Good to know

The Rivyx Ripple from Reebok comes in unisex sizing. First-time users of Reebok can finally feel the difference in the leather fit. Securing the fit is also easy with the lace-up closure. The low-cut collar ensures ample ankle mobility.

The Reebok Rivyx Ripple imbibes the similar vibe as the ever so popular Fila Disruptor. Albeit it looks less chunky, its rugged outsole and multi-stitched leather upper are qualifiers in making it a sleeker version of the ugly shoe trend.

The Rivyx Ripple in white from Reebok matches track pants and cropped tops, which is perfect in attaining the 90’s look. The black pair, on the other hand, can transition from casual to dressy with just the pairing.

The mix of old and new is a tried and tested combination that simply works. Luckily for Reebok, its pool of retro silhouettes comes huge. The Rivyx Ripple from Reebok is a result of an 80’s constructed sneaker, and 90’s styling. Translating in today’s terms, those two are the retro classics that seems to be what most cannot get enough of.

With more than 60 years of existence, Reebok has an excellent archive of silhouettes. Its strong heritage in running, comes advantageous, especially during this time that retros are seen everywhere.

One released in the 90’s is the Daytona, a technologically-infused performance shoe. Pulled out from its pool because of the advent of dad sneakers, the Daytona served the fitting inspiration for the resurgence of another model called the Reebok Rivyx Ripple.
