The Flexagon 2.0 continues the brand’s line of everyday workout trainers. It caters to both men and women who want a do-it-all trainer that’s also stylish and easy on the pocket. Designed with stability and flexibility in mind, the shoe can accommodate agility drills and high-impact training.

Lightweight protection. Because this Reebok trainer is primarily designed for gym use, it does not employ a full-length hard-core rubber outsole. It only features two rubber pods, one in the forefoot and the other one in the heel, for added traction and wear-resistance.

This construction also helps in keeping the sole flexible and lightweight. The wavy texture is meant to give traction on gym floors.

Cushioned and stable. The Flexagon 2.0 is equipped with a traditional EVA foam for cushioning. This kind of material is typically used in other training shoes in the same price range. It has a fairly lightweight nature and basic responsiveness to protect the foot from impact throughout the workout.

The foam features outriggers in the heel and forefoot sections to widen the base for added stability. The midsole also slightly extends upwards around the rearfoot to cradle the foot and minimize wobbling.

Breathable support. Reebok prioritized breathability in this shoe design. Its toe box and tongue are made of fabric with large ventilation pores. The panels on the sides are also instilled with mesh.

At the same time, the Flexagon 2.0 keeps the foot secured by the midfoot cage system. It has synthetic zig-zaggy overlays that provide structure and lateral support.

Finally, there is a peculiar addon at the heel. The trainer uses two elastic criss-cross straps instead of a traditional heel cup to support the hindfoot.

The heel apex of the collar has been intentionally oversized. The wearer can hold on to in while putting on the shoe.
