Size and fit

The Reebok Classic Renaissance features a leather upper with plenty of overlays that provide soft support for the feet. However, the arch support may be lacking for some. In this case, the use of custom orthotics is suggested. 

The shoe is extremely comfy because of its well-cushioned build. There just needs to be a brief period where the shoe will feel somewhat stiff before it sufficiently breaks in and molds to the foot. 

A five-pair eyelet lacing secure the sneaker to the foot. Lug soles give the foot a secure hold on many surfaces.

Reebok Classic Renaissance History

Reebok’s Classics collection reflects the evolution of the brand’s athletic footwear since its humble beginnings to the athleisure sneakers that are popular now. The Classic line was launched with the Reebok Classic Leather, which the company released in 1983 as a performance-based running shoe. However, this silhouette was different in that it was designed with the style-conscious runner in mind.

The Reebok CL’s silhouette (also known as the Classic Leather) started the Classic collection’s trend of combining functional and technically-detailed shoes that can cross over to the fashion scene regarding style and design.

The Reebok Classic Renaissance springs from this collection of stylish yet practical shoes. It has a clean silhouette that mirrors the shoe’s heritage and gives it a retro appeal.

Additional Info

  • The Reebok Classic Renaissance utilizes a Memory Tech foam sockliner for a cushioned feel.
  • The shoe has a man-made leather upper and stitched overlays.
  • A Starcrest woven label that gives a salute to the shoe’s heritage can be seen on the tongue.
