Noted for her sophisticated yet fashion-forward style, it’s no surprise that Sofia Richie has found a versatile footwear companion for her spring wardrobe with Classic leather trainers from Reebok, which she has been seen wearing several times over the past two months. And for just $80, the sneakers are a smart investment.
Most recently, Richie paired the sleek white sneaker effortlessly with slightly oversized black pants and a bold orange turtleneck. Styling her hair in loose waves, she accessorized the look with black sunglasses and a black belt with gold hardware. The look mixed business-casual pieces with simple sneakers, creating a kind of high-low look you’ll want to recreate yourself.
While the sneaker style debuted nearly 40 years ago in 1983, the brand has reissued the iconic silhouette with a “slightly refined and evolved design” for Spring 2022. The shoe features a sleek white leather upper and a beige rubber sole. Unlike the original shoe style, the reissue features a “slimmer toe shape, improved vamp, and improved two-piece midsole,” according to the Reebok product description. The design also features a foam covered sock liner, thin tongue and non-bulky collar for a plush feel on the foot.
Notably, the style includes Reebok’s Union Jack logo, which was phased out in 1986. The version of the logo, which is a nod to the brand’s British Lancashire roots, is often featured on reissued products from from the Reebok archives.
The 23-year-old star wasn’t alive during the sneaker’s reign as a staple silhouette when it was originally released in the ’80s, but she’s part of the star-studded team that revived the style’s popularity Revamped Reebok. Reebok’s classic leather sneakers have also been seen lately on celebrities like Meghan Markle, Joe Jonas, Sydney Sweeney, Luka Sabbat, Reese Witherspoon, Katie Holmes and many more.
Richie was spotted in the shoes last February in Los Angeles, wearing the reissued Reeboks with light wash straight jeans, a black top and an oversized white button up top.
