m In February 2005, Reebok launched its largest global integrated
m "I Am What I Am linked all of the brand's marketing and advertising
efforts under the "I Am What I Am" umbrella.
m The campaign encouraged young people to embrace their own
individuality by celebrating their contemporary heroes.
m Celebrities featured in the campaign included music icons Jay-Z, Daddy
Yankee and 50 Cent; top athletes Allen Iverson, Donovan McNabb, Curt
Schilling, Kelly Holmes, Iker Casillas and Yao Ming; screen stars Lucy Liu,
John Leguizamo and Christina Ricci; and skateboarder Stevie Williams.

m "I Am what I Am" became so meaningful and spoke so perfectly to the

essence of Reebok that the following year, it was adopted as Reebok's
brand attitude. "I Am what I Am" is a simple statement, with many
interpretations, but for Reebok it means being proud of who you are. "I
Am what I Am" is for those who have their own views and opinions and
aren't afraid to share them.
m A movement that defies the way brands have presented
and consumers have thought about running.
m Run Easy tells runners it͛s OK to run within their comfort
zone. Run Easy was born out of the conviction that
running has, over time, become focused on
performance, distance and time and as a result, brands
have targeted the serious runner and ignored the rest.
m Run Easy encourages those who run to stay fit or run as
part of an active lifestyle, those who just started running,
and those who are thinking about getting active again.
m With Run Easy, Reebok celebrates and promotes the
more social and fun aspects of running, encourages and
empowers more people to participate, get involved, and
get active at your own pace and have fun while doing it.
