From the ground up

After Solebox, mita sneakers and Starcow, next in line to have collaborated with Reebok on the Workout Plus to celebrate the sneaker’s 25th anniversary is New Jersey’s Packer Shoes. They kept it clean and classic, a perfect match for the understated sneaker by Reebok.

“When we were approached by Reebok to be involved in this project we wanted to stay true to the shoe — an understated classic. Trying to do too much takes away from the authenticity of what the Workout Low meant to the market when it was at its height. If you didn’t have a few pair of Workouts along with Phase 1s, your wardrobe wasn’t complete.

The gum bottom is what made it — the contrast and the way it all blended together made them a classic from the corner to the club. Maroon suede and gum haven’t made it yet — hopefully this one adds to classics…”

The Packer Shoes x Reebok Workout 25th Anniversary releases along with the other retail collaborations on February 15th, 2012.

More info and detailed images of the sneaker are available on our dedicated Reebok Workout 25th Anniversary Microsite.
