The LX 8500 is that Reebok shoe for the guy that needs to chill out on New Balance pickups for a little bit. It was one of if not THEE, best running shoe Reebok had to offer in 1986. They featured a forefoot control system that was to secure the foots alignment over the midsole and my favorite, the P.U. heel stabilizer for maximum rearfoot stability. For 2013 Reebok brought them back in all their OG glory and the biggest issue surrounding them was how to budget for these and the GL 6000. Revisit the OG above.
