The Reebok classic-inspired 3D OP. Pro is a unisex design available in men’s sizes ranging from 4 to 15. For women, go down one and a half sizes from men’s. The sneaker is a low-top with a knit collar, which makes for a soft, breathable fit and a freer range of ankle movements.
Though a sleek, sophisticated-looking silhouette, the Reebok 3D OP.Pro is a born of a late 1990s heritage. Its classic chunky split outsole is further refined with a remarkably unique, modern-ish upper, made with layers of knit cashmere and suede leather.
Futuristic yet still retains that retro vibe, the Reebok 3D OP.Pro fits various styles across the eras. Men and women can go for that 1990s baggy look with a pair of loose-fit pants paired with a hoodie or a tee shirt under a jacket. Or go with the modern casual and sporty outfit such as dark denims or sweatpants, which tapered down to the ankles, revealing the color of the socks as well as accentuating the sneaker’s beefy silhouette. Available colorways for the Reebok 3D OP.Pro are Cool Grey/Light Grey/White/Black, Black/Green, and Black/Hyper Green/White/Reebok Red.
Excelling in both design and function, the Reebok 3D OP.Pro is indeed a standout sneaker. It features a curious-looking, but breathable upper.

All this sits on top of the 3D Ultralite split outsole, which is lightweight but provides incredible cushioning.
Reebok was launched in 1958 by Joe and Jeff Foster, who lived in England. They got the name Reebok from a South African dictionary, which Joe won at a race when he was a kid. "Rhebok" was the name of fast-running antelope, a name which fit the Foster brothers' vision: that is to make a name in running and athletics.
At first, Reebok made a big name in producing spiked pumps, which were worn by champions. Since Reebok are still based in England, they exported their products worldwide. Eventually, Reebok reached America, where luck turned toward them. In the late 1980s, Reebok became the top footwear brand in North America.
The 1980s and 1990s decades saw some leading footwear introducing strange-looking, futuristic designs that became part of the Reebok classics. Among which was Reebok's patented split outsole tooling. In 1992, Reebok launched the Split Reebok series. The Pump Graphite first boasted the revolutionary split outsole. As a result, it had less bulk but with greater comfort and stability. In 1994, the Instapump Fury, the most iconic of the Reebok Fury series, appeared. The Opus (or OP.) followed in 1998, which was reintroduced twenty years later.
In homage to the Opus’s legacy, the Reebok 3D OP.Pro was released, with updated materials for the modern era but with the same attitude of the 1998 Reebok Opus classic.
- The model has an underfoot transition bridge. This design allows the forefoot and rearfoot to move independently, have better stability, and run on surfaces without straining the foot through excess motion.
