Reebok International Limited is a British producer of athletic footwear, apparel, and accessories and is currently a subsidiary of Adidas. The name comes from Afrikaans/Dutch spelling of rhebok, a type of African antelope or gazelle. The company, founded in Bolton in 1895, was originally called Mercury Sports but was renamed Reebok in 1958. The company's founders, Joe and Jeff Foster, found the name in a dictionary won in a race by Joe Foster as a boy; the dictionary was a South African edition, hence the spelling.

Freestyle and Ex-O-Fit success

1985 Freestyle and Ex-O-Fit hi-tops advertisement

Reebok surged in popularity in 1982 after the introduction of the Freestyle athletic shoe, which was specifically designed for women and came out when the aerobics fitness craze started. Not only was the Reebok Freestyle popular as athletic wear, but also on the streets as casual wear because of its comfort and styling. As a result the Freestyle became an icon of the 1980s fashion scene with hi-top versions (including two velcro straps at the top) and colors including white, black, red, yellow, and blue. Reebok continues to produce the Freestyle to this day as it is popular with cheerleading, aerobic dancing, the gym, and other consumers.

Following the height of the Freestyle success, Reebok also introduced a popular athletic shoe for men, called the Ex-O-Fit. Similar to the Freestyle, it came in low-top and hi-top versions; however, unlike the Freestyle hi-top with two velcro closure straps, the Ex-O-Fit only had one strap. One of the designers of this early footwear was the founder's son, David Foster.


The Pump

In the late-1980s, the company introduced the Reebok Pump line, which used an air bladder, inflated by means of a small pump integrated into the tongue of the shoe, to hold tightly to the wearer's ankle. This allowed for more aggressive maneuvering without injury, but also became a popular fashion element. Around 1993, they introduced an air transfer system which was incorporated into the sole of the trainer. It is now included in several hockey skates, such as the RBK 9k and the RBK 5k. The Reebok Pump is a line of athletic shoes that was extremely popular in the early 1990s. ... For a review of anatomical terms, see Anatomical position and Anatomical terms of location. ...

For the 2007/08 season, the National Hockey League introduced a new uniform system league-wide, designed and manufactured by Reebok and called Reebok Edge. The new uniforms include new fabrics which are said to repel water and sweat more effectively. Most fans have reserved judgement on the new system, whilst some have been outright hostile, especially over the cost of replica jerseys which are set to be much more expensive than traditional jerseys. Like the fans, most players have reserved judgement, but some have commented that the Edge system's improved water repelling abilities leads to gloves and skates becoming saturated and uncomfortable during play.
