With the retro dad-style shoe trend in full swing, it’s high time Reebok revisit one of their most underrated silhouettes: the Phase 1 Pro.
Originally introduced back in 1985 as a part of the brand’s inaugural lineup of tennis shoes, the Phase 1 Pro was billed as the first leather-constructed shoe that didn’t require any break-in time. Reebok were so confident in the claim, in fact, that they offered wearers a 21-day test run. A dissatisfied customer wouldn’t just get their money back, they’d also get a free can of tennis balls. It’s safe to say that Reebok didn’t end up sending out many cans of tennis balls.
