One of our favourite fitness brands Reebok has just recently unveiled its new Reebok SC87 training collection of footwear and apparel to the Canadian Market.
SC87 Collection? If you’re not a sports fan, you probably don’t know the significance of the SC87 moniker. The new collection is endorsed by none other than three-time NHL all-star Sidney Crosby who’s number and birth year are 87, and 1987 respectively.

We are very proud to have an outstanding Canadian sports icon as part of the Reebok family, and his signature collection, Reebok SC87, represents our brand so well.” What’s great about this collection, is that it’s not only high-performance.It looks pretty slick to.

The Reebok SC87 line features two new footwear offerings in the Reebok SC87 ONE Trainer 1.0 ($109.99) and the Reebok SC87 ZigTech 3.0 ($119.99).
A lightweight trainer that delivers the essentials, Reebok SC87 ONE Trainer 1.0 footwear comes equipped with a breathable upper, durable heel strike and a soft, cushioning sock liner that can accommodate orthotics. Its low-cut design means added mobility needed for the exercises Crosby performs in the gym to get stronger on the ice.
At 9.4 oz. (270 gr) Reebok SC87 ZigTech 3.0 footwear is the lightest, most responsive ZigTech shoe to date. It features a de-coupled heel for an impact-reducing natural shearing during heel strike and its Infinity Impact System midsole keeps Zig units located only where your foot strikes the ground. A strong and lightweight spring plate supports the foot from impact thru the gait cycle and an Active Lacing FitSleeve secures the foot directly over the midsole.
Revealed during this past weekend’s Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer tournament benefiting The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, the Reebok SC87 collection was launched alongside Sidney Crosby’s new Reebok TV commercial, which will air this fall.
