The Reebok AZ 79 was, as the name suggests, introduced to the market in 1979. The sneaker was ahead of its time at that time and shone by its light construction and the built-in technology. The AZ 79 gets its lightness from the choice of materials for the upper. Reebok chose nylon and suede for the upper. This makes the sneaker breathable and the suede helps to cover vulnerable parts. The Padded PORON 4000 insole provides the necessary comfort, which ensures a soft tread and protects the joints while running. In addition, the Reebok AZ 79 has a D-ring lacing system, which simplifies the lacing of the shoes. Reebok has kept the silhouette of the design as simple as possible. Besides the large Reebok logo on the side, the sneaker has hardly any seams or other elements. This gives the sneaker a very timeless look and reduces it to the essentials.
