- The Cloudride DMX 3.0 is a new iteration in the Reebok walking shoe series. It was created to accompany the wearer in daily walks and running errands. The model retains the proprietary DMX Flex “moving air” technology and the Memory Tech sockliner for continuous cushioning.
- The mesh material has been revamped to offer a more sock-like fit. Its design still serves to keep the foot aerated.
- The supporting overlay at the back has also been altered. It is now thicker and placed closer to the heel to prevent the rearfoot from wobbling.
- A pull tab has been added at the heel. It allows for a smoother on-and-off wear.
The Reebok Cloudride DMX 3.0 comes in both men’s and women’s versions. Lengthwise, the shoe tends to run on the small side, so it might be necessary to go half-a-size to a full size bigger. In terms of width, the footwear is available in B - Medium for women and in D - Medium for men. Based on users’ feedback, the model runs a bit narrow.
The Cloudride DMX 3.0 employs rubber to protect the platform from abrasion. It has a low-profile lug pattern which ensures traction and slip resistance on various outdoor surfaces.
Deep flex grooves are present in the forefoot. They make sure that the platform is pliable enough to accommodate the natural bending of the walking foot.
The shoe utilizes Reebok’s patented DMX Flex technology. As the foot goes through the walking gait cycle, this component squeezes and transfers air from the heel to the forefoot to create customized cushioning.
The DMX works together with the Memory Tech sockliner. It adapts to the shape of the wearer’s foot, contributing to the cloud-like underfoot experience.
The Reebok Cloudride DMX 3.0 uses a one-piece mesh upper to hug the foot in a soft and supportive way. The mesh material on the men’s version is knitted, while the texture on the women’s model resembles jacquard.
A thick synthetic reinforcement is added at the heel. It extends to cradle both lateral and medial sides to keep the rearfoot in place, preventing wobbling and slippage.
The footwear makes use of the low-cut design. It leaves space for the ankle to move freely and make quick transitions.
A conventional lace-up closure secures the midfoot. The flat laces assist in a faster and smoother adjustment and are not supposed to get untied easily.
