Good to know

The Reebok Revenge Plus has a classic low profile, which enables the ankles to achieve full mobility, helping them adapt to swift transitions. Other than that, it also runs on a traditional lace-up system. That lets the user get a custom lockdown fit for their feet.

Furthermore, the Reebok model is a unisex design available in men’s sizing, which ranges from 3.5 to 15 and women’s sizes 5 to 16.5.

Among the most iconic tennis-inspired sneakers, the Reebok Revenge Plus easily pairs up with the casual, sporty, and athleisure style. Its overall clean look is vintage, street-wise, and even preppy. Outfits such as jeans, trousers, pants, joggers, sweatpants, and shorts, topped with tee shirts, hoodies, and polo shirts—these all fit the Reebok Revenge seamlessly.

To cater to varying styles, this Reebok model is available in a variety of bright and dark colorways. Such as white/black, marble/white, light sand/sand beige/white, parchment/chalk/gum, mineral dust/lush earth/white, and more. Depending on the colorway, the Reebok Revenge Plus may have a leather or suede upper.

It’s a sleek, slim silhouette with panels and overlays that look unmistakably Reebok, even at first glance. The precision stitching through the shoe adds subtle touches that round up the design. Moreover, Reebok branding is found embossed in the textured rubber midsole and printed in the heel tab area.

To keep their heritage alive, Reebok launched the Classics Umbrella in the mid-2010s. Reebok dug their archives for treasures and resurrected some major silhouettes one at a time. One of which they brought back to life is the Reebok Revenge Plus, an iconic tennis sneaker in the mid-1980s.
