Reebok Workout Plus History

It was in 1987 that the Reebok Workout Plus was first released and became one of the brand’s classic silhouettes. The origin of the shoe was the brand’s other classic shoe the Reebok Workout. With a few iterations on the Reebok Workout silhouette thus the birth of the Reebok Workout Plus. The shoe was originally made as a multi-purpose footwear and its design was centered on lateral stability and individuality.

In 2011, the Reebok brand released a Vintage Collection which included the Reebok Workout Plus, Reebok Ex-O-Fit Hi, and the Reebok Classic Leather. The all-white collection showcased a white leather upper with some hints of grey. Each of the three silhouettes presented a vintage detailing on them which included bits of yellow throughout the shoes giving off that “old-school’ vibe.

By 2012, on the Workout Plus silhouette’s 25th anniversary, the Reebok brand teamed up with the Swedish denim label, Cheap Monday, and both worked on giving the Reebok Workout Plus a fresh look. The shoe shows a two-tone denim upper construction with both black and grey sections. Hints of white complement the new look of the shoe and they can be observed on the tongue branding, side logo, and on the sole.

Also that same year, another collaborative release was done by the brand as also a part of the Reebok Workout Plus silhouette’s 25th Anniversary Edition. It was the Reebok Workout Plus x Titolo. The shoe is covered in a brown suede upper with some hints of blue and cream. The blue and yellow laces, D-ring eyelets, and some flecks of blue on the white sole complement the shoe.

By 2013, Reebok released their Keith Haring collection with a set of sneakers that includeed the Reebok Classic Leather Mid, Reebok Freestyle Hi, and the Reebok Workout Plus. Each of the shoe shows the iconic design of hand drawings on the leather upper of the shoe.

Reebok teamed up with Kendrcik Lamar in 2015 along with a couple of UFC Superstars. This special release of the “Premium Wearability” series features two colorways of Rush Red and Collegiate Royal for the Reebok Classic Leather and Flat Grey and Black for the Reebok Workout Plus. A high-end ripstop Condura, pigskin nubuck overlays, and flow molded logo treatments covers the upper of the shoe. A white sole complements the whole look of the shoe.

By 2016, Reebok teamed up with Russian designer Gosha Rubchinskiy. Four different collaborative footwears were released under this Gosha Rubchinskiy x Reebok collection and mostly focused on Reebok Workout Plus and Reebok EX-O-Fit High. Two pairs of each of the silhouettes were released showing a tonal colorway in either Black or White in a premium tumbled leather construction. On the side panels of the shoe the PACCBET branding can be observed and the traditional Reebok branding can be seen on the tongue of the shoe. The matching tonal laces and rubber midsole finish the look.

Reebok Workout Plus Style

The Reebok Workout Plus is a classic shoe that represents versatility. The shoe basically goes well with different yet appropriate outfits. Whether you go training, have a casual walk around town, run errands, or go out with friends. The shoe goes well with a pair of appropriate jeans.

Fit & Sizing

The fit of the Reebok Workout Plus is basically the same from its origin, the Reebok Workout. It comes in men’s and women’s sizes. The men’s sizes are from 8 to 15 while the women’s is from 4 to 11. The H-Strap in the midfoot offers very good hold for active users.

Notable Features

Reebok’s patented H-Strap in the midsole carries so much weight in this shoe. It is basically the best giveaway to the shoe’s true lineage. Besides giving the shoe its distinctive feature, it also adds superb support as it is still in some ways the training shoe of old.
