Reebok x FACE Stockholm Classic Nylon History
Reebok initially launched the Classic Leather in 1983 as a running shoe. It was the first running shoe to make use of premium leather as an upper material and designed for "style conscious" men and women. With a stylish, minimal, and classic design, it's no wonder how, as years passed by, it made its way to becoming more of a lifestyle shoe than a running shoe.
Then came 2015, Reebok and Swedish cosmetics brand FACE Stockholm did a collaboration on some of the former's shoe silhouettes including the Classic Leather. The shoe models were given a new take, with inspirations drawn from FACE Stockholm's make-up and nail polish color palette. The initial collaboration became a massive success that several more FACE Stockholm sneaker projects followed.
One of these collaborative projects is the Reebok x FACE Stockholm Classic Nylon. It took the silhouette of the Classic Leather but redesigned to use nylon with suede overlays on its upper instead of leather.
