Reebok Aztec OG History

Reebok Aztec was introduced in the market in 1979 and was dubbed as the brand’s most advanced running shoe ever. This training footwear featured several innovative technologies, such as the dual-density midsole and PORON cushioning, which worked to improve the performance of the wearers by enhancing the overall comfort and cushioning. It also has the replaceable rubber carbon heel and the classic speed lacing system for a customized fit without any hotspots. 

The Reebok Aztec was handmade in England and described as “fantastic, lightweight, and expensive.” The first colorway of the Reebok Aztec OG unveiled was the renowned blue-red-yellow colorway. Many adored this color combination, making this one of the most sought-after pairs in the 70s. Besides, many felt fascinated by the angular-cut found on the rear sole extended up to the heel tab. This element provided additional stability as the heel strikes the pavement. 

Thirty-five years since it was introduced in the market, Reebok relaunched the refreshed version of the Aztec. The Reebok Aztec OG was launched in the middle of the 2000s, using the same material, and techniques used in the original version. The 2015 version of the sneaker came with a booklet that narrates the story behind the style of the Aztec. The brand aims to familiarize the current market with the colorful history of one of its most renowned silhouettes in their archives.
