Reebok Company Overview
Company :

 Reebok International feels comfortable stepping out onto any

surface. It has long been at home in sporting arenas and is a top US
maker of athletic shoes, behind NIKE. In addition to Reebok
sportswear and accessories, Reebok sports Rockport and Weebok
shoes and caters to hockey aficionados through its Reebok-CCM

Origin :

 Reebok's United Kingdom-based ancestor company was

founded for one of the best reasons possible: athletes
wanted to run faster.

 So, in the 1890s, Joseph William Foster made some of the

first known running shoes with spikes in them. By 1895, he
was in business making shoes by hand for top runners; and
before long his fledgling company, J.W. Foster and Sons,
developed an international clientele of distinguished
athletes. The family-owned business proudly made the
running shoes worn in the 1924 Summer Games by the
athletes celebrated in the film "Chariots of Fire."
