The label`s innovative inventions have contributed to a revolution in the sports product market and have earned the brand international fame.
A sports article manufacturer with British roots
Reebok`s history actually began in Great Britain in 1895, when the Foster family from Bolton founded the company J.W. Foster and Sons. By 1924, the family business was already providing running shoes for the athletes taking part in the summer Olympics. In 1958, two of Foster`s successors founded a company named Reebok. 21 years later, Paul Fireman, from the US, purchased the company`s distribution rights in North America and began to offer the brand`s shoes to the USA public. After passing from hand to hand, today, Reebok International Limited is the daughter company of adidas and is enjoying more international success than ever.
World renown advancements
Reebok is famous for its genius ideas and infallible nose for trends. In 1982, at the height of the aerobics wave, the company launched a women`s freestyle running shoe. It didn`t take long for women to be wearing the model at the gym, on the running track and everywhere else too! The beautiful, comfortable model followed the 80s fashion and became a very popular street style shoe. Reebok contributed both low top and high top sports models to the aisles of shoe shops around the world. Reebok`s 1989 Pump technology is legendary. Led by Paul Litchfield, Reebok engineers designed a shoe with an integrated pump that would fill air chambers in the shoe to enable the footwear to adjust better to the shape of the foot. Athletes Michael Chang and Dee Brown were absolutely blown over by the pump models.
