Who should buy the Reebok Classic Leather 1983 TV

This pair is a great choice if you:

  • Want something classic with versatility and style
  • Search for a lightweight pair as this features a die-cut EVA midsole that ensures lightweight cushioning and comfort in every step

Runs small in size, consider sizing up

These cool, throwback sneakers are available in unisex sizing so the majority of 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 sneaker fans noticed that the shoes run a little small, so sizing up is recommended. With a traditional lace-up fastening, using flat laces, a more secure and custom fit is achieved.

Bring back the vintage vibe on the streets

Staying true to the original look, many loved how the Classic Leather 1983 TV has a vintage look and clean style. Sneaker fans noticed that it 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. 

With Reebok Classic, styling outfits won't be a problem

The Reebok Classic Leather 1983 TV is coloured up in a clean Chalk and Carbon Grey colorway. As fashionable and trendy as they are, the majority of its wearers commented that 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.

Lightweight and comfortable in every step

Featuring a die-cut EVA midsole, many noticed that the pair ensures lightweight cushioning and comfort in every step. Also, several loved how it utilizes 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.
