Introduced in 1983 for “style-conscious men and women,” the Classic Leather was a shoe that played the casual card over peak performance. A functional yet fashionable classic, the Classic Leather quickly became a wardrobe staple. Released a decade before runners became complicated and overly technical, it’s the utter simplicity of the Classic Leather that defines its timeless appeal.
One of the best-known Reebok shoes in history and in the athletic footwear industry, the Freestyle Hi was introduced in 1982 as the first aerobic hi-top to combine support, stability and high-fashion. Sporty yet street enough to take girls right from the gym floor to the nightclub door, the Freestyle became a quintessential component of the ‘80’s uniform and it was the first athletic shoe targeted for women. In the history of modern sportswear, few sneakers can lay claim to having changed the fundamentals of an entire industry but with the Freestyle, Reebok instantly captured the spirit of an entire generation.
