The styling and the hope of catching a pair of them for a discounted price… and oh, how I do love a major price reduction.
I mean, we all do, right? Even within the last day, I saw a pair of Reebook’s on my list go from $80 to $54.97! I love it when that happens!
Just this past year, I wore a pair of Reebok’s to the mother-son 80’s dance and man, were they comfortable. With my see-through burgundy lace socks, I hit that dance floor 80’s style! That specific pair was the Rebook Classic Leather Shoe. As you can see, my son Teddy is killing it in our pic and I am having way too much fun with my hands up in the air.
Note to Audience: I was one of a few dressed up and so with my wild blue eyeshadow and “Guns N’ Roses” ripped t-shirt with a neon green mesh bathing suit underneath… you can bet I got some “what are you wearing” looks. However, the Reebook’s kept getting compliments!
I mean… I had way too much fun putting this ridiculous look together!
On a recent trip out of town, I was out shopping and ran into a pair of Reebok’s Club C 85 Vintage kicks in Chalk / Paperwhite / Glen Green. One of my best friends was with me and she could see my utter excitement. I didn’t want to go too over the top because I had tried to pick up a pair before and they were sold out. This time though, they had my size and I purchased those babies full price. Something about the color combo with the Glen Green just got me. Don’t worry… I will resale them soon!
In the past year, I have picked up a lavender pair of Reebok’s with silver accents on the back (on Poshmark), a light blue pair with pink accents (on Poshmark) and now… well… I have my eye on a Cold Grey / Flash Red / Chalk combo that happens to be on sale (WHAT???... I know!) and The Smiley Classic Leather shoes in Core Black / Cream White / Stinger Yellow (which I plan on asking for as a birthday gift.) Am I going a bit overboard? Well… maybe. Let’s not say yes… just yet…
You see, it is all in the styling. I believe that you don’t have to have a pair of Golden Goose’s for $600 or even a preloved pair of Golden Goose’s to look stylish and chic. As Gigi Hadid shows in her pics, you can wear a pair of Reebok’s and literally look like a style star.
Here are some outfit inspirations taken from Gigi’s Reebok street style that can go straight in your closet (or out of your closet) and out the door…
Wear a black T-shirt with a black leather jacket and jeans and throw on a pair of the black Classic Leather Sneakers ($80)
Try a oversize cardigan with a V-neck white T-shirt and some holey jeans and a pair of White Classic Leather Sneakers ($80)
My Personal Favorite: A light gray sweatsuit with a long wool coat over it, paired of the Club C 85 Vintage Sneakers ($85)
Pull your hair up in a messy bun and grab your favorite vintage band T-shirt an oversize cardigan and some faded denim and put on these Reebok Classics ($54.97)
My Ultimate Favorite: Throw on a pair of leather pants with a T-shirt and fluffy oversize coat or cardigan and these Reebok Classic Sneakers ($90)
Grab that Midi flowy skirt in your closet and pair it with an oversize knit turtleneck sweater and add these Classic Leather 1983 Vintage Sneakers ($65)
If you don’t have a corduroy button down, get one! Pair it with some leggings or Khaki rolled-up cargo’s and a cool vest and put a pair of these Eames Classic Leather Sneakers ($120)
Now… let’s go Reebok it UP!
