Do You Think Castro Will Make Athletes Wear These at the 2016 CrossFit Games? Reebok Re-Releases The Classic Aztec OG

August 22, 2015

Today Reebok is re-releasing one of their most classic shoes, the 1979 Aztec. These probably won’t make an appearance at the Games next year, but we have a deep appreciation for dope retro fashion over here at BP, so we felt like this one was worth sharing!


Flexible, lightweight and the ultimate in comfort, the 1979 Aztec OG. A stitch for stitch remodeling of this iconic shoe makes this bring-back a collector’s favourite. In the film, the Co-founder of Reebok, Joe Foster, re-visits the factory in Bury where the original Aztec was produced and explores the deep heritage and monumental impact the shoe had back in 1979, as well as discussing the importance of today’s eagerly anticipated return of the sneaker. Joe’s personal recollections are complimented by a modern take on the story from Crepe City’s Morgan Weekes, who details the relevance and importance of the shoe to the current sneaker community. 1,895 pairs produced to celebrate 120 years of the brand. Available 22.08.15.
