The Reebok Aztrek returns with a bang, and a 90s style that retro kids and kids at heart will love. The sneaker comes in different colorways. Initially, it was re-issued with the OG white and solid teal color, and the OG chalk, collegiate royal blue with the bright rose option, but Reebok decided to vary the choices. Also available on the market is the white and black Reebok Aztrek, black and white one with solar yellow accents, and a white option with solar orange. There is also a nice skull grey tint with hints of digital blue; another skull grey option but this time, with acid pink and collegiate royal blue accenting the sneaker; and lastly, a black version with an attractive solid teal and aubergine hint on the upper.
For style, it’s almost automatic that the Reebok Aztrek can be paired with an outfit that somehow embodies the 90s style well. Think oversized shirts paired with shorts for women, while men can rock the kicks with a vintage windbreaker and jeans. Indeed, the possibilities for pairing are endless with this sneaker.
When it comes to what makes the Reebok Aztrek stand out, it has to be the fact that Reebok has chosen to keep everything about the OG sneaker precisely as it is. With a bold upper, the asymmetrical suede overlays and mesh underlays genuinely bring back the 90s vibe, and with the original colorways available, everything adds up, offering authenticity at its best.
The Reebok brand was initially named J.W. Foster and Sons, a family company created by Joseph William Foster back in 1895 in England. J.W. Foster and Sons focused primarily on selling sneakers. When 1924 came around, the brand’s sneaker gained fame when Olympians began wearing its products at the 1924 Summer Olympics.
Fast forward to 1958, and the company decided to go for a name change, ultimately going for Reebok. The name derives from the Afrikaans word “rhebok,” a type of fast-moving African antelope. With that, the brand entered the world of running and introduced to the public superb Reebok quality shoes that would impact the sneaker market and industry well into the new millennium.
Running-inspired shoes defined Reebok back in the 90s is the Reebok Aztrek. This low top was initially released in 1993 and was recently re-issued in July of 2018, and understandably so as the chunky retro craze is definitely back in full swing.
