Bottom line

Part of R58 series, the Aztrek R58 honors the momentous year when Joe and Jeff Foster began Reebok (in ’58). As such, this revamped Aztrek links all three generational emblems from the brand’s history, creating a trinity of Reebok logos for the first time.

While retaining the ’93 original’s staple features, such as the Hexalite cushioning and high-abrasion outsole, this Aztrek R58 puts into the spotlight an outdoor-inspired lacing system and a thoroughly retro color scheme. Priced affordably at $120, this conceptual sneaker is a gift to all Reebok fans.

The Aztrek R58 is a unisex design. These authentic retro runners are available in men’s sizing, which ranges from 3.5 to 13. Women can get their fit by going down one and a half sizes from their usual size. Say, a women's 6 is 4.5 in unisex men’s.

With its low-top construction, the Aztrek R58 gives the ankles unhindered mobility, which enables the wearer to adapt to sudden, spontaneous foot transitions. This model also runs on a traditional lace-up closure that locks that foot into the sneaker with a personalized fit.

Given its rich old-school ’90s heritage, it goes on without saying that the Aztrek R58 automatically fits that wonderful era’s baggy clothing style. Those who are fond of the retro can feel at home with these Aztreks and dress them casually with loose-fit shorts, jeans, pants, then top the look with an oversized sweater, hoodie, or tee.

On the other hand, its time-tested silhouette alone is a testament to how its design can transcend generations. Today’s minimalistic, flashy, and sleek clothing style can accentuate the Aztrek R58 and draw out its design more. Tapered-down pants and skinny jeans alike look good on these Aztreks. Currently, this model is offered in a single colorway of White/Skull Grey/Guava Punch.

Aside from the debossed “R58” and tri-logo, the Aztrek R58’s other distinctive feature is its through-and-through ’90s vibe, as seen from its chunky silhouette down to its bold color scheme. One thing that’s also worth noting is the newly added outdoor-ish lacing system. There are loops for the laces placed around the toe box area, the space below the collar, and the heel tab. This system lets the laces circle the whole shoe.

An emblem plays a big part in a brand’s life as its name can never be severed from its symbol. It lives and dies with it. As for Reebok, the brand has three emblems since its inception—from the early classic logo, the '90s Vector, and to its present Delta triangle.

Inspired to honor its heritage of over sixty years, Reebok have united these symbols for the first time and embodied it in their R58 series, which debuted in 2018 in Complexcon. The conceptual series features iterations of the Sole Fury Floatride, Futsal Fusion, and of course, the legendary Aztrek.  

  • Its EVA midsole is injection-molded in a single density and delivers a cushioned, responsive ride that is above all lightweight.
