Menswear retailer Oi Polloi are no strangers to collaborations with recent limited edition pieces for Nudie Jeans and Norse Projects. So it would then seem like a natural for the Manchester-based brand to join forces with Reebok, no stranger to collaborations themselves. Say hello to the Reebok x Oi Polloi NPC UK II!
The year is 1985, an epidemic of tennis fever is sweeping the nation and Reebok are ruling the court with a White, leathery fist. They’ve just released the original NPC UK II and tennis players throughout the land are overjoyed with the ‘abrasion resistant outsole’ and high class garment leather.
Now, 30 years later, Oi Polloi has managed to bring the NPC UK II back in all its glory. Based on a pair found in the top-secret trainer bunker of Oi Polloi main-man Nigel Lawson, this classic silhouettes is crisp, clean and comfortable.
The slightly smaller sized NPC UK II features a retro Cream soft leather upper with the Reebok logo stitched on the outer side and heel. It has a Grey loopback lining and a rubber sole unit for the ultimate in tennis-style comfort. Oi Polloi make their mark with coordinating branding on the inner sole of one shoe, as well as adding its logo to the tongue tab.
The Oi Polloi x Reebok NPC UK II is available now on the Oi Polloi Website for £75. This is limited edition so there’s only 300 available therefore you’ll need to get there quick if you want your size!
