Reebok Royal BB4500 HI2 History
Reebok has been in business since the early 1900s. Its founder, a British cobbler named Joseph William Foster conceptualized the Spiked Running shoe, which is the first of its kind. He established the JW Foster and Sons with the help of his family. While the company wasn't completely popular during its initial decades of existence, its products made an impact during the 1942 Olympics.
A grandson of the founder rebranded the company in 1958. From JW Foster and Sons, it changed the name to Reebok, which is a Dutch spelling of the name of a species of antelope. Before the end of the 1970s, the company was acquired by Paul Fireman, an American who introduced Reebok to the United States. After more than a decade after its acquisition, its sales reached almost $2 million.
Reebok released its Classic collection which consists of lifestyle sneakers. One of the shoes is the BB4600, a basketball-inspired sneaker that has been a popular footwear among the younger wearers during the 80s. In 2004, a contemporary reiteration of the BB4600 named BB4500 Hi was released. It pretty much retained the classic design and support features of the BB4600, but with modern materials and color schemes. Recently, the Reebok Royal BB4500 HI2 was released as a direct follow-up to the BB4500 Hi.
