The Reebok Classic Leather Pearlized has the exact same materials as the original Classic Leather so expect the same fit and comfort offered by its predecessor. The shoe is generally true to size. It is manufactured as a women’s shoe and runs from sizes 5 – 12, with half sizes available.
The Reebok Classic Leather Pearlized is a classic with a twist. Apart from its already famous silhouette, the shoe’s pearlescent sheen can add a unique element to any outfit. Moreover, the iridescent effect offers an elegant appeal, which makes it versatile enough to be dressed up or down. Pair it with pants and shirt for a laidback and casual look, or go for a dress to complement the shoe’s feminine features when you’re aiming for a more dainty look.
The Reebok Classic Leather Pearlized maintains the simple and classic silhouette from its iconic predecessor. The upper is still made from soft garment leather for support and comfort. Perforation detailing can be seen on the shoe’s toe box. While debossed Reebok logos are placed on the tongue, either sides of the shoe and on the heel. The notable difference between this shoe and the Classic is this has an iridescent effect applied all throughout its upper.
After successfully applying garment leather on the Reebok Freestyle, the brand then used it on a running model for the first time in 1983. That shoe was called Reebok Classic Leather. Even though it was initially released as a running shoe, the Classic Leather eventually gained popularity as casual wear because of its simple design.
Since it was first introduced in the early 80s, the Reebok Classic Leather’s DNA hasn’t been altered that much. Instead, Reebok focused on reaching out to various personalities to collaborate with and put their own interpretation on the Classic silhouette. The list of collaborators includes Kendrick Lamar, Travi$ Scott, and Kid Ink just to name a few.
In 2016, the Classic Leather received a lustrous makeover in the form of the Reebok Classic Leather Pearlized. Reebok and Stockholm’s FACE cosmetics joined forces to add a little bit of glam to the sports world and offered it exclusively to females.
- Reebok used padded foam sockliner for comfort and cushioning in the Pearlized version of the Classic Leather.
- The shoe has die-cut EVA midsole for shock absorption.
- The outsole is made with high abrasion rubber for durability and traction.
