Ankle stability, as well as supportive fit, can be expected from this lifestyle shoe’s mid-top construction and leather/nubuck upper. Up for grabs in men’s sizes 3.5-13, this sneaker often fits true to size.

Keep your style in check despite the cold weather with the Reebok Royal Complete PMW. Its rather chunky yet lightweight silhouette, which looks great with everyday jeans, sweats and khakis, allows wearers to enjoy the colder seasons without worrying about carrying any unwanted weight. The Thinsulate insulation, on the one hand, promises to keep feet warm without compromising breathability.

Frequently donned in neutral tones, a few models have touches of bright hues like burnt amber on the hooks, tongue as well as the heel tab to make this stunner dazzle even more.  

Aside from its elevated collar that offers added protection against colder climates, the Reebok Royal Complete PMW is also recognized for its heel, toe and “Vector” stripe overlays. These enhance the shoe’s support as well as durability. Its sole unit, on the other hand, which is composed of an EVA midsole and a wear-resistant rubber outsole with herringbone treads is known for its max cushioning not to mention superior traction.

Initially called the JW Foster and Sons Incorporated, this business has been producing spiked running shoes years before global sneaker giants like Adidas dreamt of making one. Despite being underappreciated, over a century old Reebok no doubt has proven it has what it takes to compete with the industry’s juggernauts.

To date, the brand is still perceived as a household name and a recognized brand. Distinguished for their Reebok classic creations as well as innovative silhouettes, the 1982 Reebok Freestyle, the 1989 Reebok Pump and the 2010 Reebok Zig are among the few coveted models of the brand that remain in production.

The Royal Collection, however, is a fairly new addition to the brand’s vast line of lifestyle kicks. Included in this collection is the mid-top Reebok Royal Complete PMW. Work cleat-inspired, its aggressive styling makes it a perfect winter/fall shoe alternative.

  • The removable PU sock liners can be easily replaced with orthotics if needed.
  • Its lacing system consists of 6 eyelets and 2 hooks.
  • Quick and easy slip on/off is achieved with the help of the heel pull tab.
  • Comfort level is increased with the addition of the generously padded collar and tongue.
  • The “Reebok” insignia is displayed on the heel, lateral side, tongue, and undersole.
