Reebok returns to its vault, retooled one of its groundbreaking cushioning concepts the DMX, short for Dynamic Motion X or DynaMax, and dropped a series of strikingly modern interpretations beginning with the Reebok DMX Fusion. A less-weighing version of this modified kick was branded as the Reebok DMX Fusion Lite.
The first ever Reebok model that flaunted the DynaMax feature is the DMX Run 10 that debuted in 1997 as a running shoe. This sneaker consisted of three independent hollowed components: a two-pod system called “max; “ a shock absorption unit tagged as “shear” that disperses force in various directions; and a supportive, long-enduring “foam” material. Altogether, these elements offer stability and cushioning by distributing air through the midsole chambers.
Two years later, Reebok dropped the DMX Lite in flashy citron mesh webbing that’s lightweight and comfortable. In 2000, Reebok introduced the DMX Foam by teasing the public with the Answer 4 or the fourth signature ball shoe of Allen Iverson. The DMX Foam which is a cushiony and responsive foam unit replaced the moving air cushioning system found in the ‘90s model.
- The DMX Foam has a dual-responsive arrangement that’s made up of two layers.
- The DMX Foam that’s closer to the foot is cushiony and grants high levels of comfort, while the section nearer to the ground is responsive.
- Reebok DMX Fusion Lite’s colorful textile upper is contrasted by stitching details.
- Modernized Reebok DMX Fusion variations mostly feature the moving air technology on the midsole that offers soft cushioning, such as the DMX Fusion TS, DMX Fusion PI, DMX Fusion HC, DMX Fusion NR, DMX Fusion CI, and DMX Fusion AFF.
- From Reebok’s updated DMX catalog, only the low-top Reebok DMX Fusion Lite is built with an injection-molded EVA (IMEVA) midsole with the cushiony DMX Foam.
