Before I start this OPINION is on the 'Reebok shop' itself and nothing else, since I can't find anything on the actual shop on dooyoo! Read on and enjoy... A few years back now 'Braintree shopping village' opened but I only visited the place for the first time last year and since then I have been going back on frequent visits. The place is called 'The Braintree Freeport Designer Village' and has many decent designer stores including 'The Reebok Shop'. I know for a fact that they're aren't many 'Reebok' shops around in this country, I think there's one in Somerset which I've never visited but living relatively near to Braintree, this NEW 'Reebok Shop' was going to get visited! The store was pretty big and looked very impressive, everything was set out out nicely with lots of space which was great because I'm not very keen on shops which are all cramped up. The store was set out in the relative sections, there was the clothing section split into further catergories of womens, males and childrens clothing, there was also a footwear section, again stocked for everyone and there is also a surprisingly large section for accessories such as hats and bags etc. The clothing section took up the most room in the store, with the childrens and womens items nearest the entrance to the store and the male items further away, nearer the back of the store. There was a huge variety of 'Reebok' named clothes which came in nearly every size possible. The best thing was though that all the prices were less than what you'd expect to pay normally. You could buy childrens and teenagers plain T shirts with 'Reebok' printed on the front for around a fiver and then jumpers and jackets that you would usually expect to be around a ridiculous price of £50-£60 that were less than £20!!! These items were for people of all generations and stocked in all sizes. The
footwear section took up quite a lot of room in the store too but was mainly stocked up in the right hand cornor of the store, most of the items of footwear were on display in order of sizes which I liked. You just had to visit the section of your shoe size and choose a pair of shoes. Again the prices were lower which was fab and half sizes were available. You could buy trainers which could either be running trainers or casual trainers, football boots, astro turfs, studded boots or Moulded boots and then 'Reebok' sandals and footwear for the summer. I picked up a pair of Gold and White Reebok classics in size 5 and a half for only £20!!! These trainers are very popular and are usually sold at prices of around £35-£60 in this specific size.~I was very impressed and the trainers have lasted as well. Lastly there was the sports accessories all 'Reebok' named of course, section. This was displayed all around the walls and around the tills and paying area. It stocked bags, hats, wallets, socks and sporting underwear as well as certain sports accessories such as real leather footballs, goalie gloves and shin pads for football, golf equitment for golf and so forth. Again all these items were reasonably priced and looked great quality. This store was brilliant and definitely worth the visit, although I only got a jumper, a few T-Shirts and a pair of trainers I'll definitely be going back for more! (And I am next weekend infact!) Thanks for reading, hope it was ok me gabbling on about ther shop! ~M~
I don’t really care what I look like and am not one for spending hundreds of pounds on designer clothes. Don’t get me wrong, I like the look of top branded clothes but being a student I don’t really get a lot of choice with the money I have (or don’t have). I have been wearing Reebok clothes for years now and I feel that they are the best for sportswear. I think Reebok have a wide range of clothes on offer all of excellent quality. I am prepared to spend a fair amount of money on a Reebok top, as I know it will last for ages. I especially like Reeboks essential range for ladies. It is great quality and great value for money. I own Reebok shorts, tracksuits, sweatshirts and tops. I also have Reebok trainers that are comfortable and have stayed in good condition for a while now. For you my readers I have taken part in an experiment conducted by myself. I have categorized my sports clothing into three categories Quality, Design and Price. In each category I have highlighted how my Reebok clothing performs. The Quality I am still wearing Reebok clothes that I bought over four years ago. One example is my white Reebok essentials fitted t-shirt. I have worn this over and over again to play sport and to go shopping or go to university and it is as good as ever. I estimate I have worn this top at least 100 times and it has survived wash after wash. I have also got two other t-shirts in this design that are different colours. In fact I am sat here wearing my green one and it hasn’t lost any of its colour. The Design I have fashionable Reebok clothes that I wear when going out with my friends and other Reebok clothes that I keep mainly for sport. I have got some fashionable shorts and also some football shorts. I think Reebok quality have some great designs with their clothing, my fiancé has a really nice tracksuit that looks too good to do sport in. I have got a great baby blue hooded jacket that is really nice and loo
ks fab over a strappy top in the summer. The Price I think Reebok is fairly cheap especially if you shop around in some of the cheaper sorts shops such as Sports Soccer. I manage to grab fitted t-shirts for just £9 which is great value considering the amount of wear I get out of them. My latest purchase was two sleeveless tops for £14 each. They are both identical and I liked them so much I bought one in each colour. My trainers were quite cheap as well at only £30. In comparison Reebok is cheaper than other sports brands and in my opinion they are the best. I find that Reebok clothes fit me really well and I am always looking around to spot Reebok bargains. I like the wide range of colours Reebok do including my favourite, purple. If you have never bought any Reebok clothes in the past, I highly recommend it, as it is great value for money and lasts for ages. The best place to purchase Reebok clothing I think is Sports Soccer (discount sports store) or Argos Additions if you prefer shopping out of catalogues. Grimsbygal
I have been buying Reebok classics for so many years now, along with my estimate of most of the population! They normally range from £40 - £60 depending on where you shop and which type of classic you buy. They have been making quality trainers for very many years now, and that makes me believe they produce the most quality products, trainers, on the market. The classics have a rounded shape at the front, and the very distinctive Reebok logo along the side. This not only gives them great publicity, but also makes them great to look at. They are very comfortable to wear on your feet, and are quite good to run in, which in my opinion is what they are made primarily for as they are shaped with a curve ant the front, which is exactly what their and other running shoes are shaped like at the front! In my opinion they may sound a lot of money, but are great quality, and last for ages...and also in my opinion are great value for money, is get purchasing!
I think that Reebok, is the top sports brand going. I have 2 pairs of Reebok classic trainers and they are the great, they are very comfatable, especailly if you have a wide foot, like myself, they also last for years. Also the clothing range is great. I have 3 Reebok jumpers and each time i wash them, they come up like brand new. The same with the jogging bottoms. The value for money is great also, i Know that the trainers range from £30 to £55. They also have a range of sportswear for babies too!!!!
Reebok, is still one of the top sporting brands, and I'm happy to say that their prices seem to be dropping as well. Out of all the various sporting brands Reebok seems to be the one on the forefront again. If Reebok can maintain the quality of their goods and drop prices why can't everyone, I have one pair of their trainers which I have had now for 4yrs, I put them in the washing machine and their as good as new. Great fashion, great prices and great style.
This is a great name and the products they produce is good and the quality] well I think they are I mean you look at Nike and they are better but at lest they are cheaper. That means that people and parents who don't have a lot of money can afford it, also now a days kid's at school get tessed and this way they won't. The things that they come out with are very good standards and I think all makes like this should lower they price so that it is cheaper then they will get more people buy it then that mean's more profit!
I have the amazing good fortune to live in one of the few places remaining in the UK where fashion and trendyness does not matter and you can wear just about anything you want without causing comment. However, some habits are still deeply ingrained so when I needed new trainers, I went straight for the Reeboks. There was a pretty poor selection (the disadvantage of the blissful town that time forgot is its limited shopping potential) and I was feeling rather poor (student life!) so I got the cheapest pair of Reeboks that I could see - £40. This was three years ago and I have to say that these trainers are amazing. I do step aerobics three times a week in them and have played numerous games of squash, tennis, badminton in them not to mention the sporadic burst of enthusiasm for the gym that they have had to put up with and these trainers still feel comfortable, look great and fit perfectly. All of this is depite the fact that I put them through the washing machine about once a month. Previously I have bought more expensive gimicky trainers with air lift and pump action (something like that anyway!) and have been really disappointed with them. They have been OK as a trainer but the features that you pay the extra for have always been a bit of a let down. But I was very pleased with the more basic trainer. I think they add all these gimicks to push the price even higher and to ensure that people change their trainers regularly to keep up with the latest trends. I don't agree with any of this but if consumers fall for it, you can't blame the manufacturers for going along with it (after all, if we refused to pay the prices, they would soon bring them down!) So as an overall fashion victim concept, I don't really rate Reebok at all. But in terms of a basic, comfortable and long-lasting (and therefore relatively cheap) trainer, you can't go wrong
I bought myself a reebok tennis/sports dress to wear on holiday. When I first bought it it fitted really well and was the ideal beach / casual dress for the summer. But after wearing it a few times and a couple of washes it shrunk and bacame mis-shapen. It is now far to short to be decent even on holiday and to be perfectly honest it looks appaling on because of its odd shape. Luckily for me I got a discount on the dress so I didn't pay as much as I could have but even so for the money I certainly would not have expected it to do that. And if the dress was designed to be worn whilst playing sport then it certainly wouldn't have stood up to more than one game of tennis!!! I can't help thinking that companies like reebok are compromising quality for increased profit.
This is the latest of my ancient dooyoo ops to get updated and another which I'd rather have deleted! I don't think I want to leave the original op intact or even faintly recognisable in remnants scattered across the page...I think in fact, I'd better settle down for another complete re-write! Reebok is a well known brand worldwide, but how many people know the history behind the name? In 1895 a man named Joseph William Foster, who was a keen runner for his club, Bolton Primrose Harriers, decided to create his own spiked running shoe. The fame of the "Foster" shoe spread and Foster began making them for other local athletes. This grew as a family business which was finally given the name "Reebok", after a light-footed gazelle, in 1958. In the 70's and 80's the business grew faster than a Foster shoe could run and became a global business headquartered in Boston Massachussetts while the UK base is in Lancaster. Reebok now manufacture almost any kind of sportswear you could want. The quality is good and the brand name one that even fashion-conscious teens will be seen in. Personally all my trainers are and have been Reeboks as they seem to make shoes with a wider fit than most trainers. I've never had a pair of Reebok trainers which I haven't been very happy with and which have given me less than several years of comfortable and stylish service running, walking, dancing and in the gym. Reebok are constantly researching and designing new ways to incorporate protection, strength and durability into their sports shoes and under the FAQ on their website (www.reebok.co.uk) you can find out what terms such as hexalite or DMX-IPak mean. Useful if you understand the technology and want to know more than the usually very poorly informed assistants in the sports shops will be able to tell you. I can't resist quoting the explanation for the DMX 2X here! "This is spec
ifically developed for walking. Two pods provide moving cushioning, however rearfoot air-transfer chamber (pod) extends farther back into heel. A medial post has been added for stability. Forefoot pod features flex grooves to improve forefoot flexibility." And we just think of them as trainers! There have been a number of well-publicised cases of Sports Wear and brand name companies using child and sweat-shop labour in the production of both footballs and garments. Reebok say their record on human rights is exemplary and have a written code of conduct for factories as well as guaranteeing not to use child labour in the production of their footballs. In addition they have committed a sum of $1,000,000 to the "educational and vocational needs" of former child workers in the Pakistan football industry. I've always found this brand to be reliable both for clothing as well as footwear and for both adults and kids. we've bought and used Reebok for many years and have stayed very satisfied customers. I can't think of a single problem with a Reebok shoe or item of clothing in the many years we've been buying them. Not something I could say of many brands! Finally, I almost left the original op below just for historical interest, but when I re-read it I found it so truly substandard that I couldn't bring myself to do it even for fun! Sorry ;-)
Over the past three years I have got through six pairs of some very expensive Reebok trainers. I don't think they make them like they used to. After wear Nike trainers and having them fall apart quickly, I vowed never to wear Nike trainers again. That's why I ended up with wearing so many Reeboks. I don't climb mountains or run around rough terrain in my trainers but they seem to fall apart quite quickly. My trainers are suppose to have the super air cushioning system DMX, which you can feel work for the first two weeks, then it disappears, when it has stopped or just given up I don't know, but if you paid for something which stops working after two weeks I wouldn't be the happiest person on the planet.
