The Reebok Classic Leather Old Meets New is exclusively available in women’s sizes that range from 5 to 10.5. This shoe generally fits true to size although some have said that it feels narrower than normal size.
A classic with a twist, the Reebok Classic Leather Old Meets New is aptly named with the upgrade in its style. A patterned patch is placed on its midsole that adds fashionable and subtle detail to your overall look. Pair it with jeans, shorts, or joggers for a laidback day or dress it in skirts and dresses for a more feminine option.
The shoe's upper retains its heritage use of leather material that is both time-tested and durable. Perforation detailing is placed on the pair's toe box area for added ventilation. It also features the brand's Bi-Density Shock Protection system for added comfort and ride. Lastly, the shoe's outsole is made of gum rubber, which adds grip, traction, and visual enhancements.
After the success of the Reebok Freestyle, the brand decided to utilize leather as a new pair's upper material and dubbed it the Reebok Classic Leather. Released in 1983 by Reebok, the shoe was developed with fashion-forward men and women as its target market. Its minimal design and sleek profile became the driving force behind its popularity and was widely regarded as Reebok's first real success story.
With the Reebok Classic Leather's appeal, it inevitably made its way to the streets and became a casual kick staple. The shoe's success was very evident and undeniable that it became the Reebok’s most iconic sneaker in its collection.
In its more than thirty years of existence, different artists, designer, brands, and personalities have put their own interpretation of this shoe. Some of the more notable collaborations of the Classic Leather shoes are with Palace Skateboards and artist Kendrick Lamar.
