Although Reebok was founded in 1958, the company’s history stretches all the way back to Bolton in 1895. Holed up in his bedroom at the age of 14, a boy named Joseph William Foster designed some of the earliest spiked running shoes. Five years later he founded a shoe manufacturing business, which was eventually named J.W. Foster and Sons once Joseph’s sons joined the company. The business became famous for pioneering spiked running shoes, earning them a spot in the book Golden Kicks: The Shoes that changed Sport.
Almost half a century later, two of Joseph’s grandsons formed the companion company Reebok, named after the Afrikaans word grey rhebok, which is a type of African antelope. After an international trade show in Chicago in ‘79, Reebok struck a deal to distribute in the US. By 1981, Reebok had reached more than $1.5 million in sales. Today, Reebok honours Joseph Foster’s legacy by occasionally releasing retro styles like the J.W. Foster Deluxe.
