Reebok Classic Leather SG History

The Reebok Classic Leather was launched in 1983 as a running shoe. It had a simple, clean design as opposed to most running shoes out at the market during that time which had many technical details. However, even with its simple silhouette, it was purely functional and helped athletes reach their max performance. Further, the leather upper gave it a stylish and elegant look.

The shoe’s silhouette was a hit, not only among sports enthusiasts but with the lifestyle crowd as well because the model blurred the line between style and performance. The footwear was especially popular in the UK where it became part of their sneaker culture.

More than three decades from its first release, the Classic Leather continues to dazzle sneaker lovers. And Reebok has responded by releasing various iterations and colorways for this model. The Reebok Classic Leather SG (Seasonal Gum) is yet another iteration of the classic. In this newer version, the OG gum sole is brought back while the upper is updated with a pigskin nubuck material.

Reebok Classic Leather SG Style

The Reebok Classic Leather SG is a good-looking shoe that can handle most casual to semi-formal situations. Wear it with jeans or shorts and a polo shirt or long-sleeved Henleys for casual outings. For smarter occasions, chino pants and long-sleeved polos will do the trick. Top off with a blazer.

Fit & Sizing

The Reebok Classic Leather SG is offered in men’s sizes only. The shoe fits men with sizes ranging from 4 to 13. Half sizes are offered as well. The shoe has a thin tongue which might make a snug fit more difficult to achieve, but the footwear does have an adjustable lace-up closure that could make up for this.

Notable Features
