Way back in the mid-90s, footwear design was experiencing a boom cycle where too much was never enough. Reebok approach to the Rapide, however, went down the opposite path. The sleek structure of the Reebok Rapide is all about minimizing materials while optimizing what remains. Lightweight nylon mesh dominates the upper, providing flexibility and airflow, while synthetic micro-suede is used sparingly to create a secure structural overlay. Burring the lines between brand heritage and contemporary sensibilities, Reebok’s archival high-achiever hits the mark for todays discerning lifestyle sneaker.
