Size and fit

The Reebok Phase 1 has a low-profile design, which enables the ankles to have full mobility in each stride and, as a result, adapt well to rapid foot movements. Besides that, this model runs on a traditional lace-up closure that locks the foot in as loose and as snug as the wearer prefers. Furthermore, these Phase 1 vintage trainers are available in men’s sizing, which ranges from 4 to 13.

Reebok Phase 1 Style

The Phase 1 is among those tennis-inspired athletic sneakers, whose designs have become sleeker and more versatile, matching a variety of clothing and personalities. This Reebok vintage sneaker looks smart and casual enough to be worn anywhere, be it at work, a night out, or for a walk around town.

Its style is quite the perfect match to a pair of jeans and a tee shirt. Since its heritage is tennis, it also suits athleisure wear. Clothing such as sweatpants and joggers are excellent matches to the Phase 1. Furthermore, these Reebok vintage shoes are available in a variety of colorways, such as white/ collegiate navy/red, and white/matte silver/gray/red, sea spray/crushed cobalt/white/gum, black/trek gold/white/gum, and chalk/blue/Mars dust/teal.

Notable Features

Its most striking appeal is its quintessential Reebok silhouette. One glimpse is all it takes for one to know it’s a Reebok sneaker, even though it doesn’t present the classic stripes on its sidewalls. The subtle, but revealing, details are enough, such as its iconic rubber toe cap that rounds up the silhouette with sheer authenticity.

Reebok Phase 1 History

In the mid-1980s, Reebok had once reigned to the top of the sneaker industry ladder, beating all other competing brands. During this decade, Reebok had churned out unforgettable silhouettes—from running, training, to sports sneakers—which soon became classics.

Among those iconic models is the tennis sneaker Phase 1 Pro, often regarded as the most underrated Reebok sneaker. The Phase 1 is a loyal iteration of the classic, proudly paying homage to its heritage.       

Additional Info

  • It has a removable EVA Foam sock liner to accommodate orthotics.  
  • Depending on the colorway, the Phase 1’s upper may be comprised of either leather or suede.
