Reebok Workout Plus MU History
The Reebok Workout was first introduced in 1987 and eventually labeled as one of the brand’s timeless sneakers due to its style and features. It is a reiteration of the Reebok Workout which was famous among the gym enthusiasts during the 80s. In addition to its all-purpose aspect, its design allows for lateral stability and support. While it was meant to be used for working out or other intense activities, the shoe had become more popular as a casual sneaker.
The company released its Vintage Collection in 2011, which comprises of the Reebok Workout Plus, Reebok Classic Leather, and Reebok Ex-O-Fit Hi among others. This collection essentially exhibits an all-white colorway, with a small amount of other colors on various areas. All of the shoes under the collection also feature a touch of old-school due to the presence of yellow shades, effectively giving off a classic vibe.
On the 25th anniversary of the Workout Plus in 2012, Reebok collaborated with a Swedish apparel brand Cheap Monday to reimagine the classic silhouette. This collaborative sneaker features an upper that is made from two-tone denim with shades of black and grey colors. There are also hints of white along the branding on the tongue, sides, and sole that enhances the visual appeal. Another collaboration was done in the same year, and it is called the Reebok Workout Plus x Titolo.
Various collaborations have been done ever since its 25th anniversary, such as a special edition Workout Plus with the influences of Kendrick Lamar and a few UFC athletes. The sneaker was released in 2015. In 2016, the brand teamed up with designer Gosha Rubchinskiy to launch the Gosha Rubchinskey x Reebok, which includes a revamped Workout Plus silhouette.
Looking at its evolution over the years, it is safe to assume that the Reebok Workout is one of the best that the brand has to offer. Fast-forward to 2018, the timeless sneaker got another reiteration. The Reebok Workout Plus MU. It retains the original model’s design with modest colorways.
