Reebok Classic DMX Series 1200 shoes are offered in men’s sizes which range from 8 to 13. But the dad shoe trend need not be lost on women. They can wear these kicks as much as they want provided they size down 1.5 sizes from their usual.

The shoes are true to size but are somewhat narrow. Something to keep in mind if you have wide feet. The low-cut profile is not too low and still provides ample support for the feet while providing freedom of motion for the ankles.

Contrary to popular opinion, wearing chunky shoes dones’t necessarily mean you have to look like a dad—not that there’s anything wrong with that. You can look absolutely cool while rocking these kicks. Try pairing your Reebok DMX Series 1200 black shoes with black jeans and a black long-sleeved cotton shirt for a casual, monotone chic look. Reebok DMX Series 1200 shoes in white go well with khaki pants, a shirt in the same hue as the pants, and a denim jacket with a contrast lining for a “nonchalant” but trendy vibe.

Despite being more than a couple of decades old, Reebok’s DMX technology is still just as relevant today as it was groundbreaking back then. Reebok DMX Series 1200 sneakers have a comfort level that still impresses users, and most of that is owed to the moving air technology that cushions each footstep and stride.

An excellent complement to the shoes’ internal perfection is their stylish appearance. The layers upon layers of material on the uppers were craftily arranged to provide a 90s vibe while managing to depict speed and movement. The chunky soles that accompany the shoes bring stability and support, and at the same time enhance the ‘dad shoe’ look.

Reebok Classics is a lifestyle shoe division under the Reebok brand. This range consists of shoes that were once used for sport but have now become leisure wear. The Reebok DMX Series 1200 belongs to this line.

In 1997, Reebok DMX running shoes (or DMX Run) were launched. They were the first to feature the brand’s DMX technology. This revolutionary tech made use of air to provide cushioning and energy return by having the air run through connected pods. The tech was so successful that Reebok later applied it to Allen Iverson’s second signature shoe—the Answer.

In 2018, Reebok decided to revive the DMX tech courtesy of the DMX Series which included models such as the DMX Series 2000 x Swizz Beatz, DMX 1600, and the DMX 1200. The 1200, in particular, featured full-length DMX cushioning. According to Craig Howard, designer of the 1200 and 1600 models, the DMX Series 1200 shoes were inspired by their 90s DMX archive. He wanted to create the illusion of speed and movement in the uppers while maintaining a very retro look.

DMX Series 1200 sneakers were equipped with the Daytona DMX’s tooling. The midfoot shanks were especially thrown in to provide lateral stability and support. Tons of overlays and a busy styling created a throwback design that carries a definite 90s vibe.

  • Reebok DMX Series 1200s are priced at $100.
