  • Reebok has released many shoes that are designed to meet the specific needs of high-intensity training. One of these products is the Fire TR. This model features a cleatie-like construction that is easy to slip on and off. The upper utilizes a soft and breathable fabric that keeps the foot well-ventilated.
  • The rubber outsole offers traction to prevent slipping while working out. Flex grooves are also present to allow the foot to bend naturally.
  • An EVA foam makes up the midsole of this training shoe. It absorbs shock and responds to the movements of the foot, preventing discomfort or injury in the process.

The Reebok Fire TR is available in both men’s and women’s versions. It is true-to-size, but consumers are advised to try the shoe in person to obtain a secure and comfortable fit. It accommodates those with medium foot dimensions.  The width-profiles are D - Medium and B – Medium for men and women, respectively.

It utilizes a stretchy material for the upper. This fabric is breathable, and it allows the footwear to accommodate wide feet.

The Fire TR features a rubber outsole that is durable and flexible. It features various types of tread patterns. The perimeter uses a diamond pattern while the middle portion uses a combination of horizontal and vertical lines, all serving the same purpose of providing traction on most types of surfaces.

The Metasplit adorns the forefoot area. These flex grooves facilitate natural forefoot flexion while adding more traction to the underside.

The Fire TR uses the injection molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (IMEVA) for the midsole. This material starts off as a molten foam that is injected into a mold, along with a blowing agent. Opening the cast results in the foam expanding up to three times its original size. As the material cools down, it shrinks to get to its final size. This type of foam is bouncy and responsive, and it offers a comfortable bed for the foot. It is durable and resilient, as well.

The Reebok Fire TR features a low-cut design that promotes proper ankle movement.

It uses a combination of mesh and neoprene materials. The mesh is found in the midfoot area, extending up to the toe box and ensuring the ventilation of the foot during workouts.

Neoprene is used in the opening of the shoe. It is a type of rubber that can maintain its stretchy nature for extended periods. It ensures that the foot does not easily slip out while in use.

The lacing system functions more as a support structure than a closure. The eyelets have flat cables coming out of it. These strings extend down to the midsole. Pulling the laces draws in the sides of the shoe closer to the foot, delivering support during side-to-side movements.

A synthetic overlay makes up the external heel clip, along with an elastic gore that connects the two sides of the heel clip. This structure cups the heel to deliver a custom fit. It also anchors the foot to the midsole and prevents it from slipping off of the shoe.

The easy-to-pull collar and the pull-loop on the tongue make it easier for the user to put on the shoe.
