Not only does the Torsion shank provide midfoot stiffness, it also extends into the heel and rearfoot to create a firm landing zone.

Regardless, Reebok is the first to feature integrate Pebax foam as a midsole base into a multitude of models.

It could be related to the stack height, but we’re saying it like is. When we say reasonable, we mean it in a Brooks sort of a way. When viewed in isolation, the Floatride foam has plenty of potential. At first, the Floatride’s upper feels strange. The upper is made of a stretchable knit mesh, there’s a midfoot plastic cage, and below all that is a soft and springy Boost midsole. The durable e-TPU midsole was resilient and mildly responsive; the cushioning comfort wasn’t an impediment for slightly faster runs. It provides good amount of traction on wet and dry surfaces. Purely by design or accident, Reebok peaks as a running shoe brand every 10 years or so. Each shoe listed here has something different to offer.

The upper doesn’t feel supportive from the midfoot to the forefoot; one gets the feeling that the foot is being pushed or loaded towards the inner side. Weight: 255 gms/ 9 Oz for a half pair of Men's US 9/UK 8/EUR 42.5/CM 27. By the time a certain running shoe gets to the market, the next edition is already locked in and ready to go.

The midsole also lacks a wide flare or base, and the midfoot has a slim profile. Reebok makes it very clear that Floatride is made of Pebax foam. Perhaps.

For a while, adidas didn’t know what to do with Reebok. Reebok’s lowest point was the brand having to pay $25 million in customer refunds for making unsupported claims about their butt-toning shoes. Just four years ago, it got so bad that Reebok was rumored to be on the chopping block. It nails the difficult balance between cushion and responsiveness thanks to a generous layer of Floatride Energy foam in the midsole—the kind of material you’d normally find on shoes double its price. These are truly an excellent fit and very comfortable shoe. Cushioned and supportive ride, pace-friendly transitions, breathable, smooth interior, good price-value, durable and weather-resistant midsole. The mixed material overlays offer a snugger fit for a better in-shoe experience. Despite the more aggressive cage, the adidas Ultra Boost doesn’t have the biased fit of the Floatride. The Asics Roadhawk FF 2 is a slightly firm daily trainer with a basic upper; the Brooks Launch 7 has a firmer ride than the Roadhawk but with a plusher upper. The lacing turns asymmetrical on the new model, with the first three rows positioned diagonally. The shoe looks nice and the laces are great. Like its distant cousin the Ultra Boost, the Floatride’s easygoing fit is oriented towards the everyday casual user and not runners who clock 50 + miles a week in a wide range of speeds. The only issue I have with them is the soles are too smooth for my bicycle pedals. Improve this review by sharing your insights – submit a review here. Another component directly affecting the fit of the shoe is its criss-cross stretchable laces.

I’ll just go get these somewhere else. Also, with the strange last turning the foot inwards, one can feel the midsole-upper joint under the mid and forefoot. Nike sells the Epic React Flyknit, a running shoe with the rubbery React cushioning and a knit upper. Racing flats like the Reebok Floatride Run Fast Pro (pricey, though) are excellent performers for speed runs, track intervals, and races. That said, if you’re running quicker than 4’30” then a racing flat would be more appropriate. In the 80’s and the 90’s, Reebok was a force to be reckoned with. I have a passion for fitness and especially shoes. The insole isn’t your typical, compression-molded, drop-in kind. The fit is affected by the shoe’s bootie construction that provides a secure, locked-in feel. The relative firmness of the Floatride foam contributes to the overall versatility. And it’s ok to give a running shoe a 95% rating once in a while. The interiors are more comfortable and performance oriented than the Floatride, so buy it if you’re looking for a shoe which can be a casual shoe as well as an everyday runner. Some of them also expressed their desire to buy another pair of this running companion.

Currently we have 42 miles(David) and 57 miles (Matt) on our pairs. My name is Joel. This is true, we’re not making this up. They provide enough comfort to last through a gym session of weighted squats, to lunges, and finishing up a workout with a 3-mile walk/run on the treadmill. The 2020 model gets a sleeve. Reebok gives the term ‘sock-like’ a new meaning as the Floatride’s forward upper resembles a sock – in both look and feel. The traction and durability aren’t as good as the adidas Continental outsole but they suffice for low-intensity activity under dry conditions. A couple of runners noted that the midsole unit of Reebok Trideca 200 is responsive enough to energize the foot. This very lightweight nature gives Floatride an edge over the Boost. Replacing the single strip (on the FFE 1) are two strips – one on either side of the heel. The last used for the upper results in a lop-sided fit. As the foot gradually swells, the midfoot cage feels increasingly intrusive.

Going by that logic, the adidas Ultraboost should behave similarly. Pebax is a registered trademark of Arkema, a French chemical company, and happens to be a shortened version of PolyEther BlockAmides, or PEBA. Solereview does not publish sponsored content nor receive free samples.

That’s the nature of this business. That being said, we’re unsure whether the term Pebax inside the 4% refers to the hard plate, the foam, or both.

The picks below are the latest in a legacy of performance footwear that stretches back well over a century. It wasn’t always like this. The single-piece Ultraknit upper has a soft hand feel with a gentle stretch quality. Midsole foams have truly come of age, we haven’t seen the last of it – there’s a lot more where that came from. The outsole is a medium-soft carbon rubber (not blown rubber) with reasonable levels of durability. For a while, Reebok was a rudderless boat and their in-store assortment was a disjointed mess.

Then came Boost in 2013, and the rest, like they say, is history. Needless to say, the Reebok Floatride doesn’t inspire confidence as far as the support aspect is concerned. For example, long-distance runs feel better in something like the Saucony Triumph 17.

If you look around for shoes with a knit upper and a cushy, non-EVA midsole, there aren’t many options. I bought them for my 12 year old son and he really likes them.

Women’s focused? The foam’s low weight means these shoes can carry a generous slice of it, giving them more cushion than you’d find in the average racing shoe. Nor does it feel mushy and slow. Runners looking for a solid long haul shoe should consider the Harmony Road 3.

Expect the same lifespan from the V2 as the previous model. In most running shoes, rearfoot strikers land forward of the heel edge with plenty of margin to spare. Tennis was hot for Reebok when Michael Chang was on television in the Reebok Court Victory, and their performance basketball footwear (Question/Answer, Shaqnosis and the rest) were a hot commodity even before frustratingly slow dial-up connections and eBay madness were a thing.

This sensation isn’t acute; rather, a nagging feeling which you wish would disappear.
