Reebok Adds To Retro Trainer Market
An updated version of Reebok’s Classic Leather trainer style spearheads a new rugged look according to the brand.
Widely considered a sportswear staple, the design that debuted more than thirty years ago has been treated to its most recent reinvention, taking on an American workwear theme.
The outfitter’s Utility Pack uses deconstructed uppers built from vintage suede and canvas, as well as cracked side-stripes and an authentic outsole finish.
Now operating as part of the adidas Group, Reebok’s iconic 1980s silhouette maintains the British firm’s Eco-friendly initiative to only produce animal-free products by incorporating accents of vegan tan leather.
Founded in Bolton, the company has spent the best part of a decade working towards creating athletic apparel that is free of animal cruelty. In the past it has been known to cut ties with athletes who have been accused of abuse.
The update is available in four colour ways: red, black, olive and blue. Designers believe the model falls in line with label’s original goal of creating a casual running shoe for “style conscious men and women” that is both functional and fashionable.
Reebok’s Classic Leather Utility Pack is available now at select Reebok Classic retailers around the globe and online at Reebok.co.uk. Retail price starts at £57.
