About me

Joe Foster

Founder of Reebok

I am Joe Foster, myself and my late brother Jeff founded Reebok in 1958 after leaving the family business J W Foster & Sons.  My Grandfather, also, Joe Foster is credited with inventing running spikes and training shoes during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.  I retired from daily life at Reebok in 1989 whilst Reebok was the number 1 sports brand in the world. Today I remain a global ambassador for the brand and my retirement has come to a grinding halt with the publication of my book Shoemaker.  I am very happy to have met Steven Foster (no relation!) and be part of this new platform for sharing ‘Golden Nuggets’ with everyone in the coming months.
