Reebok Classics are among the enduring greats of the sneaker world, deceptively simple footwear with an uncluttered silhouette that's won fans around the world for 40 years. The success of the Classic epitomises Reebok sportswear as a whole, because while Reebok today is a label with a wide reach, there’s an apparently deliberate under-the-radar profile. The long and storied history of this pioneering brand, though, should never be under-estimated, or just confined to one style of sneaker.
It began in a bedroom over a sweetshop in Bolton. A shoemaker called Joseph Foster made some of the world's first spiked running shoes, opening his first factory with his sons in the early 1900s. The name "Reebok" came from an Afrikaans dictionary one of those sons found, it's the Afrikaans word for a southern African antelope, but now so much better known emblazoned on a t-shirt or on the side of a pair of those Classics.
Sizing for all Reebok items is generally true to your usual size, but as with all sportswear, preference for how a Reebok t-shirt, sweatshirt or tracksuit fits can be down to the individual. If you prefer a looser fit, then go a size up, while for a more fitted feel, go a size down. Always remember you can order two sizes to sort out which is right for you in the comfort of your home.
