Reebok Workout Plus JPN uploaded by Moseley
Over the past week or two on the Sneakerpedia Twitter account, we’ve seen a lot of buzz around one of our favorite shoes, the Reebok Workout. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the popular silhouette, Reebok has partnered with a handful of the brightest boutiques in the sneaker community to help. While we’re indeed looking forward to some those upcoming releases, we figured it would be a good time to revisit this multi-sport trainer, which was one of the first training shoes marketed to guys.
Due to its mid-eighties origins, the most popular colorway seems to be the all White upper with the Gum rubber bottom. During that time, having a fresh pair of White kicks meant you were staying ahead of the crowd. While the smooth traditional style of the Reebok Workout is about as classic as it gets, many Workout wearers opted to skip the “H” lace eyelets to give the Workout a more relaxed look, much like many shoes of today are worn with the straps loose.
Over the years, Reebok has reworked the Workout in countless ways. It’s one of the few shoes from Reebok to be continually produced ever since its inception. Thanks to sneakerholic Moseley, we’ve got a handful of the unique makeups on the wiki. A limited edition Japan release and the LS Supreme version featuring rich brown leather are just a couple of the unique makeups. Reebok experimented with full mesh uppers the Workout during the 90’s and made some pretty wild colorways of the Workout in the 2000’s. For their adventure in to the world of skateboarding, they brought on Stevie Williams of DGK fame. One of his first signature shoes from Reebok was none other than the Reebok Workout.
As we look forward to the anniversary releases, we’re hoping for another successful 25 years for the Reebok Workout. If you have any of this classic silhouette in your collection, upload them to your crate and let us know via Twitter.
