When brothers Jeff and Joe Foster, inherited their grandfather’s shoe business in 1958, they renamed the company “Reebok” from a South African dictionary in reference to a gazelle called “Rhebok”. Continuing their grandfather’s pursuit for the best athletic, hand-made shoe, the brothers featured their new line of sports shoes in an international trade fair where they met Paul Fireman. Being an American sporting goods distributor, Paul saw the brand’s unique design and asked for a distributing license to expose Reebok to the American market, to which the brother’s agreed. In a span of 3 years, Reebok earned more than $1.5 million from track shoes in the American market alone and became the go-to brand for athletic and streetwear in the 80s.
