New (Old) Reebok logo

Recommended Posts

Great, the delta logo was awful and lacked all character. Everyone knows the vector logo and that’s what they should keep for all time, and maybe only update the wordmark as needed.

Great change, that traingle logo was horrible with a bland wordmark.

I'd may consider reebok's now when getting sneakers, tho last time I tried them on, they were pretty narrow.

Don't care what the logo is, I just want them to go back to making basketball and cleated shoes.

In my opinion, Reebok is wise to revive the vector logo (a clearly more memorable emblem than the delta pattern), but is foolish to bring back also the rather 1970s-like (e.g. Starsky & Hutch) wordmark that accompanied the vector design.

The 2008-current wordmark isn't terrible and might've worked with the return to the vector.

The soon-to-be-replaced delta was bad, but man. 2000-2005 really was a dark time logo-wise.

Finally they ditched this bulls%#t crossfit logos. Now let's start to making basketball shoes again and I'll be happy. I still love to play in my old crumbling Question's.

The wordmark sucks. That era of typography should stay dead. The vector is what matters, and it’s good it’s back.

Didn't they just change like 5 Years ago away from the Vector? Oh well. Personally, Reebok look best with the Current Former Wordmark with the Vector, like they had from 2008-2014.

I never liked the vector. Just looked ugly to me.

I agree, especially on NFL jerseys. It was always my least liked logo of the big shoe companies, but I do really like it for nostalgia purposes and they basically threw all of that out of the window when they switched to the "delta".

I always thought the Delta was never a good fit to be the Reebok brand logo moving foward and definitely not a good replacement to the classic vector logo.

 

Bringing the old one back was the right call.

While it works as an identifying mark on shoes, it doesn't work in any other context.  It was pretty clearly designed to be put on shoes, where the three ends can touch the ends of the shoe.  Seeing it in a truncated form just doesn't work for me.  They should just keep it on shoes, but have some other kind of logo as a company mark.  While the delta was certainly not a strong logo, something like that, which could be used on the tongue of shoes, maybe the heel, and on merch (including jersey sleeve ads if they ever get a football deal again), would have worked.

 

  I feel the same way about adidas' stripes - their three-pointed round 'vintage' logo works way better than the three-striped triangle.

They could go back to the Union Jack they had before the vector logo. But I see why the moved off it. I personally have no issues with the logo, it’s very distinct and you can easily tell it apart from any other logo, maybe add a frame to the logo similar to the one used in the NFL but that’s about all that’s needed.

I doubt the UJ is trademarkable.  Even if it was, it wouldn't work in the way I'm thinking (jersey sleeves / upper chests, like where the Swoosh is.)

 

I coulda sworn they had a unique logo (Separate from the vector and UJ) back in the '80s, but that history graphic argues otherwise.

Is this the logo you're thinking of?
