The low top sneaker was constructed in a D medium width, which was basically the same as the original release. Men can avail the model in full size runs that range from 5 to 13.

The running-inspired sneaker can be used in polarizing clothing options, from sporty looking attires to smart casual dress clothes. Its tonal colorway coincides with most jeans and can also double as training footwear. Its overlays parallel its streamlined appeal that is complemented by the iced outsole for a cool-looking attitude.

Pigskin suede accents strategically cover the mesh underlays of the Reebok Classic Nylon Tech, and the combination provides the shoe's stability and support. Reflective elements on the perforations at the heel cap provide visibility during low light conditions. Lastly, the Iced outsole offers grip and traction which completes the chilled-out image.

Introduced in 1983, the Reebok Classic was one of the Reebok models that was redesigned into numerous colorways with spontaneity. Before its release, several Reebok iterations hogged the market sales which are accounted mostly by the Freestyle. The popularity of the Classic gradually grew through time, which was brought up by underground fans resurfacing in the more recent years.

Remaking the sneaker model into different material variations was not a product of the present and in fact, dates much closer to its initial release. In the early 80s, the Reebok Classic was produced in two variations: Leather and Nylon. During this time, Nylon was preferred by runners who utilize the shoe for training and to some extent, for long distances. Its utility spread out across the globe and reached different groups which evolved into athleisure footwear.

In 2016, the Reebok Classic updates its materials and incorporates an upgraded mesh for more breathability and a cozier, lighter feel. The Reebok Classic Nylon Tech maintains its forefather's initial conformity, but with a contemporary gist.

  • The EVA midsole which provides cushioning and shock absorption were processed in a Die-cut manner for fast and efficient manufacturing.
  • The insole consists of a padded foam which adds comfort to its ride.
  • The upper utilizes a breathable mesh for moisture and sweat control.
