Looking to update your fave street style accessory? Look no further than the decades-old sneakers that have graced the feet of countless stars.
We’ve seen a lot of sneaker trends come and go over the years.
From the ubiquitous Converse High Tops to the more recent ugly-chic ‘dad sneaker’ styles, a lot of different options have briefly burst onto the scene before being unceremoniously pushed out in favour of a newer evolution.
But there’s one style that Hollywood can’t seem to kick, with stars coming back to the timeless design again and again.
While we’re at it, this is the yoga brand celebs can’t get enough of. Plus, we’ve found the internet’s most flattering bike pants.
Despite being introduced way back when in 1983, celebrity appreciation for Reebok’s classic leather sneaker has yet to wane. Actresses Ruby Rose and Kate Bosworth and singer Rita Ora have both been spotted traversing New York City sporting the shoes.
Over in Los Angeles, model Emily Ratajkowski paired hers with a cute dress for a TV appearance.
Gigi Hadid even appears to own the style in multiple shades to suit every outfit, and we don’t blame her – when you find the perfect design, it’s worth the investment.
Just as the name promises, the Reebok kicks feature a classic and clean low-cut design that can be dressed up or down for any occasion from a post-workout brunch to a night out with the girls. A leather upper provides durable comfort, the padded foam sockliner ensures things are soft and supportive on the inside, and the slightly platformed design absorbs shock while keeping things lightweight.
In the words of Reebok, the iconic shoe “hits that sweet spot between timeless fashion and time-tested cushion”.
They’re available in a range of shades and men’s, women’s and unisex styles, but the two recurring celeb favourites keeps things timeless with an all-white upper and tan-coloured sole.
