It was also noted as the first leather sneaker to offer right-out-of-the-box comfort with no need for a break-in. To hype up to its legend, Reebok offered customers a twenty-one-day trial period. During which, customers could freely return the Phase 1 Pro if it left them unsatisfied. No questions asked. Besides a refund, customers also got a free can of tennis balls.
