Bottom line

The Reebok Astroride 2D is a neutral shoe most suitable for purchasers looking for a good quality road running footwear at a reasonable price.

  • The abrasion-resistant rubber outsole provides excellent traction on wet surfaces and keeps the shoe performing well for a very long period of time.
  • The ASTROFOAM in the midsole is responsible for the much desired ‘bouncy’ feel in the shoe. It is highly responsive and also very comfortable.
  • The Memory Tech Massage Sockliner further increases the performance and the comfortability of the shoe.
  • The Fusefoam construction maintains a comfortably breathable environment inside the shoe while running and its smooth surface feels seamless against the skin.

This budget-friendly running shoe stays true to size. It comes in the standard running length for both the genders and the standard medium width of D for men and B for women respectively. The Reebok Astroride is most suitable for users with not-so-wide feet.

The Reebok Astroride 2D’s excellent traction on the roads can be attributed to its high-quality rubber outsole. The material is very durable and very resistant to abrasion and other aberrations. It performs well on the road just like the Brooks Launch 6 running shoe.

The full-length ASTROFOAM in the midsole gives a combination of optimal lightweight cushioning and the enhanced responsiveness. The foam is responsible for the springiness in the shoe and it gives the user a high energy-return while one is out on the roads, thereby increasing the efficiency of the runs.

The Memory Tech Massage sock liner in the midsole enhances cushioning of the Reebok Astroride 2D and provides additional comfort underfoot.

The FuseFrame construction in the upper ensures a lightweight support and a seamless feel against the skin. It is also breathable in nature which results in a properly ventilated environment inside the shoe and keeps the runner’s feet cool and dry.

The Lace-up closure locks down the foot in its proper position and maintains a customized fit for the user throughout the run.

The padded tongue and collar further help in holding the foot in its place to prevent sliding inside the shoe. The features also increase the comfortability of the Reebok Astroride 2D.

The textile lining across the upper feels very soft against the skin and provides a great in-shoe feel for the runner.
