The Net­flix orig­i­nal se­ries “GLOW” and Ree­bok Clas­sics have part­nered up to honor the spunky ladies of the ’80s with col­or­ful sneak­ers.

The show, whose ti­tle stands for the Gor­geous Ladies of Wrestling, fea­tures 12 women who use the pro­fes­sional wrestling scene to try and break into the act­ing world. Ree­bok de­cided to cre­ate two new iter­a­tions of their Freestyle Hi sil­hou­ette for “GLOW” that re­tail for $85.

The sneak­ers were worn by sev­eral of the char­ac­ters in the show’s sopho­more sea­son de­but­ing re­cently.

In 1982, the Freestyle Hi was ac­tu­ally the first ever sneaker cre­ated and mar­keted for women, mak­ing it the per­fect pair­ing for the throw­back show which is set in the 1980s.

To be paired with the ac­tresses’ neon leg­gings, scrunchies and leo­tards, the new col­or­ways of the Freestyle Hi come in white, pink, green and yel­low, or in rose gold and nude.

Ac­cord­ing to the brand, “‘GLOW’ em­braces Ree­bok’s sneaker’s her­itage and ‘fe­male first’ phi­los­o­phy. The se­ries cap­tures a body of strong women who ex­press brav­ery, re­sis­tance, and unity.”

The first sea­son earned much ac­claim and even a Golden Globes nom­i­na­tion for Alison Brie, one of the show’s stars.
