Good to know

Sporty footwear deserves sporty clothes hence leggings or jeggings should most likely be an option in partnering these Reebok Classic Nylon Cold Pastel sneakers. Due to its versatile appeal, the low top can also be matched with numerous outfits starting from pants to shorts. Accentuating the summer look can be achieved with skirts and sundresses.

The sneaker is almost dressed up in tonal pastel colors which gives it a seasonal flair. Specific colorways of the Reebok Classic Nylon Cold Pastel include Eucalyptus/Chalk and Pale Pink Chalk.

The incarnation of the Reebok Classics franchise dates back to 1982 when a particular aerobic specific sneaker materialized out of thin air. The Reebok Freestyle, the UK-born brand’s creme de la creme product, was transcribed from the drawing board and brought to life by Angel Martinez. Martinez, with the help of Paul Fireman, of course, connived to assemble a sneaker made intentionally for the burgeoning deficit of women’s footwear.

 The massive success of the Reebok Freestyle triggered the onset of subsequent iterations. In only a year, Reebok had been raking money from their hugely feminine consumer base which eventually helped finance the release of other models. In 1983, a promising collection was unveiled tapping all other athletic platforms. The line-up included the Ex-O-Fit, a male counterpart of the Freestyle, and two Reebok Classics one in leather and another in textile. 

Focusing more on the textile version, the Reebok Classic Nylon was one of the lightweight silhouettes that had touched the face of the Earth, during its prime, so to speak. It was equipped with a duo of ground-breaking tech, during that time, namely the BiDensity Shock Protection System and air vents. As the years progressed, the sneaker served less of a runner but more of an icon for lifestyle.

After decades of its existence, the Classic Nylon was reinvented again this time in the glory of blunt pigments. The Reebok Classic Nylon Cold Pastel was drenched with colors resembling candies thus making it more of a sneaker for women than that of the gents.

  • Its uppers utilize a nylon and suede combination.
  • For its cushioning, a die-cut EVA midsole was employed.
  • A rubber outsole with Reebok Classic treading administers exceptional grip and traction.
