Reebok, believe it or not, has been around for more than a century considering that the shoemaking traits were passed on from the founders’ grandfather way back in the late 1800s. The company was established by two brothers named Jeff and Joe Foster in 1958 which didn’t set off successfully at first but with the help of a certain American entrepreneur, had achieved limelight status by the 1980’s.

Paul Fireman, an outdoor gears salesman, had found a weak spot for the then-struggling runner producer when they met at a trade show in Chicago in 1979. Three years later, he acquired the North American distribution rights for the brand. The subsidiary company was to be called Reebok USA Ltd.

During the three-year phase of selling UK-based designs, somewhere in between was a shake-up on the footwear producer’s catalog. In 1981, Reebok introduced the Freestyle which was a high-top sneaker intended for women doing aerobics. The growing deficit of the shoe market to cater to females was the primary premise of Freestyle’s boom, and girls, women, and even men flocked to their stores to purchase a pair. Soon after, Reebok was not only a runner name but became a legend among lifestyle wear.

The success of the Freestyle was followed by several iterations which diversified the Reebok footwear line. The company introduced a handful of models including the Ex-O-Fit, Classic Leather, and Classic Nylon. The Classics were bound to tackle the tracks while the Ex-O-Fit was a male counterpart for the Freestyle. Consumers loved the addition of the three and were soon seen copping a pair of the Classic Leathers or the Classic Nylons. In time, the two running-inspired shoes sparked an unprecedented cult following which stretches for decades into the future.

As of current, the Reebok Classic Nylon has been continuously revamped into many special editions and vast colorway options. One of these is a textile version named the Reebok Classic Nylon Mesh which is drenched in pastel colorways to accentuate subdued color tones.

  • Underfoot cushioning is provided by a die-cut EVA midsole.
  • High abrasion rubber outsoles with an innovative treading administer ample grip and traction.
  • The skull grey colorway has a different mesh pattern which features diamond shapes instead of the traditional mesh design.
  • Reebok branding can be seen at the vamp window box with Union Jack logo, tongue, heel tab, and outsole.
