Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Workout, Reebok Classics has collaborated with fifteen top retail partners from around the globe. One of a handful of sneakers that defies its age, the Reebok Workout is a true classic. Originally designed as a multi-discipline shoe, the sneaker provided a cross-gender solution to lateral support as well as a point-of-difference, making a simple shoe an icon. The evolved dual strap concept lending both functionality and an arresting aesthetic.
In 1987 — 25 years ago — the Workout had a slight makeover. Adding extra paneling on the forefoot, the sneaker became more durable for street wear and the Reebok Workout Plus was born.
Today we reveal the first collaboration of the project. Berlin based sneaker retailer Solebox as usual wanted to take a new approach for this collaboration and decided to go with fish leather on the entire upper, the result being an exclusive and premium feel. Also this is the first time ever that fish leather has been used on the iconic sneaker. Along with the rest of the collaborations, the Solebox x Reebok Workout will drop on February 15th, 2012.
More information and images of the sneaker can be found at the Reebok Workout 25th Anniversary Microsite.
