Reebok Presents Classic Vintage Limited Edition

Over 20 years ago, Reebok revolutionized the fitness world with the Ex-O-Fit and Classic Leather athletic shoes. This season she repeated the legendary sneaker in the Classic Vintage limited edition. However, this collection by no means implies a simple re-release of models from the 80s. The sneakers are not only recreated according to the model of their "predecessors" down to the smallest detail, the designers also specially gave them a "shabby" appearance in order to most faithfully reproduce the changes that occur with the shoe during the wearing process.

Two famous silhouettes represented in the collection - Ex-O-Fit Hi and Classic Leather - are distinguished by subtle elements that can be appreciated only by the most sophisticated fans of Reebok sneakers: as if glue had slightly leaked and turned yellow from time to time in the seams; high-quality leather, of which the top is made, has the effect of abrasion on the toes and a wrinkled texture. Following the tradition of those years, the edges of the foam lining were left untreated and open, and all labels of earlier models were reproduced with great accuracy, including nylon stripes on the tongues of sneakers. The logo of the 80s is made in the form of a rectangular window with the inscription Reebok with an increased interval between letters.

In the era of the prevalence of bright colors and crazy geometric shapes, the use of completely white leather allowed these sneakers to gain instant popularity and become a real hit of the 1980s. The Classic Vintage collection takes us back to those glorious times, and although the new sneakers are made these days, they seem like samples from the very first produced batch, lost and rediscovered. Even the box in which these sneakers are packed completely repeats all the typography and branding of Reebok of that time, and the famous British flag adorns its lid.

 Launched in 1983, the men's Ex-O-Fit Hi sneaker gained popularity thanks to the so-called cross-training fashion. Suitable for a variety of sports training, including weightlifting, racquetball, volleyball, aerobics, and race walking, these versatile running shoes have been the preferred athletic shoe for men. Recreated in the new Classic Vintage collection, the Ex-O-Fit Hi is a complete replica of those times.

Reebok developed the Classic Leather sneaker model in 1983, taking as its basis a model of running shoes with a nylon upper. The main goal of the designers was to combine functionality and stylish appearance in one model, which was highly appreciated by consumers. In the new collection, the Classic Leather men's model has the same removable polyurethane foam insole for extra cushioning and a soft leather upper.
