- A durable running shoe with built-in comfort, this is what the Reebok Astroride Run Edge claims to bring to the table. Its unique structure makes it ideal for road running, cardio training, and gym workouts.
- While the upper might look basic, it efficiently supplies a lightweight comfort and a breathable fit, as well as an adequate midfoot support.
- The shoe’s unique Astroride midsole is super plush yet almost weightless. It works capably in providing underfoot cushioning and shock absorption. Meanwhile, the carbon rubber on the high-wear areas of the outsole lends durability and traction to the shoe.
The Reebok Astroride Run Edge runs small. Wearers are recommended to go a full size bigger than their usual running shoe to achieve a comfortable fit. Width options are available in D – Medium for the men’s version and B – Medium for the women’s version.
With a high-quality rubber outsole, the Reebok Astroride Run Edge has a durable finish and a high-resistance to abrasion. The heel and toe areas are further reinforced using carbon rubber to protect them from the usual wear and tear. When it comes to durability, it is comparable to the AHAR compound used in the best-selling Asics Kayano 25.
The outsole pattern is square figures that are separated by hollow cross-shaped gaps. This layout promotes a full-ground contact for a steady run.
The Astroride midsole of this shoe makes use of injection-molded ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) to deliver cushioning and shock absorption. The foam gives sufficient bounce and energy return for an enhanced stride.
There is a padded EVA sock liner that gives additional comfort for an even softer underfoot sensation. It also provides a supplemental support for runners with moderate to high arches.
The lightweight mesh upper of the Astroride Run Edge equips the shoe with a breathable quality. It is supported by synthetic overlays on the midfoot area and around the heel to guarantee foot lockdown where it is needed the most.
With a traditional lace-up closure, the foot is presented a convenient way of putting the shoe on and off.
The ankle collar has a low-cut collar design to promote freedom of motion and quick transitions. It works together with the padded tongue to hold the foot in place.
