Reebok’s history stretches all the way back to 1895, starting life as Mercury sports out of Bolton. Having been renamed ‘Reebok’ in 1958 the company gained noteriety in the performance market through several new sport ventures and co-signs with some of the worlds top athletes. The 90’s were huge for Reebok, seeing the brand move firmly into the lifestyle market as their Classic silhouette became a firm favourite with the UK youth at the time. To this day Reebok continue to introduce new styles both in the lifestyle and sports market, as well as rework some of their most iconic styles.
