Fit & Sizing

The Reebok Revenge Plus MU is available in men’s sizes. It has a classic low-top profile, which allows the ankles to retain full mobility for quicker transitions.

The Reebok Revenge Plus MU is a casual low-top shoe having the 1980s tennis court style.

Founded in 1958 by English brothers Joe and Jeff Foster, Reebok was already making a big name selling spiked pumps throughout the 1960s–1970s. But the early 1980s was when Reebok sneakers stormed the US sneaker industry and began hitting their prime. By 1986, Reebok became Northern America’s #1 premier athletic footwear brand. This decade saw Reebok churning out iconic silhouettes, such as the Workout, Newport Classic (NPC) and Revenge Plus (later shelved).

In their mid-2010s comeback, Reebok launched their Classics shoes division to keep its 1980s heritage striving. The brand dug back to their archives, brought back their retros one at a time. Among which was resurrected (in 2016) was the Reebok Revenge Plus, a design built from the NPC. The Revenge Plus was later stripped down to abide with tennis dress codes and renamed the Club C. One of the newest iterations of the line is the Reebok Revenge Plus MU.
