When we think of NFL legends, Emmitt Smith's illustrious career is front and center. Throughout his path to NFL greatness, one could often spot the dynamic synergy between Smith and his footwear of choice – the Reebok ES 22. First donned by Smith in 1997, this signature high-top became synonymous with the maestro’s gridiron finesse. From Super Bowl triumphs to Pro Bowl accolades, the ES 22 has been there, supporting every sprint, dodge, and touchdown.
Nearly a decade since its last public outing in 2012, the famed ES 22 is primed for a much-anticipated return. As teased on Reebok's Instagram, fans and sneaker enthusiasts alike are eager for a nostalgia trip. Promising a faithful rendition, the returning model is set to feature the plush full-grain leather finish, the innovative Hexalite cushioning, and the characteristic turf-ready outsole that made it a standout back in its heyday.
Going the extra mile for authenticity, the ES 22 will revive its classic monochromatic look from the late 90s, offering wearers a slice of football history.
Reebok US has just confirmed the pair's return in it's "Club Blue" colorway for September 15th.
