The low-top DMX Fusion Heritage Colors by Reebok is relatively true to size. This unisex-designed Reebok sneaker is available in men’s sizes that range from 3.5 to 13 US. Women may purchase this sneaker with a sock-like top by going 1.5 lower than their typical sneaker length. The use of Ultraknit makes this DMX version one of the lightest. It also grants the needed responsiveness for all-day comfort with the presence of the DynaMax cushioning. This section is comprised of Reebok’s renowned moving air technology inside a pod-like sole formation or the DynaPODS.
The modern Ultraknit upper tech mixed with an old-school runner style produces one of the most stylish and comfortable Reebok fashion sneakers that are gender-neutral, the DMX Fusion HC. Its seemingly runway-ready minimalist upper flecked with fascinating shades offers a nice punch to your usual casual wear.

Reebok’s proprietary Ultraknit technology and its trademark DynaMax moving air cushioning are the star features of Reebok DMX Fusion Heritage Colors. What sets it apart from other DMX Fusion varieties is the reinterpretation of the heritage shades of the ‘90s model such as Industrial Bronze and Viking Purple fused with contemporary colors to appear fresh and up-to-date.
Three words come to mind when referring to Reebok’s DMX Run 10: “moving air technology.” Touted globally as the best running shoe at the time of its release in 1997, the DMX Run 10 featured for the first time Reebok’s breakthrough cushioning technology billed as the DMX, short for DynaMax.
The DMX was Reebok’s answer to the Swoosh brand’s proprietary Air cushioning units incorporated into the midsoles of Nike Air and Nike Zoom Air shoes. For the DynaMax, it showcases balanced air chambers or pods at the bottom of the shoe, specifically on the forefoot and heel. These cavities are connected via an airflow channel that actively transfers and disperses air pressure in every heel-to-toe movement. Thus, this system was also coined as the moving air technology. Back then, the DynaMax helped propel runners in achieving their personal best as it offers maximum cushioning and responsive stride.
In 2018, or past the 20th year mark of the DMX Run 10, Reebok dropped a series of fully modernized variations of the ‘90s road performer under the DMX Fusion collection. This lineup utilized Reebok’s proprietary and advanced knitting process, the Ultraknit, while keeping the trademark DMX air cushioning feature that transfer air on each step.
The androgynous designs of the DMX Fusion silhouettes which include the Reebok DMX Fusion HC, Reebok DMX Fusion Lite, Reebok DMX Fusion NR, have been captivating the interest of fashion-savvy consumers since these aren’t only well-cushioned and lightweight but ultra-chic too.
