Snugging the sneaker is most generously handled by the H-strap accessory around the midfoot which promotes stability and securely cradles the foot. Pull tabs on the heel administer a quicker way of wearing the shoe.  

The men’s Reebok Workout Plus Ripple Altered can be purchased in a size range starting from 3.5 to 13. These low top kicks are constructed with D medium width.

Pairing the Reebok Workout Plus Ripple Altered with calf-tight jeans and slim-fitted pants would most certainly do the trick. The ripple design brings more dimension to its flat outsole coupled with loud unconventional patterns on its upper. To top that off, the iconic H-strap strips down the Reebok logo branding and shifts it to other parts of the shoe.

The Reebok Workout Plus Ripple Altered has a lot of buzz going on along its upper. Starting from the outer layer, the sneaker utilizes cleat laces with dotted patterns accompanied by a solid H-strap with a stitched window box. Going deeper unveils an underlay with a large Reebok print across the heel approaching the mid shank. Speaking of the midfoot, printed on the visible EVA midsole is the classic Reebok Vector logo which is also painted at the bottom of the laces.

Timeless in style, the Reebok Workout trainer had traversed all forms of enterprises from the gym to the streets. Originally considered as a hardcore training shoe back in the mid-80s, the Workout nowadays stands as concrete lifestyle sneaker for fellas in the hood. Even in its early years, the Workout had already been remodeled into a mid and low top which turns out was a blessing for all subsequent iterations in the future. 

A few years after its first unveiling in 1984, the sneaker was reconstructed to add more edge to its already hardworking features. In 1987, the Reebok Workout Plus was introduced giving more options for its fans to cop. The image is pretty much the same with its older brother, and to the general vibe intact, the coveted H-strap construction is re-utilized. Designed by Edward Lussier, the H-strap icon is what keeps the Workout as it is up to this day. 

By continually shifting from one culture to another, the Workout Plus imbibes the essence of what that culture provided. In return, the silhouette molds and redesigns itself paralleling the vibe that one subgroup possesses. From the uppers to the soles, the Reebok Workout Plus introduces different material combinations and styles. 

Among its numerous recreations, one iconic collection stood out carrying with it a pivotal message of passion and change. The Alter The Icons Pack consists of a line-up of 10 different styles of Classic Leather, and Reebok Workout Plus unveiled in 2018. The collection was designed by Craig Howard and Xavier Jones, two young artists who follow a theme of “expressing one’s self and having fun while doing it.” 

Enlisted to spearhead the franchise are upcoming young musicians that are dubbed as the future of the enterprise. Included are Jay IDK, MadeinTYO, Saweetie, Lil Baby, and Bodega Bamz which has their own take on advertising the product. The two silhouettes were seen with their past brandings in different positions and various sizes. 

The Reebok Workout Plus Ripple Altered shoes exude in a somewhat eccentric pattern with bold color blocks on its upper. Adding to the outrage was the use of a jagged outsole tooling, possibly to enhance grip but sneakerheads would think otherwise. 

  • Its upper is composed of ribbed nylon and patches of suede materials. 
  • The Reebok Workout Plus Ripple Altered initially retailed at $90. 
  • The insole features the “Alter the Icons” print on the heel portion.
