The Reebok Aztrek x Gigi Hadid is a unisex design offered in men’s sizing, which ranges from 4.5 to 11. Women can get their unisex size by going down one and a half sizes from their original size. For example, a women’s 10 is 8.5 in this chart.

Furthermore, this bulky, fashionable sneaker has a sleek low-cut design, which allows the ankles a full range of mobility. It also uses a traditional lace-up closure to lock in the feet with a custom fit.

Though the Aztrek’s 1990s heritage appears thick and strong, Hadid was able to spice up its design with her subtle color palette, which looks so luxuriously modern. Wearers can rock these Aztreks with any casual outfit as it is also a classic silhouette.

The Aztrek x Gigi Hadid goes along easily with the 1990s fashion style as well as today’s style. It fits any casual wear found in the closet—shorts, jeans, sweatpants, track pants, yoga pants, joggers, just about any active casual wear. Anyone can get these Aztreks in two colorways: Chalk/Neon Red/Black and Black/Neon Orange/White.

Hadid’s Aztrek showcases a look that lies between the street and high fashion. The Aztrek’s trademark bulky shape is coupled with Hadid’s neon accents and textured leather overlays. Now it has a more sophisticated look that is good to go in a fashion walk or the streets.         

Reebok have dug up their 1980s and 1990s shelves and brought back to life some vintage silhouettes that didn’t seem to have aged. Back then, these silhouettes became icons that defined a generation or two. Among them is the beefy-soled Aztrek, a good old runner first released in 1993. In 2018, Reebok had let the Aztrek reemerge from the dusty archives.

The nostalgic retro model had a successful reception, urging Reebok to push the envelope further and make room for reinterpretations. And so Reebok collaborated with one of the best fashion models of the recent generation, namely Gigi Hadid. Together, they launched the Reebok x Gigi Hadid capsule. The classic Aztrek became part of the project and now has a fresh interpretation by Hadid.

  • Reebok x Gigi Hadid collaboration branding is detailed in the tongue, insole, and laces.
  • Its rubber outsole is built tough to endure high abrasions.
  • The diamond-studded outsole pattern provides all-terrain stability and traction.
