Reebok has a long history of speed. Its ancestor company, J.W. Foster and Sons, developed the first running shoes with spikes and quickly began making shoes by hand for a long list of international athletes. In 1958, two of the founder’s grandsons decided to form a companion company, and Reebok was born. Taken from a species of African gazelle, the company’s name made it clear that Reebok would be moving full speed ahead. And that’s exactly what they did, sprinting onto the American market in 1979.
Reebok began catering to female athletes almost immediately, starting in 1982 when they released the first athletic shoe designed solely for women. The Freestyle™ met the needs of the aerobic dance craze and also recognized that women were extremely important to the world of sports and exercise.
Today, ladies are still a priority for Reebok. Their wide array of running shoes utilizes technologies like Reebok Zig — a colorful zig-zag sole pattern that provides a smoother ride and increased energy return — and RealFlex, which utilizes 76 flex-friendly nodes that adapt to your movements as you run, jump and stretch. If you prefer a slightly slower pace, try Reebok’s collection of walking shoes. They provide a women’s-specific fit and foam pods to keep you comfortable while also toning your lower body. Even if you’re searching for the perfect casual shoe, the Reebok collection at Lady Foot Locker is the place to go! With the eye-catching colors of the Zig Nano Sport Slide or the sport-inspired silhouette of the Classic RealFlex Racer, there’s no way you can go wrong.
