The Classic Leather IR is an exclusive for men shoe that fits people with sizes ranging from 7 to 13. Some half sizes are also offered. The leather upper gives structure to the shoe while the lace closure provides an adjustable fit.

The Reebok Classic Leather IR would look just as home with a pair of crisp trousers as it would with casual, rugged jeans. The bright details of the low-top shoe bring pep to any outfit, and the sophisticated silhouette does not need any more dressing up. Understated clothes would bring more attention to the footwear.

The simple, clean design of the beloved classic running shoe updated with a modern twist is the Reebok Classic Leather IR’s most eye-catching feature. Also notable is the shoe’s comfort which is just like its predecessor’s.

The Reebok Classic Leather IR contains the DNA of its predecessor—the Reebok Classic Leather, a running shoe born in 1983. The silhouette gained recognition for its simple design as opposed to the technically-detailed running shoes of the time. Despite the simple silhouette, the Classic Leather was a superior running shoe that performed just as well as, if not better than, its running counterparts.

The original model had air vents for breathability, and it utilized the Bi-Density Shock Protection System to give it stability. It was also the first running model to use garment leather for its upper. This glove leather upper gave it a luxe look which would endear it to the hip-hop and fashion culture as well as the world of track and field.

The Classic Leather IR, which came out July of 2014 as part of a limited edition “Reflective Pack,” updates the look of the retro silhouette with a very contemporary reflective detailing that gives it good visibility even during the night. Reebok uses the same slim style and comfort the original version was known and loved for.

  • The Reebok Classic Leather IR was part of the Reflective Pack along with the NPC II and Workout Plus.
