As one of the pioneer brands in the performance footwear category, Reebok persisted on introducing the market with different technologies that will help its consumers. In 1997, the brand launched the DMX Run 10, a shoe that is branded as "the best running shoe in the history of the world." As ambitious as it sounds, Reebok made this confident statement given that it is clad with the DMX, a system that utilizes moving air technology. Although Nike was the first who introduced air to its sneakers, Reebok made the most out of it as it went through connected pods which in return, provides energy return and stability.
