Reebok Classic Leather PG History
The predecessor of the Classic Leather PG is the iconic running shoe of the early 80s—the Reebok Classic Leather. The silhouette became renowned for its clean lines and its superior performance as a runner. It had perf details on the toebox for ventilation, used Reebok’s Bi-Density Shock Protection System for stability, and featured an upper made of garment leather for a luxurious look. The elegant style of the shoe would endear the Classic Leather to the fashion world and catapult it to its status as hip-hop culture icon.
The Classic Leather PG (Perfed Gum) would retain much of the DNA of its ancestor. However, the silhouette has been updated with a gum outsole and full surface perforation for enhanced breathability. Reebok promises to continue with more shoes under the Classic Leather collection.
- A die-cut EVA midsole provides the shoe stability and cushioning.
- The perforated top enhances foot breathability.
