That history of sneaker production makes Reebok’s modern-day offerings even better. Many of those casual sneakers, like the Club C, were originally made for tennis but they’ve since been bumped to casual wear. In their place, Reebok makes sneakers fit for tough movement, like running and cross-training in the gym.
Reebok’s classics have made the way for some of the most versatile casual sneakers, easy to pair with leggings and an oversized tee like Emrata and Jennifer Lawrence, or dressed up with tailored pants and a turtleneck, a la Sophia Richie. The comfortable, supportive sneakers are truly some of the best walking shoes for women and best walking shoes for men.
Reebok is best known for its classics line of sneakers, many of which rose to popularity in the ’80s and early ’90s. Reebok was one of the first brands to make aerobics sneakers for women, and the brand has kept that old-school, nostalgic aesthetic in the sneakers today. Now, they’re considered some of the best no-frills kicks on the market. Club C Sneakers are some of the most comfortable sneakers to wear on the daily. They work well with wide-leg denim, tailored trousers, and parachute pants. Add a simple white tee to any of those and you’ve got yourself a solid spring outfit. Gigi Hadid knows the drill — she styled the Club C sneakers with a cropped tee and added an open shirt for good measure.
Reebok has also been on top of its fashion collaboration work, pairing up with icons from all over the fashion industry — Vetements, Maison Margiela, Pyer Moss, Victoria Beckham — and celebrities like Shaq, Cardi B, and Ariana Grande. We’ve done the research to select the top Reebok sneakers to buy now. Check them out below.

The Reebok Club C 85 is one of the best-selling reebok shoes of all time, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. These began as tennis shoes in 1985 but they’re now an everyday shoe for any kind of style. As a person with a white sneaker addiction, I can tell you these are my most recommended pair for most people, fashion-minded or not. I tie the laces, tuck them in, and slip them on. For spring and summer especially, they can’t be beat.
What Reviewers Say: “These are WAY better looking in person. So clean with any outfit, and I love how great they look. Whatever team was responsible for this particular design should be given a raise. I wish I could buy 5 more pairs.”

Cons: Some reviewers say it doesn’t always hug the back of their feet
Reebok Classic Leather Legacy is another one of the classic, retro-inspired Reebok shapes. You can wear them just as you would the Club Cs, but they have some more support if you’re standing all day or have a job that requires being on your feet, such as a nurse. The high-abrasion-resistant rubber outsole helps ensure stable traction, too.
What Reviewers Say: “After a couple of days wearing them, a pain I had been struggling with in my foot went away, like magic. I used to swear by Reebok classics when I was in school in the late 90’s. Super happy I have seen the light again. Classic minimalist urban style, perfect arch support, and an exceptionally comfy toe-box make for a fantastic experience! You could wear these 30 years ago and look good, and you could wear them 30 years from now and look good. Timeless.”

Cons: Runs big
Reebok Zig Kinetica 2.5 is a great shoe for running. It’s lightweight and is made with Reebok’s Floatride Fuel cushioning, that’s soft on the foot but still responsive once it hits the ground. For a running sneaker you can wear walking all day, this all-white pair will do the job well.
What Reviewers Say:“This shoe is a great, nice style. It has good construction, boost on the sole, and they’re nice and comfortable. I would recommend to select half size down to your true size feet as this can run large.”

What to Look for in the Best Reebok Shoes for Walking
Cushioning: The best cushioning depends on what environment you’re wearing those shoes in and how supported you like to feel. The Club C, for example, is a super soft shoe but it’s rather flat. Something like the the Leather classic has some more support on the underfoot.
Purpose: If you’re just looking for an everyday shoe that looks good with your outfits, dont hesitate on some of the less technical but very cool classics. If you’re doing a whole lot of walking, look for something that has more performance elements for support.
Foot type: Most Reebok shoes are neutral — not too narrow, not too wide. Most styles are unisex, so if you have a smaller or more narrow foot, you might find there’s more room in the toebox, which is actually great for longer walks. If you’re looking for walking shoes for high arches or walking shoes for plantar fasciitis, the more technical running sneakers will save you and it’s easy to slip in orthotics to the classics.
