The one thing that the Reebok Phase One (coming up) was not, was, um. . . particularly cool. If it hadn't been so new, so incredibly plush and so different from other product out there, it would have been a skip. A high school science teacher shoe. If you don’t know what that is, try to remember what that nerdleman was wearing when you were in 9th grade. The Act 600 took the next step. Similarly plush, the Act 600 had just enough color to set it off in the summertime, but remained refined enough to facilitate your request for Grey Poupon from the Rolls Royce in the neighbouring lane (see what I did right there?). Since I really had no point of reference for Reebok other than Phase One, I thought these were actually called Phase Twos for a very long time.
