The Reebok Daytona DMX Vector is a unisex design available in men’s sizes. For women’s sizing, go down one and a half sizes from the original. For example, a women’s 8 is converted as 6.5 in this unisex sizing chart.

This model has a low-top profile, which allows the ankles to have free range of motion. With that, the wearer can better adapt to quick, sudden transitions in each stride. It also uses a lace-up closure to lock in the feet with a custom fitting. Lastly, the well-renowned DMX cushioning system lies underfoot, ensuring a plush, bouncy ride.

Carrying a Daytona DMX DNA, this model packs some huge hefty styling that would win in a dad shoe contest. Such a shapely, bulky silhouette would pop out in a minimalistic outfit, such as skinny jeans and tapered-down pants and joggers.

But dad shoes aren't just merely about size and shape. It’s about colors as well. These Daytonas are presented in a pair of astonishing colorways worthy of collecting: White/Navy/Mist/Yellow and Black/Grey/White/Neon Red.

While the sculpted DMX-cushioned sole usually pops out first, the colors in the Daytona DMX Vector aren’t left quite far behind. However small, the new details and accents give the classic beefy silhouette a certain richness, flair, and identity. Indeed this iteration stands out on its own.

The past decades that rolled saw Reebok coming up with futuristic, perhaps bizarre, designs. Think of the split soles, the air Pump technology, and the DMX airpod cushioning. Those models who wielded these technologies became iconic silhouettes, which remind everyone that Reebok were the one to dare to push the envelope of design.

Retro-ed in 2018, the late-’90s DMX Daytona has a brilliant iteration. Though freshly designed, especially its upper, Daytona DMX Vector still features the DMX pod system, where air flows back and forth under the foot and adapts to every step.

  • This Daytona iteration features a removable EVA sock liner to accommodate orthotics.
  • Its midsole also contains an EVA compound, complementing the DMX cushioning, for superior comfort.
  • The huge shank plate in the midfoot adds stability.
