Updates to Reebok Flexagon
- The Reebok Flexagon gets its inspiration from the unique shapes of origami, the Japanese art of folding paper. This cross-training shoe is made for men and women, and though both versions share the same silhouette, some differences make them suitable for the feet of both male and female athletes. These variations include the number of stretch bands and flex grooves used on the shoes. The men’s version also has a higher drop, 13 mm, compared to the 6-mm heel-to-toe height differential of the women’s model.
- The upper is made of engineered mesh that keeps the foot supported and the inside aerated. Stretch bands are incorporated into the eyelets closest to the forefoot. They aim to deliver snugness and a firm hold during side-to-side movements.
- Cushioning the foot is the Astroride Flex TR foam midsole. It is designed to soften impact and provide flexibility. It is also manufactured to be durable as it doubles as the outsole of the trainer. The high-abrasion areas of the underside are lined with rubber pods to keep them from quickly wearing out.
Reebok Flexagon size and fit
The Reebok Flexagon is available in US men’s sizes 7 to 14 and women’s sizes 5 to 11. It comes in medium width profiles, D and B for men and women, respectively. The mesh material of the upper hugs the foot. The stretchy straps at the forefoot integrate with the laces and enhance the snugness of the upper.
The midsole of the Reebok Flexagon doubles as its outsole. It is made to be hard-wearing to endure the abrasions of working out on various types of indoor and outdoor surfaces. Such high-friction areas as the toes and the heel are reinforced with rubber pods to extend their durability.
The underside is adorned with a tread pattern that promotes traction in different directions. The outsole also features flex grooves at the forefoot, facilitating natural foot flexion. It can be noticed that the flex grooves on the women’s version extend to the arch area for maximized pliability.
The Reebok Flexagon is equipped with the Astroride Flex TR foam. This cushioning technology is engineered to be soft to attenuate shock and flexible to promote movement. It is also made to be durable as it also serves as the outsole.
The upper of the Reebok Flexagon uses an engineered mesh that adds flexibility to the shoe. The material is also breathable and allows air to cool the foot chamber.
The trainer is equipped with a traditional lace-up closure that allows users to customize the fit. One difference between the male and female versions is the stretch straps at the forefoot that integrate with the laces. For the men’s version, the straps are found on the first two eyelets, while the women’s version only has a single band on the first pair of eyelets nearest to the toes. The purpose of these elastic bands is to amplify lateral support and keep the fit snug.
The foot is kept locked down by the padded tongue and collar. The plushness of these areas not only delivers comfort but also prevents the shoe from accidentally slipping off while in motion.
