Founded in the United Kingdom in the late 1950's and now based in Boston, Massachusetts, Reebok was one of the first companies to test spiked shoes. Named after the Afrikaans word for a type of antelope, Reebok was noticed at a US trade shoe in the late 1970s and would be acquired and distributed over there, reaching over a million in sales within a year.
The company has developed now to become a staple in the athleticwear industry. Creating the first gym shoe in the Ex-Gym Hi, and then onto iconic basketball and tennis silhouettes in the InstaPump and Club C models.
The return of the Beatnik is one of the most talked about releases in streetwear this year. A classic slip on shoes in a variety of materials and colourways with a heel strap that features Reebok branding. A ribbed sole makes these more comfortable than your regular house shoes but are sturdy enough to be worn for a quick trip to the store. Chill vibes in these. Big buy for the Winter months.
Cotton upper, foam sole.
