes the fishscale theme of Solebox’ Workout Plus one of the most tightly wound themes in recent memory (especially considering that these kinds of challenges are widely considered unhealthy, even when compared to the aforementioned historical blunders). We’ve come to expect nothing less when Solebox collaborates on a sneaker release, but will you buy this first of fifteen Workout Plus collabos scheduled for the 25th birthday year?
