Comfort is accentuated by the DMX cushion technology that allows the air pods to move freely according to one’s stride. Men and women can cop a pair of these unisex low tops in sizes ranging from 5 to 13 which are all constructed in medium width. Women are advised to go down one and a half sizes to achieve the right fit. This sneaker follows the crosswise length of men’s thus women should be aware.

Bulky dad shoes came relevant in 2017 which was a fortunate phenomenon for the DMX Run 10 Gum. Before large shoes like these were worn with straight cut jeans or shorts by musky old men but nowadays woman can even sport a pair with jeggings and Capri pants.

This Gum color-blocked sneaker comes in two colorways which are White/Skull Grey and Black/Coal. It has tonal uppers which rest upon an almost translucent gum rubber sole with DMX cushioning technology.

Come to think of it, Reebok owes a huge chunk of its glory to its running roots. From creating the earlier versions of spiked shoes to introducing mind-blowing tech, Reebok kept a steady pace of improving the runner’s performance and comfort. The untapped potential of the “running pumps” soon became a notion of customizing feet scores after.

Way back before Reebok became the go-to fitness brand in the 80s, the grandsons of the founder Joseph Foster had already been introducing revolutionary items to the running market. Joe and Jeff had released models like the A150 Rapier, A100 Challenger, A130 Arena, A140 Swift which all contains spikes to propel the user forward.

Then came the Aztec Runners, a marvel that was struggling at first but reached its hay day when it was gazed upon by an entrepreneur named Paul Fireman. Fireman wanted a piece of that UK-based action and settled for an agreement where he would distribute the running silhouettes to North America. The deal took off, and it was a spiraling joy ride for Reebok ever since.

The track-bound shoe scheme was followed by the Reebok Classics, which, by the way, had never overshadowed the fame and sales of the Freestyle, to be honest. The 1983 low top was a promising follow-up to the Freestyle’s success. Equipped with BiDensity Shock Protection System, the Classic Leather and Classic Nylon was proven to be on the top of the running ladder during its prime.

Reebok became busy with other things including basketball and tennis, but its running line-up maintained a steady pace. More than a decade after the release of the Classics, the DMX Run 10 was introduced with a brand-spanking new technology called the DMX Cushioning. Debuting in 1997, the innovative model, which is recently now deemed a sneaker, was hailed as one of the most comfortable running silhouettes in the history of the world.

Replenishing vintage sneakers became apparent in the more recent days and with it came the resurgence of the Reebok DMX Run 10. Classic colorways were restored and were even given a retro hint via the introduction of some aspects like gum rubber evident with the Reebok DMX Run 10 Gum.

  • Aside from the DMX Cushion and gum rubber outsole, the sneaker utilizes an EVA midsole to absorb shock.
  • The materials that compose the upper are leather and textile.
  • Reebok Vector logos are scattered throughout the sneaker’s surface.
