Despite its hefty, elevated looks, the Reebok Aztrek Double x Gigi Hadid has a low-cut design, which does not hinder ankle motion. Moreover, it uses a traditional lacing system to provide the feet with a custom, lockdown fitting.

The Reebok Aztrek Double x Gigi Hadid is a unisex design offered in men’s sizing, which ranges from 3.5 to 12, and women’s sizing ranging from 5 to 13.5. 

Hadid’s touches have brought out a fresher, fleshier Aztrek silhouette, spiced up with her neon-ish color palettes. She had made the retro silhouette more voluptuous. It fits casual outfits, activewear, and athleisure. Think skinny jeans, tapered joggers, yoga pants, sweatpants. Even shorts and skirts go along with this sexy sneaker.

Lastly, the Reebok Aztrek Double x Gigi Hadid comes in two colorways: in white/true grey/red/gold and black/blue/grey/gold.

The most striking twist in the Aztrek silhouette is its Haute couture-ish vibe, brought by Hadid’s bright neon color schemes and elevated midsole. The Reebok Aztrek Double x Gigi Hadid is good to go not only in the streets but also in fashion walks.

Reebok first released the Aztrek, a beefy-soled runner, in 1993. It was among the Reebok silhouettes that defined the ’90s generation, but got shelved, gathering dust, in the archives. In 2018, the Aztrek got revived. Thanks to the reemergence of the ’90s culture.

The Aztrek saw success, and this urged Reebok to explore its potentials, making it a subject to iterations (like the Aztrek Double) and collaborations. And so Reebok began working with one of the top fashion models of today’s generation, Gigi Hadid, and launched the Reebok x Gigi Hadid capsule. The Aztrek is among the classic silhouettes on which the brand and the supermodel collaborated.

  • The Reebok x Gigi Hadid capsule also includes multiple reinterpretations of the Classic Leather and Freestyle.
  • Its EVA sock liner is removable to accommodate orthotics.
