Hybrid outsole grip and stability

The underside of the trainer is covered by a durable rubber compound. It not only protects the platform against abrasion but also has a grippy nature to provide traction on various surfaces.

Following the shoe’s hybrid concept, the outsole unit is divided into two parts right in the middle. The forefoot part features flex grooves that form a grid-like pattern. It allows the platform to bend more easily in this area.

The Reebok CrossFit Lifter 2.0's midsole

The CrossFit Lifter 2.0 is constructed with a wide platform to deliver a larger contact area with the ground. It allows the wearer to feel more steady and in control of their movements.

Just like the outsole, the midsole comprises of two parts. The forefoot employs a soft and flexible EVA foam to accommodate foot mobility during plyometric exercises.

The midfoot-to-heel portion of the midsole is made of the POWERBAX TPU material. It is a lightweight yet firm component which is less compressible than the standard EVA. It creates reliable heel support for the wearer to lean on during weight training.

For those who favor lifters with a more traditional TPU wedge and a 1-inch heel, Reebok offers its classic Legacy Lifter.

Breathable upper

The upper of the Reebok CrossFit Lifter 2.0 completes the hybrid ensemble and is also made different in its front and back sections. The toe box utilizes a lightweight, flexible, and breathable mesh to allow for agile movements and keep the interiors aerated.

Supportive rearfoot section

The back of the trainer is made to be more supportive as it sports a thicker layer of synthetic materials with additional overlays around the collar edges and at the rear. Inside, the collar is generously padded to hug the foot for a lock-down fit.

Out of the box comfort

A signature 3D FuseFrame technology wraps the entire unit. Comprised of a synthetic material, it is meant to deliver instant fit and comfort without the need to break in the footwear. It is lightweight and flexible and yet sturdy enough to offer reliable support.

The Reebok CrossFit Lifter 2.0's lacing system

The tightness is regulated with the help of the lacing system and the single metatarsal strap. A cushiony tongue protects the instep from the pressure of the laces and the strap. The mesh on the tongue also allows fresh air to enter the foot chamber.
