Reebok Classic Nylon Color History

Reebok was initially established as a companion company of J.W. Foster and Sons in 1958. The name comes the African rhebok, a type of antelope. In 1979, the sub-brand was discovered by American businessman Paul Fireman at a trade show. He brought Reebok over to the U.S. from England and made it into a successful brand.

With its popularity in place, Reebok created high-performing kicks for athletes. The brand even designed the first athletic shoe made specifically for women – the Reebok Freestyle for aerobic exercise. In the 1980s, the brand expanded to include footwear for tennis, running, and basketball.

In 1983, the label first released the Reebok Classic Leather, catapulting the brand into the limelight amidst the fitness, aerobics, and running trend of the 1980s. It was a running shoe with a thick outsole and a full leather upper. The minimalistic design and the all-white colorway made the sneaker an immediate hit.

As hardcore runners didn’t like the leather upper of the Classic Leather, the brand released the Reebok Classic Nylon in 1987. It featured a more lightweight and breathable feel owing to its nylon upper. It also garnered much attention due to its attractive style.

Over the years, the model's popularity was such that the brand had released more editions, creating the Reebok Classic Nylon series. The collection includes the Reebok Classic Nylon Color casual shoes, a vibrant alternative to the minimalistic appeal of the original. They are offered in attractive colorways for a fresh and modern appeal.

These kicks balance a clean look with well-loved heritage details. It has a timeless upper made up of nylon and leather that shows off the iconic contrasting side stripes. It’s the same old shoe with a colorful upgrade, made for the fashion-forward men and women of today.
