REEBOK - IT STARTED WITH THE SPIKES
A momentous invention that would change the foundations of athletics forever was made over a candy store at the end of the 19th century. In Bolton, England, Joseph William Foster fiddled over his father's business on a new type of athletic shoe. He screwed thorns to the soles in order to transfer the force from the legs more efficiently, the adhesion to the ground should be improved. The beginning of a unique story. Foster founded a company called Foster and Sons, whose special running shoes spread like wildfire.
WITH REEBOK SHOES FAST AS A GAZELLE
Later, in 1958, Foster's grandchildren took over the company - and renamed it. The reason for this was a simple dictionary that Joe Foster had won in a youth run. While leafing through it, he found the word Reebok - the South African gazelle: fast, clever and graceful - an optimal name for his young and determined company. Reebok quickly achieved world status with the help of expansion into America in the seventies and always at the pulse of time. For example, with the women's shoe Freestyle, launched in 1982, which became the icon of the aerobics and fitness wave and thus one of the best-selling shoes of all time.
Reebok shoes also became famous through the legendary Pump models in the 80s. Air chambers in the shoes could be filled with air by means of a small pump in order to adapt the shoes optimally to the foot. Then as now, Reebok knows exactly what you need to get the most out of your performance. Our goal is always to be unique and to remain steadfast. Nothing should stop you or throw you off track. least of all your material. The best example of this is our cooperation with CrossFit. As an official partner of CrossFit, Reebook continues to demonstrate its keen sense of current trends and is committed to a healthy body as the basis for a long life.
