User reviews:

This women’s exclusive is available in sizes ranging from 5 to 10. The Reebok Freestyle Hi Spirit’s lace closure allows the user to tighten or widen the fit. The velcro straps give a snug fit while the high-cut design provides more ankle support.

The Reebok Freestyle Hi Spirit is surprisingly easy to match with clothes. A casual look can be achieved by pairing the shoes with jeans or leggings. To glam your style up a bit, throw in a long, streamlined jacket, or you can do a Miranda Kerr and pair the shoe with a short bodycon dress and a cardigan.

The Reebok Freestyle Hi Spirit has an understated design but eye-catching bright colors. This perfect blend results in an ultra-stylish shoe that you can take anywhere. Though the shoe does not boast of any new technology, it is still very comfortable due to its foam sockliner and soft leather upper.

The Reebok Freestyle Hi Spirit is a sneaker based on that 1982 classic that set the trend among shoe companies across the world—the Freestyle. The Reebok Freestyle was among the first athletic footwear designed exclusively for women and was created to tap into the aerobics that was sweeping the fitness world during that time.

The Freestyle had a garment leather construction, a terry cloth lining, and a flexible split inner sole. Reebok managed to blend style and performance perfectly well in this shoe. A year later, a high-top version of the Freestyle came out which incorporated double velcro straps. The newer silhouette provided more ankle support for people doing fitness workouts.

The Freestyle line took off spectacularly, largely due to being marketed towards women when most sports shoes were being produced solely for men. Throughout the years, the company continued to produce new colorways for the Freestyle, or the 54 11s as people called them in reference to the footwear’s $54.11 price tag after sales tax. Some of the colorways, particularly the Banana Yellow and Bubblegum Pink, became iconic on their own.

The Freestyle Hi Spirit first came out in July of 2014 in an “Excellent Red” colorway. A year later, a new pack came out, this time in monochromatic shades such as green, purple, yellow, and tan.

  • An abrasion-resistant rubber outsole, molded EVA foam midsole, padded sockliner, and leather upper make up the Reebok Freestyle Hi Spirit.
