Joe and Jeff Foster
If there’s any sportswear brand that can demonstrate a history of rocketing highs and collapsing lows, it’s Reebok. Founded in 1958, Reebok was an extension of the J.W Foster and Sons athletic footwear company, one of the very first to utilize track spikes in their running shoes. Hardly considered a sneaker titan, the sportswear brand has made leaps in recent years thanks to the return of the “dad sneaker” which saw it rocket to an all-time high during the ’80s.
adidas acquired Reebok as a subsidiary in a takeover deal worth approx $3.5 billion in 2005.
The Freestyle sneaker was introduced in 1982 as the first athletic shoe designed specifically for women. The hot new trend was aerobic dance and Reebok jumped on that trend. Now a classic, the Freestyle remains one of Reebok’s best selling shoes of all time.
The best way to clean Reebok shoes depends on the specific materials and design of the shoe. In general, it’s recommended to spot-clean the shoes with a damp cloth and mild soap and to avoid using harsh chemicals or submerging the shoes in water. Reebok also offers specific cleaning instructions for some of its shoe models on its website.
Reebok shoes typically run true to size, but some models may fit differently than others. It’s recommended to try on different sizes and styles to find the best fit for your foot.
