This classic low-top shoe is offered in both men’s and women’s sizes. For women, sizes range from 5 to 11. For men, the sizes are from 5 to 14 with half-sizes up to 11.5. Buyers, especially those with wide feet,  may need to go up at least half a size higher for a better fit.

Old-school meets contemporary best describes the Classic Renaissance Ice. The clean and classic design coupled with modern details ensures an easy pairing with most casual to semi-casual clothes in your wardrobe. Wear it with simple tees and jeans or shorts for weekend outings. You can also top off your outfit with a streamlined jacket for a smarter look.

Aside from the shoe’s timeless retro look, another notable feature is its Memory Tech foam sockliner which gives it a premium feel and enhances comfort. A Starcrest label woven on the tongue gives a nod to the Reebok Classic Renaissance Ice’s heritage.

Silhouettes in the Reebok Classic line first started out as an athletic footwear but have evolved into what is now called athleisure shoes. It started with the Reebok Classic Leather which was launched in 1983 as a running shoe. It was a performance-based shoe but was created with a style-conscious audience in mind. Since then, the Classic collection has launched various technically-detailed and functional shoes that were able to cross the gap between fashion and sports.

The Reebok Classic Renaissance Ice comes from this iconic line. Its clean silhouette is as timely now as it was when it first launched. The shoe combines tradition, style, and comfort into a neat updated and modern package.

  • A die-cut EVA midsole provides another layer of cushioning for the shoe.
  • The shoe features a beveled heel to improve comfort when walking.
  • The shoe’s construction is made up of a leather upper, rubber outsole, and a fabric lining.
