Bottom line

Springing from a beloved ’90s classic runner, the Reebok Aztrek Double is no ordinary throwback, as it is riddled with a set of modern-day twists. Reebok’s new Aztrek iteration takes its heritage hefty styling a level higher with its extra-thick midsole.

It has a bulkier, more fleshed-out, more sophisticated silhouette. Moreover, its textured upper comprised of faux suede and textile material, which retains the original Aztrek’s asymmetrical design. Underfoot, an EVA-cushioned midsole is there to dampen impact. Finishing the deal, the Aztrek Double is priced affordably at $100.

Good to know

This hefty-looking trainer uses a traditional lace-up closure to provide a secure, custom fitting. Though looking large, it's still a low top, so its collar does not hinder ankle mobility.

The Aztrek Double is a unisex design offered by the Reebok brand in men's sizing, which ranges from 3.5 to 12. To convert into unisex men’s sizing, women should go down one and a half sizes from their standard size. Put shortly, a women’s 5 is 3.5 is unisex men’s sizing.

Though maintaining its ’90s vibe, the Reebok Aztrek Double jives well with modern sensibilities. It is offered in bright pastel colorways, such as Chalk/Paper White/Rose Gold, Sea Spray/Paper White/Silver, and Ashen Lilac/Paper White/Silver.

As it is built atop an enduring classic silhouette, it’s already given that this pair gets to fit and hold many styles from the '90s era up to the present. Think of the ’90s oversized styling—baggy jeans, loose-fit shirts, sweaters, and blouses. Think of the modern-day minimalistic yet flashy fashion—skinny jeans and tapered-down joggers and sweatpants.

Its Aztrek DNA still gives this iteration a bang. If anything, the chunkier sole only accentuates the upper’s vintage pattern and overlays. Unlike the original Aztrek, the Aztrek Double presents a clean, bright look in muted colors, with an unusual metallic Reebok logo branding on the side panels and the heel.

Reebok made a living with the rise of the fitness and running fad that swept the US in the 1980s. Suddenly, everyone became passionate or obsessed about getting fit. Reebok saw this as an opening and then churned out fashionable running and athletic shoes, electrifying the already jittery footwear market. This became the brand’s bread and butter. By 1986, Reebok reigned supreme in North America, toppling leading sneaker brands and provoking rivalry.

Up to the 1990s, Reebok have churned out silhouettes that became classics of an era or sneakers that helped define an era. Such is the Aztrek, a lightweight retro runner first released in 1993. Reebok recently reissued the classic runner in 2018 when the chunky retro sneaker fad was steaming hot and sneakerheads flocked around any latest retro release. Now Reebok being Reebok, the brand pushed the envelope of the Aztrek’s design and made its chunky silhouette extra chunky, which resulted in the Aztrek Double, the brand’s latest Aztrek drop.  

  • The Aztrek Double is unveiled during Reebok’s launch its ’90s-vibed “Sport the Unexpected” campaign.
