Reebok’s history traces back in 1895, founded by Joseph William Foster under the name J.W. Foster & Sons. Although it initially focused on producing cycling shoes, Reebok soon entered the running market under its current name. The company went through numerous innovative breakthroughs in the market, such as the orange suede World 10 in 1969. These breakthroughs led to new opportunities for the company, including distributions of its product line in the United States.

Although the initial growth was slow, Reebok took its chances in tapping on the booming aerobics industry back in the 1980s. It released silhouettes like the Freestyle, the Ex-O-Fit, and the Classic Leather, which all gained its following. The popularity was not limited to the casual athletes but also made waves out on the streets. 

Even when trends changed over time, and it encountered ups and downs in between, Reebok launched the Classics division, rekindling the past and catering to the new demand for the retro look. Through this division, it brought back the classic favorites but with some modern twists. One of these is the Reebok Torch Hex. 

The Torch Hex is a shoe with a running style and a retro look. Whether out on the gym or the streets, this sneaker provides comfort and durability all day long.
