Who should NOT buy it

Ridding the Classic Leather's upper of dirt can be time-consuming. Consider the PUMA Suede Classic, which has a suede upper, if you prefer something easier to clean.

Also, if you need a sneaker with a tougher shell, opt for the Samba OG instead.

We found this kick extremely comfy. Its cushy padding is rave-worthy.

The shoe's underfoot cushioning and arch support made standing for long hours much more bearable for us.

Persists like a tank

The Reebok Classic Leather proved to be remarkably durable. Our pair has barely sustained any scratches, even though we've been using (and occasionally abusing) the shoe for many months.

Attractive to smudges

Our major gripe is that it can be tricky to keep the white parts of the Reebok Classic Leather clean. As months go by and the shoe gets beaten up and dirty, it becomes even harder.
