Reebok Classic Nylon M History

During the 80s, the popularity of the gym-rat culture was unprecedented. Because of this phenom, shoe companies looked to take advantage, including the UK-based brand Reebok. Before the aerobic trend that took over the country, Reebok is still scratching its way into relevance in the industry. With the introduction of the Reebok Freestyle, a footwear that is marketed for females, the brand successfully welcomed itself as one of the recognizable athletic labels in the 80s.

Due to the success of the Freestyle, it paved the way for more models that are designed for both men and women. One of those shoes that intended to follow the popularity of the Freestyle is the Reebok Classic Leather, which was released in 1983. It is one of the first sneakers to use garment leather. Consumers had a good feedback about it due to the technological features and a street-worthy design. Among the techs that were utilized is the Bi-Density Shock Protection that delivers optimal cushioning for runners.

As time goes along, Reebok’s competitors were able to generate various innovations to support its customers better. As such, the Reebok Classic’s popularity with the athletic community steadily faded. But thanks to its enduring style, many treated it as a casual shoe. Not long after, the casual crowd adapted the Classic as a part of their casual attire.

The Reebok Classic has since then become among the best-sellers of the brand. Numerous reiterations were made in different colorways to adapt to the ever-changing fashion trends. One of the notable reiterations is the Reebok Classic Nylon, and by itself, has spawned a variety of versions. Among them is the Reebok Classic Nylon M, which retains many of the details of the original model.
