These vintage trainers are available in men's sizes, which range from 6.5 to 13. The Unphased Pro’s low-cut built makes for nonrestrictive ankle mobility so wearers can adapt quickly to sudden and spontaneous transitions. Moreover, a traditional lace-up closure fastens the upper. With it, wearers can adjust the fit as loose or snug as they prefer.

The Unphased Pro grows beyond its tennis heritage and has come to suit not only sporty, active clothing, but also casual, laid-back attire. Sweatpants, joggers, jeans, chinos all look great on this sneaker. This model all the more gets versatile because it now comes in various colorways to further match one’s sense of style.

These tennis-inspired trainers are not only in available white, like way back then, but in a set of cool colorways, which seem almost conceptual to some. Namely, the OG-Chalk/Dark Green, ESTL-Black/White, White/Grey/Navy/Red, Collegiate Navy/Grey/Blue/White/Gum/, True Grey/Burgundy/Blue/White/Gum, and White/Skull Grey/Navy/Primal Red/Gum.

Just like its predecessor, the Unphased Pro shows off its classic stripes, paneling, and stitching. All of which are unmistakably Reebok. Depending on the colorway option, the Unphased Pro may have a soft terry lining, and its details and overlays may be comprised of suede, leather, and textile materials.

Founded in England in 1958, by the Foster brothers, Reebok expanded and set base in North America in the 1980s, where the company soon made their first major fortune. Paul Fireman, an American businessman and outdoor sports dealer, signed a deal with Reebok to allow him to acquire rights to sell and distribute their products in North America. The contract also included that Fireman could practice his creative freedom over the product when he saw fit.

The 1980s saw the emergence of Reebok when the brand climbed highest in the sneaker industry, outgunning all other leading brands. In the 1980s, Reebok have produced a number of their most iconic silhouettes, such as the Workout, NPC, Revenge Plus, Classic Leather, Club Classic 85, and Aztrek. These became classics in which Reebok would recreate and from which gather cues and inspirations. By doing so, Reebok have kept their heritage solid over the decades. That said, the crisp-looking Unphased Pro was based off a 1985 vintage tennis trainer, the Phase 1 Pro.

  • The EVA sock liner is removable to accommodate orthotics.
  • Reebok branding is detailed in the tongue, sidewall, heel tab, and outsole tread.
