The Reebok Hydrorush II is a training shoe designed for men. It is made of lightweight and flexible materials to maintain comfort during workout sessions.
This model borrows the silhouette of the original Reebok Hydrorush. The main difference between the two models is the support structure at the midfoot. The older model has a saddle at the rearfoot as well, while the new version uses a cage-like structure at the midfoot with an overlay on the heel.
The bottom of the Reebok Hyrdorush II uses a high-abrasion rubber. The compound is designed to withstand indoor and outdoor workout sessions. It also features a tread pattern that allows it to grip different types of surfaces. Flex grooves are scattered throughout the bottom, allowing the foot to move naturally.
Providing a comfortable ride to the Reebok Hydrorush II is the full-length EVA foam. This cushioning platform is engineered to be soft and flexible to facilitate the natural forward movement of the foot. It also absorbs shock, protecting the foot and the rest of the lower extremities against the impact.
Adding a layer of cushioning to the heel is the dual-density liquid foam. This compound is designed to instantly adapt to changes in pressure to keep the heel protected when it strikes the ground, further reducing the stress on the joints of the lower extremities.
The upper of this Reebok workout shoe is made of a lightweight and breathable mesh. The material is engineered to be soft enough to allow movement but still rigid to afford steadiness while training.
Synthetic overlays form a cage-like structure at the midfoot which integrates with the lacing system. This element enhances the locked-down fit and lateral support when the laces are cinched. There’s also an overlay at the back, serving as an external heel counter that steadies the rearfoot.
The interior of the trainer is lined with a soft mesh fabric for a comfortable experience that also aids in keeping the foot chamber aerated. The plush collar and tongue steady the foot during workouts and prevents it from slipping out of the footgear
- The original Reebok Hydrorush was created in collaboration with the Watts brothers. J.J., T.J., and Derek, who all play in the National Soccer League and they all helped create a trainer that would perform well both indoors and outdoors.
