This UK-born brand, Reebok, started their roots as the very first suppliers of rubber-bound footwear in the late 1800s. Initially established as J. W. Foster and Sons, the concurrent sportswear giant transitioned to running in the 1950s and has been waving the Reebok flag ever since.
From their roots of running, Reebok took a metamorphic turn when its distributing rights were bought by Paul Fireman alongside a California sales rep named Angel Martinez. Martinez noticed the growing disparity for female aerobic footwear during a visiting session to her wife’s gym class. He pitched the idea to Fireman, and the Reebok Freestyle was born in 1982.
Ever since its debut, the Freestyle had experienced numerous renditions and mergers with sneaker boutiques throughout the world. One of those was a specific Japanese brand named Moussy as seen in the Reebok Freestyle Hi Nova x Moussy.
