Size and fit

These cool, throwback sneakers are available in unisex sizing. Men and women who want to cop a pair are suggested to go their normal size, as the Classic Leather 1983 TV fits true to size. However, some would say that the shoes run a little small. 

With a traditional lace-up fastening, using flat laces, a more secure and custom fit is achieved.

Reebok Classic Leather 1983 TV Style

Staying true to the original look, the Classic Leather 1983 TV has a vintage look and clean style. The shoes have dropped, donning in a buttery soft all-leather upper with grey detailing, giving the shoe a retro appeal straight from the ’80s. Reebok branding details are found all throughout the upper. The grey notes around the trainers’ tongue and the sole bring the necessary amount of contrast. 

The Reebok Classic Leather 1983 TV is colored up in a clean Chalk and Carbon Grey colorway. As fashionable and trendy as they are, these sneakers are easy to pair with almost anything in one’s wardrobe. A casual and sporty ensemble goes perfectly well with these Reeboks. They look great under jeans, track pants, jogger pants, chinos, leggings, and even shorts. For the tops, a basic shirt, tank top, long sleeves, and even hoodies are great matches for the trainers. 

Notable Features

Featuring a die-cut EVA midsole, it ensures lightweight cushioning and comfort in every step. Also, the sneakers utilize a removable foam sock liner that accommodates orthotics. 

The terry cloth liners on the tongue and inner heel area provide added comfort and make the feet feel plush. At the bottom of the shoes, a durable rubber outsole delivers improved traction and grip.
