Reebok Classic Leather TU History
The Classic Leather came out in 1983 right after the Reebok Classic. Reebok designed it to be a running shoe yet rejected the popular trend of running shoes at the time which was being too technically-detailed. However, despite the shoe’s simple lines, it was an excellent runner that performed as well or better than its running counterparts.
The classic silhouette contained air vents on the toe box for breathability and used the Bi-Density Shock Protection System which gave it stability. It also utilized garment leather as the material for its upper—and, in fact, was the first to do so.
The Classic Leather TU brings back 98% of the heritage classic’s authenticity (the silhouette and the premium leather) while adding 2% modern embellishment such as the sidestripe which has been given a metallic burnish.
- The Reebok Classic Leather TU has a die-cut EVA midsole, garment leather upper, and a high-abrasion resistant rubber outsole.
