Reebok Ventilator: Pure 90’s running

The greatest brands in the sneaker scene are aware that their classic models are one of their biggest assets. Sometimes they decide to give them a twist by adding new technologies, colors and materials, like Nike did with the Ultra Moire. Reebok, on the other hand, hit the nail on the head releasing a legendary model. Last Saturday they reissued the Reebok Ventilator with the original colourway, matching it exactly to the first release.

The Ventilator were first released to the market in 1990, and they were designed for fast and light runners. Their outer sole provided perfect traction, while the Hexalite technology enhanced impact absorption to make each step more comfortable.

The breathable mesh panels on the sides give this model its name: Reebok Ventilator. In addition, yet another detail made this model superior to others at the time: the visible archbridge on the center greatly improved motion control.
